So what you're saying is Trader Joe's hires people with decades of past professional experience - who are probably mainly there as a way to get health insurance until they qualify for Medicare, and probably could have stayed longer in their past professional careers if they couldn't find an employer like TJ's offering health insurance.

I was just commenting on the fact that they appeared to be "happy" working there. One of the women had been laid off from corporate jobs several times. One company was taken over by another and she left with nothing after ten years of service. They got no pensions either. I am sure they are working just for the health benefits and as you say, until Medicare kicks in. I suspect they consider themselves lucky to be working at all in this economy.
