    Thomas also said the system might take into account the need of blue-collar workers to retire younger than office workers.

    Translation=workers who retire younger take more out of the system than those who retire later.  So blue collar workers cost the system more and Thomas is suggesting that their benefits be decreased since they draw them longer.

    Blue Collar workers include:
    *police
    *firefighters
    *construction trades
    *factory workers

    This is a veiled assault on these folks.  We need to hammer on it in addition to the attacks on benefits paid to women.
