You know, it was primarily inequalities like this that eventually led to the passing of child labor laws in the 20s and 30s.

I wonder if senior labor laws are next?


Speaking of things from the twenties and thirties, how about bringing back the 40 hour work week? That might create a need for more workers!

Those are pretty much the two choices most working Americans have these days.

We know corporations like it that way.

Do you?

Note:

For far too long now, overachievers have been ruining it for everyone else with their warped sense of priorities!

Go home already! Don't your wife and kids miss you yet? Don't you miss them?

Stop spending your life at the office, get a hobby already!

Heed the man in black!

Oh I go out of my way to leave work behind and take care of family. My 12 and 10 yr olds will be that age just one time. Preaching to the choir on this one.

Update....The age group (25-34 year olds) that used to be Peak earners are still flailing while "retirees" still adding to the workforce at the fastest rate. Crazy.

My generation could truly end up being a lost generation. Being unemployed and underemployed at 25-34 is the worst thing that can happen for one's career, since this is when the majority of marketable skills are developed. In ten years, if the economy is better, my age group will be filled with underqualified and unhirable people. Sad.

A good jobs report? Sure, if one is 55 and over. In December the American jobs gerontocracy continued its relentless course, and as the two charts below summarize since Obama's first term, some 2.7 million jobs in the 16-55 year old category have been lost. The "offset": 4 million jobs for Americans between 55 and 69. For all those young people graduating from college (with $150,000 in student loans) who are unable to get a job, here is our advice: tell your parents, and grandparents, to retire already. Oh wait, they can't because Bernanke destroyed their savings. Oops - better luck next time.

I know my dad is still working at 63.

My MIL is still going strong at 61.

My FIL is looking to get back in the programming game at 66 after being retired only a year.

We need interest rates up to get a real recovery.

Not to mention that this 25-34 jobs bust is causing a baby bust.

Which in turn is exacerbating the problem and will continue to for years to come.

1. Tell pops to retire
2. Go knock someone up
3.
4. Profit
