At the moment, I'm doing contract work but my age of 51 is becoming an issue at finding employment.

Since I'm earning less before, I'm thinking of working at Uber-eats on a bicycle in New York City for additional income! I know a couple of cyclist who are making $100.00 dollars a week part-time. I too am trapped by a mortgage. ;-(
Yeah, I'm with ya. Looking for a job with benefits at age 60. So might need a car to at least FIND a job. Then figure out logistics. I am a lot closer to Medicare age than you but you should be OK getting a job at 51. A good friend died in an auto accident this week and two more are in cancer treatments, so don't think I am complaining about needing a car. Happy to be alive and healthy!

Good luck in 2019 man! Should be awesome.
