Over 100 million working-age Americans own no retirement accounts whatsoever — including 401(k)s, individual accounts or pensions. The facts and data are clear. Retirement is in peril for most working-class Americans. When all working individuals are considered — not just the minority with retirement accounts — the typical working American has zero, zilch, nothing saved for retirement. An average man paid about $24,000 for the average house in 1971. Today, he pays $371,000. Priced in time, the house cost 6,000 hours in 1971 and 14,269 hours today.
Field services can be a great way to earn some extra money and save more for retirement.
