I see nothing wrong with this. 65 really is too young to retire nowadays.

Most of the older guys at the home depot I go to are retired professionals. The department head in hardware is a retired engineer, for example.

Unless you're rich, and can afford to travel, play golf everyday, ect., retirement can get pretty boring.

They can go work for Hostess and make Twinkies. Oh wait...no they can't. Nice job Baker's Union, you got 19K people fired on Thanksgiving Day. I guess they're most likely thankful that they can now collect unemployment for 2 years.

The sad thing is that in 4 years, it will move up to 85 before they kick in.

Yes it was the unions fault and not the venture capitalists who sucked the company dry, took out millions in loans, spent tons on exec pay, and then told the employees they'd have to take a pay cut to save the brand. Totally the union.

Yea thanks you old farts - you want to feel "useful" in your dotage so you do it by farking some young person out of a job. fark off and die old man - get into retirement or GTFO. The economy needs you to give up your job to someone more deserving. If I walked into a shoe store and some 75 or 80 year old man came up to help me, I would be done shopping in that place.

Yea, because you 2 assholes are just the guys I want waiting on me when I shop. Ask any store manager who he prefers to hire, old farts with an established work ethic, or some idiot kid who is going to spend most of his day texting his friends, and calling in sick on a whim half the week.

As I noted above, the home depot I shop at is staffed by quite a few older guys who take their job seriously. The rest are a bunch of entitled assholes like you 2 who act like I'm bothering you when I ask for assistance.

And this right here is exactly the attitude that has us hip deep in shiat right now. The "only i can do it right" attitude.

You wanna know WHY those people dont give a fark about their jobs? because by their age they should be making 3X as much working in head office instead of having to listen to over the hill nearly dead old farts like yourself. So if they are going to be stuck for 15 years doing an entry level job waiting for you old bastards to die off, maybe.. just maybe they dont care anymore because no matter what they do, you wont leave.

If you're stuck at an entry level job for 15 years, you might want to re-examine your life. I think you might discover that you are the problem. 

I'm a contractor, and I try to hire young guys, train them, ect. Know what I get?

"Duuuuude, I need $20 an hour man."

"What are your qualifications?"

"I'm 18 years old, graduated high school (barely), I can't add 2+2 without a calculator, don't know which end of a hammer to hold. Oh, and I will need to spend most of my day texting my friends."

I had to buy one asshole a new iphone. I felt bad after I smashed it with a crowbar. He was supposed to be holding a rafter in place while I fastened the other end. Instead, he dropped his end trying to get to his iphone to answer a text message, almost knocking me off a ladder.

No matter what your mommy told you as a child, you're not special. Being stuck for 15 years at an entry level job should be your first clue.

Baby boomers were supposed to save and plan for their future. They didnt. And now the future generations have to pay for their party. So when the future generations are telling you to get off the freakin pot so they can start paying for your party.. maybe you should listen.

And if you give me the "i cant afford retirement" then my answer is "you are the problem".

First off, I'm a long way from retirement age. I'm simply telling you what I see at a store I frequent. My wife and I won't have much of a problem retiring on our terms.

My point is that there are guys out there who really don't need to work, but still want to feel like they can contribute to society, and be a part of things.

Nothing new, really. Plenty of old fart millionaires out there still chugging away.

Retirement is highly overated. Personally, I want something to do to keep me engaged when I put down the hammer. I've seen what happens to people when they just sit around all day waiting to die.

Thats what hobbies are for. There are only so many business opportunities available and for every year that someone who COULD or SHOULD be retired stays in the business thats a job or sale or opportunity that is taken away from someone younger who needs to start their family.

Growing old and dying sucks, but its a fact of life that baby boomers want to pretend doesnt exist. They need to face reality and stop punishing the next generations. They have done enough damage as it is.

Dont forget that the boomers got their jobs with nearly no university education and yet every job these days requires it. Thats a massive expense that the new work force has to pay for before they can afford things like family and saving for retirement. And the longer they get pushed down into menial jobs because the proper opportunities arent available because uncle jim wants to work until hes 90 "just to stay active" is a MASSIVELY selfish act that HURTS the younger generation. Get out of the way and find something else to do.

Oldsters keeping a job so they have something to do is all well and good, but there are tons of people in the workforce in their 70s who are working because they have to. They have no retirement money and/or need the extra money for a spouse or to pay for their healthcare (SS and Medicare don't cover everything). In addition to it being absolutely shameful, it's a further hindrance to younger people looking to get jobs and careers off the ground. So we have a bunch of oldsters who are going to work until they die or stroke out, and a bunch of young people stuck at the starting line, being unable to get the hours/jobs they want, missing out on productive years to build their retirement, start families, spend money, etc.

Even if we're talking crappy retail jobs, those are still jobs that younger people can have while they go to school, or that someone without college can have to provide health insurance for their family.

