The average American has had seven and a half of these by the time they're 30. What are they?

The average American has had seven and a half jobs by the time they're 30. I had also thought cars.
I don't know how it works in other professions but in the union bakery industry it takes 10 years before you have a guaranteed pension when you finally meet the requirements. I don't think that 401k's can be transferred from one company to another. Does this mean the average American isn't planning on retirement but is counting on Social Security? I think they'll be in for a rude awakening if they are.

I had it all planned out to have my house paid off 6 months before I retired so that I could retire at 50 with no debts or mortgage payment.
Then I moved. Now I've got another 20 years of house payments. :(
It's scary thinking about living on a limited income with no chance of extra overtime income when the cost of living keeps rising so fast.

I was told that most accidents happen within 7 miles of home so I moved 15 miles away! :D
I used to live just east of the Hollywood District in Portland.
