At 100, woman still working 11 hours a day, 6 days a week

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Felimina Rotundo works 11 hours day, six days a week at a Buffalo laundromat and says she has no plans to quit working even though she turned 100 two months ago.

She tells WGRZ-TV ( ) that she got her first job at 15 during the Great Depression and has been working ever since.

Rotundo works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. washing clothes and handling dry cleaning at the College Laundry Shoppe. She says she hasn't considered retirement and will continue working as long as her health is good.

Rotundo, who hit the century mark in August, says she likes being out and working because it gives her something to do.

She says too many people retire too soon. Her advice to her peers: "Get out and do some work."
