"Retirement"? What's That?

More and more people are finding out they either have to work until they drop dead, or, if they can't find work after they've been kicked to the curb, drop dead anyway.

It's just what the neolibs want.

Even so, one-third of retired survey respondents said they did not stop working by choice. The figures were higher within certain demographic groups: racial minorities, those with less formal education or lower household incomes were more likely to feel they had no option but to retire. Eight percent say they were forced from a job because of their age. In interviews, survey respondents cited health as well as layoffs followed by unsuccessful job searches.

I know that feeling firsthand.
