He started working in 1900
He has been working since 1900   ((This implies that he is still working)
If so he must be rather old by now. Please ask him to tell us the secret of immortality.

You just beat me to it. Must have posted almost simultaneously. Content almost same as well. However since yours appears before mine, I fear I may face an Intellectual Property Rights ( 知识产权?)case.

Workouts geriatric toiler reminds me of an old joke:

Two old men were sitting in the garden of an Old Peoples Home. A third old man comes towards them jogging, skips a few hundred times, then sits down. Though his hair is white and his skin wrinkled, and he has a sickly look about him, he is much more active than most inmates of the Home.

"What is the secret of your youth", they asked the newcomer. "Are you a vegetarian, a teetotaler, were you an abstinent monk in your youth"?
No, the newcomer replied. I drank two bottles of liquor everyday, ate only red meat, smoked 2 packs of cigarettes and had five wives.

"But......Wow! You look so young! How old are you?"

The newcomer said, a bit sheepishly, "I turned 26 yesterday"!
