    Aside from the impending increase in social security pension, there is also a suggestion for the government to provide employment to seniors particularly to those who are retired employees. From what I heard, the government is considering that suggestion. But instead of jubilation, the seniors have voiced out their doubts on the success of the program simply because we have age discrimination here. What company will hire a senior? The answer is none. And if there is then that hiring would only be for show. But come to think of it, there are many retired people who are still able and willing to work with their qualifications intact. All they need is a break.

    I am also thinking what I would be doing when I retire. It's not good to sit around and count my retirement pay, huh.

    Even if it is voluntary, staying active is important - maybe more important than a "job" ? (when all the needs are met somehow, I don't think it is a good idea nor with good results to become inactive physically or mentally (or spiritually) , as long as there is something that can be done.... )

    The Fed. govt has had for many years a program to re-hire annuitants. Nothing new here. The offer has gone out to former employees who have excelled in job performance during their careers.
