Some millennials may never get to experience the joys of playing bocce and telling kids to get off their lawn, as 12 percent of Americans between the ages of 20 and 34 expect to work until they die.
A study, released on Tuesday by workforce solutions company Manpower Group and conducted by surveyor Reputation Leaders, found that 12 percent of millennials around the world expect never to retire. In Japan, a whopping 37 percent said they think they’ll work until they reach the grave, compared to 18 percent in China, 12 percent in the United States and the United Kingdom, and just 3 percent in Spain. The study polled 19,000 working millennials across 25 countries. Earlier this year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics determined that 18.9 percent of Americans over the age of 65 were still working, the highest rate since Medicare was introduced
