The article contends that the wave of retirements is upon us with an increasing number of Federal employees retiring in the period 2002-2006: from 30,000 to 45,000 annually. The peak is supposed to be 2008-2010 with 60,000 employees filing for retirement each of those three years.

The Federal Times also had an article this week that discussed a Federal initiative to recruit new, young workers:
