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.

    This honestly sounds like propaganda trying to convince people this is a thing.

    IMO it’s exactly that. They hardly bring up any other external influences on people’s income in the article, just a paragraph or two very deep in the article.

    It insinuates really hard that people have the money to spend but just don’t want to spend, a subtle “killing the messenger” of people being lazy and greedy.
