Man Celebrates 101 By Going to Work

Hy Goldman is the epitome of a loyal employee. Goldman has been working at Capitol Lighting for almost as long as the average American male lives: 73 years. Goldman has been working there without interruption since June 1941, pausing only to serve in World War II when he was drafted in 1943. “In those days we did everything,” Goldman said. “There was no technology. We knew what inventory we had in our store by memory. Today you look it up on a computer.” As a token of thanks, Capitol Lighting threw Goldman a party for his 101st birthday on Monday, but he has no intention of stopping. “What am I going to do, sit around and grow old?”
