Complete 8 pages APA formatted article: Features of Retirement in the United States. During the Stone Age times, no one was unemployed. the employment rate was 100%. Back in history when someone became too old to perform any task, the best option he could do was to move in with his kids. Centuries passed and the population was increasing, which is directly proportional to the population of old people. During the medieval period, the number of old people was substantial and thus critical. The old people had wealth that the young desired to inherit, though some were inpatient and cases of patricide started becoming rampant. The fact the old people were clinging on their wealth was a threat to the economic and social fabric of colonial America.

The old people were not productive and something had to be done urgently. During the Industrial revolution in there was also an upsurge in the level of unemployment, this was due to the ones that refused to retire. During the Great Depression, the situation was even worse, and this made retirement as the only and the better option.
