I also Apoligize for,Jumping this thread! How about 6 Flags Amusement Park,or Anheuser-Busch Industries,I know both of those have Younger folk,workin' for em'.You live in the Flatlands,there's gotta' be Farms everywhere,or close by anyhow,Have you tried inquiring to work at a Farm? Churches are always reliable sources for info,regarding employment.Perhaps a local church's Pastor would allow you to use his name as a Reference.References are one of the Best way's to get your foot in the door.Check out Monster.com & Craigslist for Yardwork,etc.Whatever your endeavours,Be Honest,Alway's! Best o' Luck to you!

I dont' think that 52 is a problem, but like other said, they tend to hire you. Is your back (and belly) up to long hours, horrible elements, being crouched under (or in) a car trying to intubate, carrying a backboard 100 yards to the helo, manuevering in the cramped on-board conditions?

Are you thinking like 911, medivac work, or the long-distance transports?

If you're really having a tough time locally, I know lots of areas that are remote will have air ambulances, and those folks tend to be bit older. Places like Alaska, I'd assume Canada, etc. Of course, you'd better enjoy moving there!

Not to burst your bubble about "Fast food" jobs but some of them are quite good and can pay well. I work full time for a city government. I also work part time delivering pizza two nights a week. On a good night I can make thirty dollars an hour and on a bad night (no deliveries) I make 8.50 an hour. I have held every position at my second job except general manager. I'm 38 and actually enjoy working at my second job.
If it ain't bleeding, it doesn't hurt.

It is funny you mention this. My childhood friend dropped out of high school in the middle of ninth grade. Just about that time I went into the military. Well, some years later when I am home on leave I find out this guy is a locksmith with a very successful business. Guess how he got started? Yup, he looked at one of those schlocky ads on the inside of a pack of matches. Now thirty -plus years later he is looking to sell his locsmithing business and his used car lot and retire to Newfoundland, Canada. Crazy isn't it? I love America!!
