Let’s be more financially responsible and be less reliant on our government

I EMPHATHISE with ‘Daif Pensioner’ who wrote the letter ‘Increase in monthly allowance for old-age pensioners could go a long way’, which was published in the Borneo Bulletin’s Opinion page on November 1, 2017.

It is only natural for a parent or grandparent to be concerned of the welfare of their children and grandchildren.

However, asking for the government to provide more is not the solution.

We should instead encourage our young ones to work and earn for a living.

One does not need a fancy high pay job but rather a job that brings financial stability to the family.

Let the young ones learn, work hard and understand the value of money while the pensioners should enjoy the retirement life without any financial burden.
