In Singapore, many elderly have been faced with poverty due to the lack of structured and comprehensive retirement plans. Unable to even find minimum wage jobs, many have resorted to an extremely low source of income by selling recyclables. Because of this many senior citizens survive on wages of less than $1000 a month far below the national average of $5,540.
Jamie Lim travels to Singapore's Chinatown to interview the elderly that has been affected by this and study how the recycling industry works.
