Posted this over @ the Retire Early Liberal Edition board. Man talk about a knee jerk reaction.

The NPR link showed that the number on disability had doubled in 20 years.

Obviously this result is generated by a combination of poor national economy & demographics.

As Art experienced & has pointed out; many in physical demanding jobs end up losing their jobs; and many of those end up on disability.
