(5) Boomers still working . So again we ask: What’s going on? The answer may be that many Baby Boomers aren’t retiring. Many of them are likely making good salaries, but their pay has flattened in recent years. The Atlanta Fed’s Wage Growth Tracker (WGT) shows that the 12-month moving average of median wage growth for prime aged workers (aged 25 to 54 years old) was % as of February 2018. Meantime, the comparable figure for those 55 and over was just % ( Fig. 9 ). Also significant is that this metric shows the median wage of 16- to 24-year-old workers was % during February 2018, as compared to % during March 2014. The bottom line is that wages are going up, just not much for working, highly paid (maybe overpaid) Baby Boomers!
For Series 4, Sir Killalot returned with a larger crushing claw, although still referred to as the 'Jaws of Life' by Jonathan Pearce. As the leader, Sir Killalot was often the robot that roboteers took their grievances out on. One such instance was Roger Plant's Wheely Big Cheese . The Big Cheese had been "grilled" by Killalot over the flame pit in a previous series, and Plant and his team were out for revenge from the start. However, despite the incredible power of Wheely Big Cheese's flipper, they were unable to lift Killalot. Many a roboteer would boast that they could flip Sir Killalot, but in the show's history, no-one ever achieved this. As a result of this, Sir Killalot was the only house robot in the show's history that was never flipped.
