1. Looks to me like some older people are working longer to avoid starving

 

since many don't have pensions. or their pensions were ripped off, or their Social Security isn't enough to pay rent, buy food, and obtain prescription medications.


Please let's not make this into a war between the young and the old. Many older people would love nothing better than to retire, if they could only afford it. I know people who retired, then went back to work after retiring because they were broke.
