UnderCover Waitress: Take the Poll

Take the Poll

According to the Ventura County Star, the average age of waitresses working at the Vagabond Inn is about 60. Based upon the information in the article, The Human Cost of Raising the Retirement Age, that average could go up.

Republican Senators are unveiling plans to raise the retirement age to 69 or 70 for those born in 1960 or later. They claim that they are doing this for economic reasons, but in reality they must hate old people.
The article points out the various and sundry costs of raising the retirement age -- human costs. It is well worth the read.

So, in the next few years when Granny can't pick up your food in a timely manner, it may have something to do with the hip replacement surgery. And she is going to have to walk back and forth quite a few times, because the arthritis makes it difficult to carry many plates at once. All of this is, of course, assuming that she remembers that you placed an order to begin with.

For the record, I do not hate and do hope I have not offended elderly people. I sincerely believe that they should be allowed to retire and enjoy their winter years, not work themselves into the grave.

Do You Want to Wait Tables at Age 70?
