Retire? What's that?
The country is in trouble, in very deep trouble. Most people can not retire because they do not have a company pension plan and/or do not make enough money to save for retirement. Yet, the politicians, those people who work for us have bloated paycheques and receive a golden handshake upon retirement. They make more money when they retire after woking only a few years than most people make after working a lifetime..
If the politicians truly do care about the population, then they will take a pay cut and a cut in their retirement pensions so that the government can then put that money toward helping those in need.
If people can afford to retire, then they will and that will open jobs for the young people who are unemployed and looking for work.
But, we know well enough to know that politicians are self righteous and self serving, thus they will never take a pay cut.
So, in the meantime the population (those who built this country and keep it running) will continue to suffer while those who work in multi million dollar offices whom we hired will continue to get paid travel, paid meals, bloated paycheques, golden handshakes and huge pensions.
It is unfair to the hard working people and very dangerous to the country.
