How Will We Help Those Who Cannot Find Work? 1937

“Letter to the Editor,” from the January, 1937, issue of The Southern Planter

What are we going to do about the man past 40 who, through no fault of his own, loses his job and cannot find another because of his age? He has a family to support and is just as strong and able to work as ever. He does not want charity but just a chance to make his living as he has always done before.

What is our country going to do about this? If no one will employ him, I think the old age pension will have to be moved back to 40 years instead of 65.
