The Labor University of Pingtung County, run by the Pingtung County Government, held its 3rd Achievement Exhibition today (9th). Ke Xueqin, who won the "Interdisciplinary Talent Award" received special attention; she is 60 years old and has a doctorate in Japan. Studying and living in Japan for 13 years, she was deeply inspired by the concept that labor equals longevity. She said that the era of senior labor has begun. She once asked herself what she would do next after retirement, so she analyzed the needs of the Taiwanese market and found that there was a shortage. The work is serious, and there is a timber factory at home, and she doesn't know the relevant skills, so she decided to go to Labor University to learn how to drive a crane and a stacker.
