Working longer

The minimum age for early social security payments is going up. Some argue that since the average life expectancy has increased, people should work longer. We are told that we are not aging as fast. But where are we older workers supposed to find jobs that pay a decent wage? Congress helps employers continue to discrimate against older workers by making big raises in number of H1-B visa issued to high-tech foreigners. If we are not aging as fast, then there is no reason to help businesses discriminate against us.
