What do you think about Elinor?

A good friend sent me the link to Elinor's story: http://dailynightly.nbcnews.com/_new...-the-job-at-93

I think she's an inspiration!

I don't think inspiration even describes it. She doesn't look like she's slowed down at all.

You should re-read that story. She's states that when she started she made .65 cents an hour, which is 38 dollars less than she makes now. So riveters at the lazy b make 38.65 hour to install rivets? Where do I apply?

She is one hell of a riveter but can she make a Sandwich?







Truth of the matter is she can probably out work 90% of the rest of the crew. Probably doesn't sit on her ass and moan about how bad things are once she gets off work.
