During this recent economic downturn, Retirement Yenta has seen many people her age downsized. While it is not fun to be let go from a job you have held for many years, Retirement Yenta thinks it can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. This week, your dear Yenta was reading the New York Times online and ran into an article about the Unemployed Over 50 crowd and how there are fears of not returning to the workforce. To this, Retirement Yenta wants to assert her ideas of semi-retirement, or partial retirement. If this little Yenta had been downsized at the age of 55, she would not go looking for a job back in corporate America, she would run to her local Urban Outfitters and become a part-time sales associate.
