Re: “Group of CEOs calls for raising the retirement age” (TNT, 1-17).
The CEOs of Business Roundtable want the retirement age to be raised to 70 for both Social Security and Medicare.
I wonder how many of these CEOs are going to have to rely on either Social Security or Medicare when they get ready to retire?
Also, how many of them have ever had to look for a job after reaching the age of 50 or so? Or how many of them hire people over the age of 50 in their businesses?
I would hope they reconsider this action. I believe there will be many more people who will have to rely on the state or claim early retirement on disability.
