My old man was still doing hard physical labour in his 70sI've seen plenty of guys in their 70s still running about on their feet all day and basically being too old for this shit
They're almost always American, have to either supplement their pension or plain don't have one, they all wished they could have retired years ago, and the only reason they can still do the job is that they had to move from the more physical aspects to the more organisational aspects meaning that instead of having to put shit together themselves they co-ordinate other people doing it instead.Ok, so now I don't know what point you're making. You know lads who are still doing physical labour in their 70s, even though they are are eligible for pensions? And then you're worried about how physical workers are going to manage to work until they're 68?
some of them are a few stamps short so only doing it for pension contributions so they can finally get enough stamps to draw a pensionMy old man was still doing hard physical labour in his 70s

Breaks my heart to see ol' dears and ol' lads in the supermarket bagging groceries and whatnot, cos they still need the income
Lads, even if we lived in social-democratic utopia we would have to deal with the reduced workers-per-pensioner ratio somehow. Can you honestly not see that? It's either raise the pension age or reduce the pension (or raise taxes). Even the Swedes have raised their pension age. It's not something FG thought up on their own out of maliceWhy make it even worse for them?
