    Stuff like this scares the hell out of me. In the US, I’ve worked at maybe 20+ big offices (between NYC/SF/Chicago) with large sample sizes of people and have seen maybe 3 people over the age of 50 working as a designer.

    I think it's different in the US, where people seem to think differently about retirement. I live in Austria and the social system regulates retirement, unless I set up an additional private retirement plan. But from the moment I started working, I get yearly letters about my contribution to my own pension. And in that system, I will have to work into my late 60s. Most people in my generation do not assume that they'll get a Pension anyway, that includes me.
