I guess I sent the wrong message. What I mean by real job is; if a retiree wants to go back and work, they can apply for a non pera job, compete in a normal job market and get the job the deserve. The way it is now they retire, then their job is saved for them and when they interview, it's just part of the process the job is aready there. It's just a form of nepitism. It's like if a hunter went hunting at the zoo or if a MLB team played little league. There's no fairness for the non-retirees.<quoted text>
And what kind of real job do you have Mike?
If and when I retire from PERA I don't plan to just settle back in the comfort of a job I didn't theoritically earn to get hired. I'd rather do something else, maybe work for the feds or a private company.
