Memphis was on the news because employees who retired start collecting their pension then they get hired back by the city. That means they collect their pension and get paid a salary both by the city of memphis. Is dyersburg doubling dipping?

Just because someone is retired dont mean they have to go home and get ready to die!! If your old enough to retire or get your time in and are lucky enough to work at a place that offers a pension, then you can do as you please.. As long as they are working ad earn the pay, it dont matter.. I know several people that work for the city and state and have got their 30 years in and retired to earn their pension and went back to work..happens everywhere

Have you thought about giving back to the community in giving your time, sharing how you work hard to have the nicer things in life? How about volunteer to visit the sick/elderly that have no family that cares. Get involved working with the youth, Lord knows they need guidance in the right direction, then our community will have moral values. That is, if you are a true leader with great character. Retirement does not mean go home and die it means share your wisdom to better the community in which you live and teach children values. Too many adults focus only on work, money, worldly possessions but we all know you can't take it with you, only your good name and the work on earth you have done.

When you retire then you should be retired and let someone else get a job. you can always be a red coat at the hospital

Most cities prohibit a person from working for the city (in a different position) if they have already retired (from the city). Volunteer work would be a good thing for people who want to remain active. There are numerous places a person could help: animal shelters, helping the elderly/poor, the hospitals, non-profits, etc.

Yeah, that really sounds thrilling to me, sitting around all day surrounded by sick folks hacking and coughing. Not to mention the fact that the hospital is a "for profit" corporation and you pay thru the nose if you happen to need their services. It's a public company, take a look at what their CEO makes then tell me about volunteering to work for him for nothing. Heck, you might as well go down to the City and work for them free. At least that might go towards making your taxes a bit cheaper.

I am retired and can't afford to work free, not all retirees wanted to retire, many were forced and have to continue working elsewhere, even though they may be drawing a retirement check.

It could be like social security. You can draw it at age 62. But if you work, you can only make X amount of money. That amount goes up at age 65, and at age 68 it doesn't limit the amount you can make.

I thought retirement meant to sit around and do whatever you want. I dont know very many people that want to do any of the things that you mentioned above.
