The people are well organized and they greet each other whenever they meet. It's nice for someone to say hey to you.

Employment in this area has always been a "who you know" situation. Unless you have a advance degree in a medical or computer based skill. Persons over the age of 60 are finding it harder to maintain positions as younger managers are coming into power and are forcing them to retire or showing them the door for trivial reasons. The ability to sue is deterred due to expensive fees of competent attorneys. This leaves these seniors in a tough posture particularly if they are not eligible for medicare and have not reached age 65 to qualify for partial social security.
