Disposable Americans

I had a bit on my mind and decided to pen an essay on older Americans being "unemployable". After I wrote this, I found an older discussion on this topic here.

dis•pos•a•ble adjective---designed for or capable of being thrown away after being used or used up: (“the definition of disposable,” n.d.). This came from Dictionary.com based on Random House. At that website, there are two other definitions, but the relevance for this essay. A bit of backgrounder for why this subject becomes personal. This author is 49 years old at composition time; having been out of the workforce for over 5 years now after Transportation series of jobs, (it would be generous to call it a career after only 5 years). The trucking business is notorious for being difficult on one’s health; it certainly was on mine. One of the big issues in the business is a lack of consistent sleep, which leads to many diseased problems down the road.

The essay continues at herbied.edublogs.org. Even though I am 5 months away from 50, this applies to anyone starting at 45.
