Save funds for worthier causes

Dear Editor,

Interesting to read the proposal from Victoria and Manukau at the E.F.K.S conference about benefits for 30 years of service.  Those proposing this ridiculous motion should come up with a plan to fund it. 

Otherwise, it should be voted down. 

Long service is great but it doesn’t mean you should get a pension for it. 

Faifeaus already get a 3-month holiday funded by their au lotu every seven years. Many get other benefits as well. 

These faifeaus astound me with their self-interest at times. The taulaga au taumafai should be kept for much more worthier causes than lining the bank accounts of faifeaus. 

P.S. Jeffrey
