Two Thirds Of Americans Aged 45-60 Plan To Delay Retirement

Two Thirds Of Americans Aged 45-60 Plan To Delay Retirement

MRRetirementZero Hedge – With today’s jobs number due out shortly, it is worth pointing out some of the key trends that we have observed in the underlying data stripped of month-to-month seasonal variance, which expose the “quality” side of the US non-recovery, instead of the far more manageable “quantity” side. First and foremost, as we showed over two years ago, and as the mainstream is gradually picking up, the US labor force is increasingly transitioning to one of part-time, and temp workers, which has key implications for wages, worker leverage, and overall job prospects, all of which logically are negative. But perhaps an even more disturbing trends is the conversion of America into a gerontocratic worker society, where the bulk of jobs are handed out to those 55 and over, which puts all young workers, not to mention college graduates, at a major disadvantage relative to far more experienced older workers, who are willing to work for less as they scramble to compensate for retirement shortfalls, and which prevents the natural rotation of the US labor force from older to younger.

And as the WSJ today reports, there is zero hope that this trend will change in the near of far future, as nearly two-thirds of Americans between the ages of 45 and 60 say they plan to delay retirement, according to a report to be released Friday by the Conference Board. This compares to 42% of respondents expecting to put off retirement just two years earlier.
