Earth to baby boomers, come in baby boomers

Shhhhh no one tell them they're easily replaceable, too.
By 2018, the U.S. is expected to face a dramatic shortage of workers as baby boomers retire, the survey said.

“A labor shortage of this magnitude could have a significant impact on our economy and on the quality of life in our communities,” said co-author Barry Bluestone, director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University.

Yeah, your dream come true, bud. But they're NEVER going to retire bec. they won't be able to afford to retire! Retirement will become something people USED to do.

I guess we will just have to keep on working or open the borders.

Yeah, I don't think they're gonna retire either. So many seem to really like work. As though their self-justification is working.
