A generation of people in the workplace that, when ready to retire, are taken up for review and put in situations that make them want to retire before their time.

The meaning of 'boiled frogs' originated from the song 'Boiled Frogs,' written by Canadian band Alexisonfire.

"The analogy is that if you take a frog and put it in boiling water, it will jump right out immediately, but if you put it in cold water and then you slowly turn the heat up, they'll just eventually fall asleep and die.” -George Pettit
George's parents had turned into boiled frogs because of how difficult it was for them during their last working years before retirement.
