Hire the Over 50 Crowd and Males

Okay here's an idea. Forget about paying for the contraceptives for those brash, "busy",child-bearing years, whiny 50 and under, female crowd.

Hire the workplace experienced, life-experienced, in-need-of-employment over 50 crowd. We are, after all, the ones that need our social security paid for. We might need more time off due to arthritis and aches and pains, but at least the medication for those discomforts aren't against the consciences of businesses.

Males young and old would be a good choice, too. Haven't heard them whining about having to pay for "birth" control.

Well, there’s a good reason men don’t whine about birth control. We don’t get pregnant! *ducks*

The other alternative is to hire subcontractors. Anyone can be an LLC

I agree, no business at this time in history should be interviewing or hiring anybody under 40 that went to a Public School. They got Obama to help them through their life, they dont need any greedy business owner to hold them down.

Many customer service jobs benefit from a woman’s kinder, gentler, empathetic approach. Fortunately, there are thousands of them in the Philippines that have no crusading agenda, and value a decent job with an American company over free rubbers.

The hundreds of thousands of government employees retiring at 50 or 55 years old, on their lottery style tax paid pensions, find this quite amusing.

Just don’t hire liberals if you can help it.

They can get a job working for the gov’t.

How many gov employees actually retire that early? I’ve never personally known one who retired before 65.

My Pilippina virtual assistant speaks perfect English, and has the voice of an angel.

IIRC, we are all required to have insurance that covers reproduction, including birth.

And women over a certain age don’t need contraception, either.

Some defense company employees were in a very generous plan if they hired in around 1979 or so (maybe somewhat later, depends on the company).
They could retire at 55 years old if their age plus years of service totalled 75.
They would take money over a period of five years, often making more than what they were when working.
But it only lasted five years; they’d have to park the funds someplace that would allow them to live off of it when they reached 60 and couldnt get social security at 62 or 65.
I know personally someone in that situation.

You live in cave?

Don't get out much?

This is no secret and hasn't been for years now...Ya want me to start listing the articles, many of which have been posted right here.

In fact, here is a recent article...There are hundreds of these types of articles.

Public Employee: Retire at 57, get pension of $94,000 a year

This government school administrator was making $175,649 a year and will get a government tax paid pension of about $100,000 per year for life.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2963348/posts

There are sources and articles all over the net about firemen, cops or city council members making 150,000 per year, and are given tax paid retirement pensions 80K to $150,000 per year. Many of these people retire in their 50s Where ya been? Feel free to look up these endless stores.

In fact, I know a cop who retired at 50, and now gets $5,000 a month for life not to mention his tax paid top shelf medical insurance for not only him, but his wife too. His wife spends all this tax money as fast as she can, and complains it's not enough....yuk yuk.

In fact, it's no secret, government employees at every level and their unions are financially gang raping the American private sector...I guess you're the only one that missed this....

You need to reboot and update yourself.

“.....couldnt get social security at 62 or 65”

Should be

“....couldn’t get social security until 62 or 65”

I thought that’s what I was saying. Women over 50 (some later) don’t need contraception, so it follows that they wouldn’t need insurance for reproduction.

Good idea. I recently refused to hire a designated protected minority group to do yard work. I’d rather do it myself than pay them twice — once to earn the money and pay taxes into the system, and then to pay them. And I pay them again with additional taxes on all my income to cover all the free crap they get. F ‘em.

I don’t doubt it. I was just wondering about the statistics.

I know many, soon to include being married to one. It all depends on the retirement system they’re on. Here in AZ government and almost government employees (my wife works for a community collect that has bought in) get to be in the ASRS system, it’s a point system, earn points every year, the higher your points (to a level) when you retire the higher percentage of your salary you get. The important part there being to a level, 80 points is the magic number in ASRS, when you get more your percentage actually starts to DROP. You get to 80 points generally in 25 to 30 years depending on a lot of stuff. So if you get into the system early and stay retiring at 50 is not only a cinch it becomes NECESSARY otherwise you’re costing yourself money. A lot of people at the community college where she works “retire” and then take non-benefit versions of their old job (so they stop getting points). Others just really retire, all depends on how much of a workaholic they are.

Really? I thought Boomers were a huge voting block. Everyone keeps mentioning how they are going to be so difficult to support in their dodderage.
