Working ... The New Retirement

4 posts in this topic

The majority of Americans no longer view retirement as a time to kick back and relax, new research shows.

A study from CareerBuilder revealed that 60 percent of workers over the age of 60 plan to look for new jobs after retiring from their current companies, up from 57 percent a year ago.

While some employees over 60 plan to work only a few more years, many expect to stay employed into their 70s. The research found that 15 percent of workers in their 60s think it will be at least 7 more years before they can fully walk away, while more than 10 percent don't think they'll ever be able to retire.

They will get all those super abundant jobs that are out there, and help the young to get them to :w00t:

Its a bit of a nice fantasy that people have that they will be able to get jobs when they retire. The reality is that post 45 almost everyone (apart from the hyper specialist contractors) are literally redundant and will never work again.

The reality is that poverty and isolation is what awaits retires.
