24. But there are no JOBS, dammit!
I've worked at a professional level in 5 count'm 5 different uni-degree-required fields. I'm only 62, and I'm on social security because I can't find work in any of the five. And it's not just the crap economy, I spent most of the 'boom '90s' on the shelf as well because of being over 50.

So don't clasp your hands to your bosom in ecstacy because Dean talks about raising the damned retirement age. Unless he can produce real jobs--not PhDs bagging groceries or flipping burgers--for everyone who wants one no matter their age, he's nothing but another betrayer of American workers.
