This is an interesting point: sure, it's funny, but it illustrates the conflict and flaw in government thinking:

The US government wants to raise the retirement age for employees past 65.

Hell, the French are RIOTING because their government is proposing to raise the retirement age two years to 62!

Problem is, everyone has to be SOMEwhere. Businesses don't WANT people over 40 or 50. They cost too much. Plus, you have to HAVE a job at 65+ before you can retire FROM it.

At a time when businesses don't want older workers, the government wants workers to work to a higher age.

WTF??

BZ, I've learned seeing my dad being unemployed after 40 for so many years to live more thrifty and be ok with lower wages when I get old.

But you're raising a very good point. The more unemployment the more hirable people after 40 will be. It's a disaster in France in that regard. And the more taxes, fees, etc the gov will impose on businesses the less those people are good to hire.

It's actually depressing.

oops - I meant "The more unemployment the less hirable people after 40 will be. "
