英会話ブログ その658     Retirement, Do you think about it ? (2)

2015/07/19

Some make it as far as Hawaii and to them this is quite an exotic trip, even though Hawaii is an American state and completely civilized as a tropical resort island.

The Japanese, on the other hand, seem to live and work in order to survive economically.  With the aging population, people here hardly even talk of retiring.

The pension system in Japan is lousy (not good), so most workers have to keep on working to pay bills.  

I see a lot of old guys working in Kanda.  What's your opinion ?                                           (V.C)
