KLUANG: Kemas (Community Development Department) staff here welcomed the government's move to change the retirement age from 58 to 60.
Rahimah Sulaiman, a 58-year-old Kemas employee, said the most important thing that she had gained in her career was her experience, which she would be passing on to her colleagues.
"Senior Kemas teachers can help to guide the newer, inexperienced teachers to ensure that Kemas centres are managed well in the future," she said.
Another Kemas employee, Natrah Umar, 58, said they would continue to do their best until they reached the new retirement age.
Kemas Family Association president Latip Said said there were about 250 Kemas workers throughout the country, nearing the retirement age of 58, who would be working for the department for two more years.
