I do not pretend to know. I do feel its unfortunate that this happens. He does have a background in delivery and the drug business, and both of those fields have decent jobs. I don't know what UPS, FedEx, DHL pay, but I never felt they were minimum wage jobs. They're unionized, right?

How many 63 year old UPS delivery men have you met? I would bet zero. They have to be able to move packages of different weights and sizes. The job is physically demanding.

I'm not saying there are no options for someone like this guy, but at the same time there are definitely fewer than there are for a younger person.
