Senior Citizens Create Jobs

A business analyst in Las Vegas suggests that the state should attempt to attract senior citizens to retire, because his report shows that seniors 'create jobs, spend a lot of money and are not a drag on government services.'

Analyst Jeremy Aguero gave his presentation to the Nevada Legislature's Committee on Senior Citizens, Veterans and Adults With Special Needs.

From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:"Our population is getting older," said Aguero, who has done studies for the Legislature, the gaming industry, the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and other groups. "Seniors will choose where to retire and bring a huge amount of capital with them."

"Somebody is going to get the benefit," Aguero added. "If it is not us, it will be somebody else."
