Q. Surveys show that boomers indeed want to work longer, yet the average retirement age is falling. What's the deal?
A. People aren't really retiring early. They're ending their first careers and taking a break until they figure out what they can do next. There's been a big increase in labor-force participation for people 55 to 69 in the past five years; all other age groups were flat or down.
But there's still a mismatch between what people want and what employers are willing to let them do.
I love that last sentence....I really cant see much reason to work for megacorp/government jobs once you are FI....My current employer really doesnt care about what you want.....It is more about them dictating what they want....
