Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, the Government has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early). Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance). Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the Government. Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much **** (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Government has always prided its self on the amount of **** it gives our citizens. Should you feel that you do not receive enough ****, please bring this to the attention of your Local Representative, who has been trained to give you all the **** you can handle. Sincerely, The Senate committee on Economic Value of Individual Lives (E.V.I.L.)
You can see the economy at work everywhere throughout Panama -- construction, traffic congestion, parking problems, seemingly unending residential development and shopping mall projects, and lots of customers in the busy stores. This topic needs to be read in conjunction with other topics, such as automobile sales in Panama (see http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/3250-panama-vehicle-sales-continue-climb), Tocumen Airport traffic and revenue (see http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/4195-tocumen-airport-traffic-and-revenue-increasing-and-expansion-plans), the Canal, tourism, the trade war with Colombia, etc., etc. http://www.reuters.com/article/panama-economy-idUSL1N1EB1RP
