Texas Organization Helps Seniors Get Jobs

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX--Some seniors may think that they're too old to find a new job, but a Texoma organization wants them to know that such is not the case.

Experience Works, formerly known as Green Thumb, just opened its state-wide office in Denison, Texas Thursday. Their mission is to help employers take advantage of this often under-utilized population of the workforce.

"Most employers today are beginning to realize that seniors have a high work ethic, they're very dependable, very reliable and do a very good job, and that's something very much needed in the workforce today," Dave Lack said, Texas Federal State Director of Experience Works. 

Lack says that more than 1,000 seniors were helped last year, and that he anticipates 1,300 more will be assisted for 2010.
