What kind of jobs can you get with over 30 years of experience in construction?

My father has owned his own small business (very small, like only 2 employees) in concrete and construction for over 30 years now. Aside from concrete work, he has done some small home repairs, c.o. work, digging foundations for houses (he has a backhoe) and the like. The thing is, with the economy how it is now, he can no longer find any work, it has been like this for a while and he is having trouble paying the bills. He is now seriously considering bankruptcy. Does anyone know what types of positions he could get with his experience?

Labor. I know many people who would LIKE some concrete work done, but cannot afford it. Maybe if he lowered his profit? lowered his price? Everbody knows concrete work is expensive, and it's because of the charge of the people doing it.
