Anecdotes in Support of Data

Zero Hedge has a couple of graphs posted that tell the employment story of my family. (H/T, Instapundit) My son, who just turned 25 on Thursday, had a great deal of difficulty entering the workforce, and, sure enough, the first graph shows that the number of workers in the 25 to 54 year old group has fallen back to 1997 levels.

I turn 65 on New Year’s Eve, and given the current state of things, I’m not planning to retire until the end of 2020. The second graph show that we geezers are hanging on to our jobs longer.

That’s how that hopey-changey stuff is working for us.
