“We were right in saying to Mr (David) Granger ‘no we cannot agree to this in the budget talks’,” said People’s Progressive Party Civic, Chief Whip,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, Ms Gail Teixeira as she alluded to calls from the parliamentary opposition to increase the retirement age to 65.Teixeira’s disclosure was forthcoming as she responded to questions from the media during the post Cabinet press briefing at Office of the President on Friday.According to her, in the budget talks of April this year, the opposition through the person of Granger, called for the age retirement to be increased, a notion to which the ruling party did not subscribe.She pointed to the fact that the parliamentary record can show that the leader of the parliamentary opposition was of the opinion that “we could just announce that the age of retirement had moved from 55 to 65. We disagreed vehemently and we said that a matter like this had major repercussions and consequences.“The matter would have to be taken to a level of consultation with the unions and public service where the ordinary people can decide whether they want to work to 65 before they retire.”Teixeira speculated on Friday that many people look forward in the public service to retiring and doing a range of other things in their lives with some even opting to stay on and work in the public sector.She pointed to last week’s National Insurance Scheme’s (NIS) consultation which saw stakeholders rejecting a recommendation to increase the retirement age. They said the five-year gap that was suggested for the retirement age may be difficult for low income earners, while pointing out that most public servants retire at 60.Also rejected were recommendations relating to Old Age pension and increased contribution rates which attracted intense discussions.
