Traditionally, retiring entails leaving the workforce permanently. However, experts found that the very definition of retirement is also changing between generations.

About 41% of Gen Z and 44% of millennials — those who are currently between 27 and 42 years old — are significantly more likely to want to do some form of paid work during retirement.

This increasing preference for a lifelong income, could perhaps make the act of “retiring” obsolete.

Although younger workers don’t intend to stop working, there is still an effort to beef up their retirement savings.

It’s ok! Don’t ever retire! Just work until you die, preferably not at work, where we’d have to deal with the removal of your corpse.

    If my calculations are correct, my cheeseburger and pizza diet will kill me around the time I want to stop working. That’s my retirement.

      Na, medical care and medicine are better than they’ve ever been. They’ll save you from your heart attack and you’ll spend the next 3 decades paying for heart medication.

        If they save you with meds, why not just try and overdose on those if you really wanna die at that point?

          Why wait when you could just achieve your goals today?

      A better retirement plan would be Costco hot dogs.

      It’s like a version of The Whale where he doesn’t have a daughter and isn’t depressed from his gay lover dying, but just depressed because of general socioeconomic conditions and the overall shitty state of the world.
