Fact: Age Discrimination…um…it’s alive and well. The Government (City, County, State) allows “just-retired” employees to return to their jobs, after two weeks mandatory leave…as having not even left the building…. thus collecting their retirement, and in most cases, SSI, and now the new salary.
If one is really lucky… then, he may be a military retiree as well, thus collecting 3 retirements and a current salary. I guess you call that…triple-dipping.
Those jobs should be filled by those who have not worked for government before; and currently un-employed, yet still qualified. How can our government provide as much as 3 retirements plus a current salary to an individual, while all along, having fully qualified individuals drawing unemployment?
What’s WRONG with our thinking? I guess some would call that….Stinkin-Thinkin. I have a former associate, who retired after selling his own company at age 57… and has applied to the State Government for over 300 jobs…and only got three interviews, and no job offers.
And, if you want to see how your “elected officials” treat themselves….then, simply Google your state’s legislative retirement system. Some draw as much as their legislative salaries after only 8 years of service. If you want to get “really sick” to your stomach…then Google the same information for the Federal Government. There’s no incentive for our Elected Officials to enact “term limits,” as they would be shooting themselves in the foot….and we can’t have that…uh…yeah…right.
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5, we are… warned… You must realize, however, that in the last days difficult times will come. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, and disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unfeeling, uncooperative, slanderous, degenerate, brutal, (and) hateful of what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people.
Then again, in 2 Peter 2:3 …And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
