Tsinghua University Professor Implores Delaying the Collecting of Pensions for 15 Years: First Do Volunteer Work After Retiring

According to a news report by Shanghai News General Channel, one of the main participants in the Tsinghua University Pension System Reform Scheme and director of the Tsinghua University Employment and Social Insurance Research Center, Yang Yansui, recently raised a suggestion that the age of retirement not be changed, remaining at 50 as before, but that the age for collecting pension payments be postponed to 65. This comment of hers incited huge controversy. Yang Yansui has now suggested that after the age [for eligibility to receive pension payments] is postponed, the form of employment should also be divided into stages.

Reporter: if someone retires at the age of 50 and only receive their pension at the age of 65, how does he/she spend the 15 years in between?

Yang Yansui, professor of Public Administration at Tsinghua University: ”I think we are currently writing a policy suggestion on this, to have them come out of manufacturing enterprises and with training, have them participate in community service near their homes. Male between the age of 50 to 65 can work as gardeners or gardening volunteers at some nursing homes, whereas females between the age of 50 to 65 can cook, wash clothes, or weave for the elderly. How nice that would be!”

Tsinghua University professor: Postponing the receiving of pension money doesn’t mean postponing the retirement age

The “Tsinghua Scheme” suggests starting in 2015 and gradually pushing back the age for receiving pension payments starting until 2013 when the pension-receiving age has been pushed back to 65, but this doesn’t mean postponing the retirement age. Yang Yansui explained that the pension-receiving age and retirement age are not the same thing but rather two concepts. “Although it was the same in the past, treated as the same, but with the aging of society, this problem has separated.”

Professor Yang gave an example that the average life expectancy of Americans is 78.9 years old and the pension-receiving age is 65 years old. But before collecting your pensions, you can arrange to withdraw from the labor market ahead of time.

What this Tsinghua professor means is having people under nongovernmental employment become baby-sitters and sanitation workers to specifically service those who work in governmental organizations. This suggestion is very good, and there are 3 huge benefits: 1. Postponing retirement 15 years means most of us common people won’t have the chance to collect retirement pensions, and the pension we’ve paid into can all go towards supporting the country, fully reflecting our selfless noble character and integrity. 2. It solves the common people’s living issues, and makes everyone healthy (those who are incapable of being baby-sitters and cleaners can just die off). 3. Providing a huge number of baby-sitters and cleaners for those who work in the governmental organizations greatly improves their living standards. It’s simply killing three birds with one stone. Well played, so well played!

No wonder people call you beasts,
you’re indeed completely without conscience,
a mouth filled with poison and cruelty,
your heart that of a beast.

You feast and dress all fine,
While the people are in distress.
Their life-long savings are food for the powerful,
But when did the powerful ever give back?

I see many comments saying it should start with her [she should volunteer to abide by this scheme]. Seems many people don’t know that the salaries and pensions of Tsinghua University professors are all paid by the Treasury, and they don’t receive money from the social security [fund] after retirement, which is to say that whenever she retires is whenever she starts receiving her pension from the Treasury. Postponing the [age when one begins] collecting their pension doesn’t affect her at at all. So naturally, it can’t start with her. A bunch of people who don’t collect pensions but are supported in their old age by the government making pension policies for others is absolutely cold-blooded.

梁发芾 [历史时政作家]:

When this professor herself retires, she’ll collect retirement pay from the Treasury that is about as much as what she’s getting while employed, yet she wants the common people to be volunteer workers. This person’s intention is so wicked!

Then let’s ask Yang Yansui to cook, wash clothes, and do a little weaving without getting any pension. How nice that would be!

I think it can be determined by professions, those who work in private enterprises can retire at the age of 50, and start to receive pensions right away; and civil servants and professors can retire at the age of 65, and start to receive pensions when they are 85 years old.

The clamor to postpone the retirement age is getting louder, a raging fire burns in my heart;
I’m already a laid-off worker part of a vulnerable social group, nearing 50 years old where it is hard to find a job;
When private enterprises see that I’m almost 50, they’ll turn me away without a second word;
I have to beg half a day to get hired, and I have to do all the heavy and dirty work;
My salary is meager and the price of goods keep rising, I can’t make ends meet and my eyes filled with tears;
Above me is an old mother I must care for, and below me is my son’s shockingly high school tuition;
The financial strain is like a mountain, day and night I long for my retirement pension;
To postpone officials’ retirement age, I’ve nothing to say as it’s not my business;
But if it’s about postponing the retirement age for laid-off workers, I’m 100% against it;
I’m already in deep, how can I make it to sixty-five?
No matter how the scheme changes, I’ll vote against it if my benefit is touched!
I’ll reason for survival, dare they to let me starve?


It not strange at all that Tsinghua has this kind of stupid cunt.

I really don’t want to swear, but I just can’t stand it. 4 words, you are a stupid cunt!

Has this stupid cunt not passed menopause yet? Lock her up in a nut house for 15 years, and when she comes out, she can collect her pension without having to wash clothes.

Suggest having this 2B professor be the first to go wash clothes, canceling all of her welfare/social security benefits, medical benefits, insurance benefit, and retirement pension.

Tsinghua University truly has raised a bunch of garbage professors.

This Tsinghua professor sure knows how to focus attention on one thing while ignoring the larger picture. Yes, people in foreign countries do receive their pensions at the ages of 65 or 67, but they can apply to receive all of their retirement pay when they are unemployed for more than 6 months. When they have spent all of their retirement pay, they can apply for unemployment relief, and when they get old, they can receive elderly pensions.

Developed countries all have democracy, why don’t you learn from that?
Workers in developed countries have their own unions, why don’t you learn from that?
Developed countries allow protests and demonstrations without exception, why don’t you learn from that?
In developed countries, everybody gets the vote, why don’t you learn from that?
In developed countries, the assets of civil servants are made public, why don’t you learn from that?
Students in developed countries have school buses, and lunches are free, why don’t you learn from that?
In developed countries, professors like you would’ve gotten lost [been fired] long ago, why don’t you get lost as well?

Grass mud horse! But [of all these things] you’ve learned postponing retirement!

When it comes to the government policies of foreign countries, any parts that are unfavorable to the people are uniformly adopted [by our government], saying it is “following international convention”; Any parts that are favorable to the people are uniformly rejected [by our government], saying it is “taking the path of Chinese characteristics”. So, in the past, we learned English to get to know about the world, and now we learn English to get to know about China.

2B professor, why don’t you first go become a baby-sitter and demonstrate…

Fuck your mother, it’d be better if went and became a man whore.

What do you think of Yang Yansui’s proposal? Should the age of eligibility for collecting pension benefits be extended from 50 to 65?
