Wisconsin: Why Retirees Are Still Working

Maureen Wallenfang, writing for the Appleton, Wisconsin Post-Crescent, tells the tales of a number of Fox Cities area seniors who have said no thanks to retirement. While some do it for the money, others do it to stay connected. Thus, for example, the retiremetn advice of one of the seniors she talked to was "Don't do it." "'Cut back instead. Keep your finger on what you've done all your life. It's part of you. That's so important,' he said. 'The heart attacks come when you're bored.'"

The paper also ran a companion piece by Wallenfang about how "Some seniors returning to work force need retraining."
