National Association of Working Seniors

In its continual effort to provide information on discounts for seniors, SeniorDiscounts has partnered with the National Association for Working Seniors (NAWS). Through this partnership, SeniorDiscounts hopes to expand the number of discounts available on its web site and to its members and to reach a larger number of seniors who can benefit from money saving discounts and deals.

Many businesses are reaching out to working seniors, and this new alliance will provide a direct link between working seniors and those businesses that currently offer discounts or would like to offer discounts to this demographic. Working American Seniors are a great asset to this country and SeniorDiscounts looks forward to introducing our complete listing of national discounts to NAWS members.

The National Association of Working Seniors (NAWS) is dedicated to addressing the needs and interests of working people age 50 and older.

Through information and education, advocacy and service, NAWS' stated purpose is to enhance the quality of life for all senior workers by promoting independence, dignity and purpose. NAWS believes that the social security system will not provide adequate retirement income for everyone and that many in the senior age group will want to continue working in their current occupations or reenter the work force in a new career. NAWS believes that the continuation of seniors in the work force will become the best way to address the projected worker shortage beginning in 2010.

The NAWS vision is to excel as a dynamic presence in every community by shaping and enriching the experiences of its working senior members. NAWS focuses its efforts and resources to help its members understand their own strengths and interests and to find career options that meet their needs. It also helps employers understand the benefits of hiring or retaining senior workers.
NAWS also advocates for its members at the state and federal level and keeps its members informed on issues that impact their lives as working seniors.

Luxor, Egypt
Construction of the Aswan Dam has caused salt to build up in the soil around the temples, eroding their ancient foundations and filling many tombs with water.
Babylon, Iraq
The largest ancient settlement in Mesopotamia has been damaged and contaminated. Hussein installed a giant self-portrait there and U.S. troops built trenches and crushed ancient roads.
Coral Triangle, Indonesia
Home to one of the most diverse collections of marine life in the world. This ecosystem faces a growing threat from over fishing as well as destructive fishing, in which explosives or poisons are used to kill the fish, and also permanently destroying their habitat.
Machu Picchu, Peru
The ancient Inca city is in danger of becoming a victim of its own popularity. Development near the site is exacerbating the problem of landslides, which threaten to dislodge Machu Picchu from its alpine perch.
Maldives
A nation of 12,000 islands that contain some of the richest marine life in the world is at risk from rising sea levels caused by global warming. The 2004 tsunami, which devastated the country’s infrastructure, has already erased some tiny atolls.
Venice, Italy
The city has been sinking at a rate of more than one centimeter a century. Industry workers pumping groundwater from below the city and huge tidal wakes left by freighters and ships have added to the rising water.
Great Wall, China
Today nearly two thirds of the 6,352 km wall has been destroyed by erosion, crass commercialism and unchecked development.
