This is probably part of the problem. People seem to think they are entitled to retire at 62 or 65. That was never part of the american dream. At least I have n't read that any where. We live in some kind of enlightened generation.
Amen, brother. And seeing those people on steam grates won't bother me so much. But there are those who were promised pensions, bennies, at a time when that was the norm....that have been caught in the transition. Many of them are greeters at walmart for their kibble. Those folks may have been duped, but they weren't freeloaders. Those are the ones that I'm troubled with.
