Give people the option to retire at 60 and give youngsters a chance to work

Welcome to all members, new and old! We're pleased and grateful to have you. Please feel free to post and add members, but remember no commercial ads allowed here. If you post


them, they will be removed. If you do it again, I will remove your name from the group. Same goes for posts which denigrate groups of people who need our compassion not our hate. I'd rather not do that, so please follow these simple rules. Thank you! smile emoticon
The age of retirement is still rising, because people are living longer. Yet where’s the evidence? Income levels have a lot to do with how long people live. Labourers do hard physical work and generally, do not have a life expectancy equal to that of a professional. Every person living in this country should be allowed to make the decision as to what age they retire after 60.
People who retire make way for the younger generation to enter the job market and pay into the system.There will never be full employment! And now youngsters are less able to move into jobs. They are unable to pay into the system and their own retirement.
The government spends billions running departments which are simply there to push people into finding work that isn’t there! Divert the money spent on these huge bureacracies into retirement!
Give the young a chance and allow older people some time to enjoy their retirement before they die. Then everyone will benefit!

A note to everybody: I've been running this page for a while now and I must say that people have generally stayed with the subject most of the time. However, sometimes, we've had posts which really have nothing to do with what we're fighting for and in fact pick on a particular group of people, who are then blamed for everything that is wrong in this country. Let me state this very clearly: we are not a group where you can discuss any old subject you feel like. There are plenty of groups for that! This group is about fighting to retire at 60. If anybody posts anything which in my humble opinion is discriminatory in any way, shape or form, or is what I consider propaganda which draws attention away from what is really going on in this country, I will remove the post. I hope that's clear enough for you. I want you all to stay, but you will need to abide by these rules. Thanks!
