What in the hell does Jeb know about the labor force? He was born with a silver crowbar up his ass.
Age discrimination is rampant, and many people are kicked to the curb YEARS before they can qualify for Social Security, even early Social Security.
Lotsa luck ever resuming the same pay or career once tossed out.
After four years of substituting, with NO money during the summer months to cushion the blow, I was able to land a regular part-time job with NO benefits or am pension-eligible. I could have retired at WCSD by now if I hadn't had been illegally fired seven years ago. There may be a chance of someday resuming teaching, but I am now 60 years old.
I may NEVER be able to quit the labor force entirely.
I am one of the "lucky" ones, I suppose, in that I found some kind of stable income.
If anything, the Social Security age should be lowered given the realities of the labor market.
