In a plan to counter the nation’s ageing population and future pension problems, a governmental advisory panel has hit upon an ingenious solution. Have people work longer, thus delaying their pension claims.
The panel called for Japan to make it possible for people to work until they are 75 by the year 2030. And in a gesture of benevolence, a governmental subcommittee also recommended creating a society in which people can maintain good health until the age of about 80.
Giving future salary men seniors a measly 5 years on average to really enjoy their retirement. That’s big of the government.
