OAK RIDGE: One-day-a-week jobs (for retirees) at Y-12. “Retiring workers at the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant will now have the option of working one day a week under a new program called PReP (Post Retirement Program). . . . B&W, the government’s managing contractor at Y-12, said the idea is to allow employees to transition into the retirement while they share their decades of experience with a new generation of workers. The program will help ensure that the Oak Ridge plant retains the critical skills necessary for the national security missions, the contractor said.” This seems like a good idea for all sorts of settings.
