    Correct, we don't job hop, but we are also more prone to illness and medical care needs. Plus with work requiring physical activities, younger people run circles around us, just like we ran circles around the older people when we were in our 20's and 30's.

    Workman's compensation comes with a ridiculous cost. The less claims the better. Older people are more likely to get hurt on the job than younger people. In most cases, I can't do anything standing for more than 10 minutes before my back starts to go out. I'm okay walking, but when I work in the yard, much of it is taking brakes to allow my back to rest. When I was younger, I could stand nearly all day and work.

    According to some interpretations of the law, they are in poverty due to unequal protection of the law in any at-will employment State. There can be no legal or moral Requirement to work in an at-will employment State. The unemployed should be able to apply for unemployment compensation for simply being unemployed.

    And, only illegals don't care about the law and only immorals blame the Poor for not being able to afford better protection of the law under our form of Capitalism.

    Poor yes, poverty no. We have to quibble for legal purposes.

    No, we don't. Poor or impoverished, they bear some responsbility for their own condition.

    Not in this case. Equal protection of the law is the answer to simple poverty in our republic.

    There can be no legal or moral Requirement to work in an at-will employment State.
