As you well know, I was in Singapore last weekend, that's my 3rd time to be there. It is noticeable that in fast food centers and even in the airport, old people are doing the dirty work. The young busboys who get the food trays and wipe the table are now replaced by old men and women. Even the porters in the airport are aged people. According to a taxi driver, who sounded intellectual, Singapore doesn't want to take care of the old people so they give them jobs in order for them to take care of themselves. Unlike in some countries where the retirees have nothing to do, the senior citizens there are encouraged to be productive.
