Bob Witkop is thinking of dyeing his hair.
Though he’s 70 years old, Witkop has no desire to retire. But at the moment, he’s involuntarily out of the daily grind.
The day he got laid off in April of last year, he packed up his office, came home and told his wife the bad news. They knew the economy was weak and guessed it’d take a couple of months to find something.
“I had no idea,” he said. “It’s over a year later and I’m still looking.”
