by Joshua Zumbrun of Forbes, reports on 10 cities where the unemployment rate for retirement age works are low. In fact, the top city of Anchorage, Alaska had an retirement-age unemployment rate of 0%, meaning everyone that wanted a job could get one. Here's the list from the article.
- Anchorage, Alaska
- Washington, D.C.
- Southern Connecticut
- Lincoln, Nebraska
- Lexington, Kentucky
- Houston, Texas
- Des Moines, Iowa
- Raleigh, North Carolina
- Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas
- Tallahassee, Florida

For those already living in these areas, finding a job as after retirement age should be less of a challenge.