Jump to conclusions much, dumbass? I have a master's degree and a LONG history of gainful employment in upper level accounting. I haven't worked retail since I was 18. That does NOT negate the fact that you Boomers are self entitled douches who want to have their SS and work too, leaving many people without my skills, education or luck out of the work force while also calling those same young, inexperienced people a drain on the economy. You can't have it both ways...either you retire and take the SS and shut up, or you keep that job, but quit whining about the fact that people who are 18-25 can't find even an ENTRY level job because there are still people like you clogging up the system.

A lot of the old ladies at my Mom's work refused to retire despite generous benefits (Pension and SS) because they were afraid they would die.

They literally did nothing else with their lives but work and watch TV. WTF? Get a hobby! Go volunteer!

It's only going to get worse because Baby boomers did not save for retirement and now have to work longer, which is just going to screw over their children, which leads to them supporting adult children, which leads them to working longer, its a vicious cycle.

It does my heart good to know that when I collect Social Security and Medicare, you're going to be chained to the oars paying for it, and likely won't ever get those benefits yourself because my generation will have sucked it dry by then. In fact, when I finally kick it at age 102 I think I'll have my heirs conceal my death so that the SS checks keep coming long after I'm gone, just because it'll screw you even more.

flak attack: Life expectancy is rising. Of course the number of people over 75 in the workforce is increasing.


So much THIS!

When social security was started, I think average life expectancy was 63. So they picked 65 as a starting point for SS, since they didn't think you would be around that long to collect it.

My parents have been collecting SS for over 20 years, and show no signs of giving up the ghost just yet.

Healthy boomers can expect to collect for 30+ years. And you want them to get out of the workforce NOW and start collecting? There is a tipping point coming down the road where we really just won't have the money to pay that bill.

Actually you WOULD want me there because when I was younger I learned that hard work, common sense, and initiative get you where you want to be in life. No job is beneath me, be it cleaning tables, filing files or whatever. You just do the damned job right the first tim and don;t biatch.

Now as for these old farkers - GTFO and get into retirement - people younger than you need a job to LIVE not just so they feel farking "useful". Give me a motherfarking break. You want to feel useful - get thee down to the soup kitchen for a volunteer shift!

These are folks who could get great jobs making middle class wages straight out of high school, nearly free college if they wanted it, a house, a car, and a family only nearly a single income.
They tell use we're worthless. Because why? Because there are no great jobs with middle class wages straight out of high school? College costs what a house used to cost? A house costs 10x what college costs? And to make matter worse, they won't just retire and free up some more of the low-wage work that's left "because they need something to do." And then they say we're worthless, again.

They may have built it, but they didn't pay for it. They're asking us to pay for it. They tell us we're worthless, because no matter how hard we work, we can't get to a level they took for granted. They tell us we're worthless, while they enjoy a lifetime's worth of good times, refusing to recognize that we'll see no such thing. They tell us we're worthless, and then ask us to pay for their retirement.

The faster they die, the better.
 
2012-11-24 06:52:58 AM
Sergeant Grumbles: First of all, I have never told a young person they were worthless. I don't know who these people are that are telling young folks this, but that is very wrong.

When I got out of high school in the early 1970's, I was making $1 an hour, hardly a middle class wage.

I think at that time you could go to Ohio State University for around $1700 a quarter, including room and board. I could not afford that at the time.

A lifetime of good times? When the wife and I got our first house, interest rates were 13%, in the 1980's, which by the way was during a recession. I don't think it was until the late 80's, early 90's that I started making over $10 an hour.

I've got over a decade before I can retire, I will have to work until 68 to collect my full pension and SS benefits. It's not that I want to work that long, I would love to retire at 62, but thanks to Obama, that won't happen.

Pick: I don't know who these people are that are telling young folks this, but that is very wrong.


You sound like you actually had it tough, which is why you aren't going around telling people they're worthless. It's the people in this thread that are that are have usually got a life story like the one I describe.
My trigger finger is itchy after Thanksgiving thanks to my father in law. He graduated from college debt free in 1976, paid for by his parents and working only summers in a warehouse. His sole hardship was he had to move out of Tennessee to get a job. He bought a house for 40K and had two kids on a single income. He doesn't understand why I don't have a house or why he doesn't have grandchildren. I wouldn't be surprised if he actually thinks I spend all of my money on video games, when the reality is that my college education cost as much as his house did in 1970, and I have to pay that off in a meaningful way before I can think about a house. He refuses to see. Prefers to think that I just haven't worked as hard as he did.

You may have had it rough, but don't fall for the Obama bullshiat. He's only had any effect the last four years of your life. He's no the reason the economy crashed, he's not the reason it's slow to recover, and he is not responsible for your inability to retire.
I'll leave on this note: A pension? What's that?

Oh wow, and the younger generation is entitled/uneducated.
