  •  How Many 79 Year Old Ditch Diggers Are There? (0+ / 0-)

    I don't see how many people could realistically survive with an increased retirement age. In particular I think of people who do physical labor as part of their jobs and also even older office workers have a hard time getting hired when they're way younger than 70, let alone 75+. You'd have people who are in this Netherworld of not being able to get support while not being able to work.
