Why does the youth have to take a hit for the fading generations greed and failures?

Republicans which are mostly the fading generations want to raise the retirement age on the youth. Why should they care if won`t affect them? It won`t kick in until generation X and Y. And even if we allow Republicans to raise the retirement age how will a larger worker pool help the youth with technological unemployment creeping up? And don`t forget the lower wages that comes from job competition from a larger worker pool.
