All of you pay taxes and are Citizens of the Country.
Dont you think that pension is a must for all above 65 at least ? (Need not be after 55 like for Govt Employees) like in Australia where everyone gets it. Some who cannot live with their Children can claim it as a Elder care Service (You dont get money, but Care services provided free at such facilities).
People in the Private sector, Informal sector Self employed), Foreign employed etc provide a bigger service to the economy and they are not a burden on Govt. Thus they should be looked after by the Govt when old..Its not acceptable that only some are paid pensions..
Parliament MP's get it just after 5 year Service.. Clearly Private sector is totally discriminated in Sri Lanka.
There are over 5 Million people belong to this category.
IF PEOPLE GET TOGETHER BEFORE THE ELECTION WE CAN WIN DUE RIGHTS.
