Interesting insight into ageing in Russia

One of my many Google alerts identified this article about the need of Russians to continue working after the retirement age.

Why should Russians be any different to the rest of the world?

I quote - According to Moscow's department of political economy and development, 18 percent of the Russian work force is made up of pensioners. That figure rises to 21 percent in education and 22 percent in health care. About 97 percent of teachers continue working after they could retire.

I am not sure what most people can do with this information unless you are thinking of targeting the Russian market for 50-plus products and services. Dick Stroud
