    The figures are invalid. They don’t factor in the the people who fell off their unemployment benefits. These people are facing discrimination of age,
    length of time out of work, no degrees and other issues. The economy will continue to suffer with so many people un or under employed. Taking early retirement comes with big penalties from SS and shortened retirement plan deposits. Try living on 65% of what you planed on having @ retirement.
