This is a tough crowd on here. Not much empathy at all. But life happens.
The everyday folks that make 30k to 50k with gaps in employment will not save enough for retirement. But they will get by.
Do you really want to see a retirement savings movie about a UAW worker making $15hr in the right to work states?
Or a guy at Walmart making $13hr and paying for his own health insurance?
There are millions of people in this demographic and they are everyday working folk.
They are busy just keeping the lights on and putting food on the table.
I will get flamed now because I guess am showing too much empathy.
Yes, some working folks will be able to save if life cooperates. But most working folks not so much.
