The impending retirement crisis

Pushing the financial constraints of an economy where many will rely on Social Security for the bulk of their income on the backs of a growing young low wage workforce.

from MyBudget360.com:

There is a looming retirement crisis on the horizon. Most Americans are ill prepared for a long-term retirement. Back in the early 1980s, over 60 percent of American workers had access to some sort of pension plan. Today, that number is less than 10 percent. Planning for the future is challenging because it takes discipline, a steady source of income, some luck, and support from a rising market. That doesn’t always happen. That is why today, we have a large problem with older Americans not being able to retire. The latest data shows that most baby boomers will depend on Social Security as their primary source of income. Yet this money needs to come from a healthy and ideally, well paid younger population. That is simply not the case. Many younger Americans are saddled with massive student debt and others are unable to find good paying work. A large portion of profits in this recovery have gone straight to the top to a very small portion of the population. Also, a good portion of gains have come from slashing wages, cutting benefits, and squeezing productivity out of workers. This is how we have a nation where 1 out of 3 Americans have no actual savings. For many, Social Security will be the last barrier between them and being financially destitute.

    Yes,please feel sorry for us old people.

    I just retired this month at the age of 62
    and Social Security will only pay me $1500
    a month.

    My lump sum payment from my 401 K plan
    and pension is only $800,000.

    Even worse, my wife will retire next year
    and only get $1475 Social Security.

    She will only get a $500,000 lump sum
    payout.

    Yes, you youngsters, we old people
    need your help.

    Plaese have mercy on us.
