Who are the "Last of the Dinosaurs"?
In the early 70's the United States went through a manufacturing "boom". The Vietnam War was coming to an end, the economy was growing stronger, and technology was on its way to being one of the biggest industries.
Along with the advancements, good paying jobs were becoming easier to find.
Wages were steadily rising.
There was the opportunity for good retirement plans
Better health care coverage for employees and their dependents.
Then suddenly in the early 80's, it came to a streaking halt.
Many workers who had thought they had found financial security were in danger of losing all they had worked to achieve.
Some were lucky enough to hang on for the "ride", while others were not so fortunate. The "ride" has been a long one. We have yet to rekindle the "boom" of the 70's.
Today many of the workers who thought they had made it through the hard times, have either been laid off for extended periods of time or lost their jobs completely.
"The Last of the Dinosaurs" are the hardworking men and women who have found themselves searching for new careers at ages when they were planning for retirement.
Searching for new careers has not been an easy task for this group of individuals
2..They are educated and experienced in their chosen fields.
"We may be the Last of the Dinosaurs in industry", but through technology we have become the Businesses of the Future.
