The Economy Is Affecting Everyone's Retirement
The stockmarket fall, the large numbers of layoffs, the dimishing values of our 401(k)s and pension plans is causing a lot of aging workers to put off their retirements. Certainly my wife and I have felt that way as have alot of our friends. (Yes we are Baby Boomers).
But I did not realize how widespread the effect was until I saw this headline in today's Wall Street Journal Online:
Lawmakers Pressure NASA to Delay Shuttle's Retirement
I guess it has gotten pretty bad when even the aging space shuttles can't retire.
HOPE YOU AT LEAST SMILED. HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!
