    I’m not sure I believe those figures. Average can sometimes be misleading. Let’s see it for the median.

    I’m 60, self employed and I employ a few others.

    My workers aged 50+, and I, turn up 15 minutes before starting time, showered, shaved, properly dressed for work, having eaten breakfast, no hangover, no injuries from bar fights, ready to work. We don’t leave early, sneak out for breaks, play a boom-box loud, or at all. We can’t work super-hard but we work steadily through the day.

    The younger guys? Not so much. Do I hire young guys when I can hire an old guy? Not so much.

    Don’t trust anyone under 50.
