Letter: Rehiring retirees benefits young feds, too

Regarding "Bill to rehire retirees gets qualified support": I think rehiring retirees is a great way to supplement their income and train the younger employees to do their job. The retirees have so much knowledge to give when they leave and you get that by the years served. I hope the state of Maryland follows suit. We have rehired some of our retired employees as contractual personnel to supplement our workforce and it works great for both parties.
