Working Retirement The Plan For Many Seniors

DETROIT (WWJ) – The AARP says a new survey shows that many people in the 50- plus age range plan to continue working past retirement age.

AARP Michigan Spokesman Mark Hornbeck spoke with WWJ to explain why: “The main reasons that people want to continue to work is the health care coverage, there’s that health care issue coming back again, and just because they enjoy working, they enjoy getting out of the house,” says Hornbeck.

The survey was conducted among more than 400 Michigan residents, age 50 or older.

Those surveyed were also fine with raising state revenue to pay for programs and services. That includes raising taxes on households earning more than 250,000 dollars a year.

    AARP is nothing but a left wing media organization supporting entitlements and maing themselves rich at the same time. I cancelled months ago and will never rejoin this corrupt biased orgainization.
