The people in power give speeches about this but fundamentally it's what they want. When a 65 year old needs to keep working, or a 75 year old needs to keep working, it just increases the supply of labor so the average cost of labor drops. Lower wages for all.

I don't know how anyone can retire. I make a crazy good income but saving the money to have a retirement that's more than Social Security plus enough money each month to heat a dog house is almost impossible.

Maybe it would work if we were all doctors. (Of course not, if we were all doctors then they would get paid $7.15 an hour too. Hooray capitalism.)
