At the NUS symposium, someone said that older people are "not wanted". They find it difficult to get work or to contribute their knowledge, even if they have experience. Even former parliamentarians and retired civil servants face this difficulty.
Here is my view.
* it is a matter of matching supply and demand
* the older people have knowledge and experience
* many businesses need, but do not know how to access them
* we need to find a new model for this to work
Here is a possible solution:
* set up a portal
* the experienced people can indicate their availablility and charges
* those who need the services can contact them
* agents can help to make the matches
