Retirement Plan USA: Low Pay, Long Hours, Drop Dead

It's amazing how detached from reality "financial advice" in the MSM can be. Here's an example of a headline:

"Eliminate fears about pension cuts by saving early and often"

You get the same rubbish from Market Place on the weekend.

The truth is for many of us retirement will not be an option. For us, it'll be low pay and long hours till the day we drop. It's a rightwing/libertarian dream come true. That's the reality! Talking about putting something away for people living paycheck-to-paycheck borders a little on 'let them eat cake'.
