Obviously she is capable, otherwise she would be fired. It's called a free market for a reason. Social Security is redundant in today's economy.

He didn't say anything about "Making" them leave the workplace. However if she's capable and obviously qualified more power to her. If she's working because she has to though... that's just sad.

Mark's comment is actually the real reason Social Security came into being - to encourage older workers to leave the workforce and make way for younger men to enter the workplace who did not have jobs.

Learn some history, people.

Yeah, Mark, make them leave the workplace and fill up the already-overcrowded retirement homes instead. Their dignity and emotional health is secondary to some inexperienced young punk needing a job. /sarcastic
