    work would be available for them -- non-profits are begging for folks to come in and help out, and many of them would appreciate those who have experience in corporate management that can be applied to activities such as organizing fundraisers, writing grant applications, or even meeting with corporate types to get donations. And for many of us in the "sandwich generation", having at least one member of the family retired would allow more time for care of elderly parents or keeping track of teen children. And maybe some of those new retirees would start their own businesses, or learn a new skill, or teach others what they've learned, thus benefitting society as a whole.
