So 1-in-5 "retirees" being in the labour force and children working at your local fast food restaurant are just a figment of our imagination?

What I am not sure is out of that, how many are working because they want to/bored or because they need the money.  Its probably 50/50 IMO

I think what he is referring to is that Statscan only counts people who are actively looking for work in its counts. If you have a large population of retired folks it tends to drive down the overall unemployment rates as they are not counted as unemployed.
