Same survey, but different headlines.
I thought I heard over TV news that two-thirds of those surveyed are NOT willing to work beyond 65 years old.
Then, in printed and online news today, the headlines are “Baby boomers are not ready to call it a day” (BT) and “Survey shows 3 in 10 expect to retire at age 65 or older” (channelnewsasia.com).
To me, 3 in 10 is a minority. If you score 3 marks out of 10, you get an F grade.
Since when do people come to conclusions or write headlines based on minority’s views?
You would say “PAP won with 66.6% votes” and not “Election shows 3 in 10 voted for Opposition”.
Or would you?
It’s only when I saw the actual survey report that I realized maybe the reporters are merely parroting the report summary.
But you as the discerning reader, refer to Table 2-2-1 on page 47 of the report, and draw your own conclusions.
It’s my opinion that nobody in his right mind would want to work forever. For one, I would want to retire as early as possible and do things that I really enjoy.
What about you?
