Wednesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s a look at Wednesday’s business headlines.

Debt

Magnify Money says nearly half of all Americans expect to retire in debt.

Roughly 46% of all Americans expect to retire with credit card payments or mortgages.

However, debt repayment is even harder on a fixed income and can threaten your retirement security.

Older Americans

The share of Americans coming out of retirement and back into the workforce is increasing.

More than 2.6% of retired workers returned to work in October, the highest since April 2020, according to the Census Bureau.

Older Americans say they want to go back as vaccinations rise and wages go up.

Strikeforce

Strikeforce is a company that has a solution to a problem that’s increased with the use of video meetings.

Co-founder George Wallet says its product, SafeVChat, is secure video conferencing so no more unauthorized people barge in during a conference.

He says this will also protect companies’ sensitive data that goes back and forth during a video chat.

Netflix

Netflix will release a weekly top 10 of shows by total hours viewed, dropping its much-criticized two-minute metric.

The streaming service also said it would release viewership data weekly, such information used to be primarily released during Netflix’s quarterly earnings reports.
