Seniors In Mobile Homes - A Hidden Seasonal Workforce

From the "Who Knew?" department - there is a seasonal workforce of "retired" people who live in mobile homes and can therefore readily travel around the country and stay for months or weeks as needed.

Amazon is one company that has recruited workers from this unexpected pool as part of their CamperForce prpgram, and seems to be happy with the results.
And though warehouse jobs were physically taxing -- not an obvious fit for older bodies -- recruiters came to see CamperForce workers' maturity as an asset. These were diligent, responsible employees. Their attendance rates were excellent.
