An elderly train station worker has sparked a divisive debate after it was revealed that she’s never taken a sick day in fifty years on the job.
Vesela Grujoska, 80, is a hard worker from Sydney, Australia, who spent the last five decades working at Sydney’s Central Station as a cleaner.
Despite her age and astounding work history, Vesela admitted she loves her “dream job” and has no plans to retire any time soon.
According to the reports, the lady landed the job shortly after migrating from North Macedonia to Australia with her family back in 1970. She has since remained on the job while raising two kids of her own in her private life.
Vesela’s story began circulating the internet after being shared by SBS News’ Instagram account.
While plenty of people have since applauded the woman for her strong work ethic, others slammed her devotion to the job saying people shouldn’t “work til they drop dead.”
“I’ve also seen a lot of media trying to normalize this lately. I hope everyone gets the chance to rest and enjoy their last years in dignity and comfort,” someone wrote.
“People should work to live and not live to work. Breaks my heart seeing her work this hard instead of enjoying her last chapter of life,” another said.
Many viewers, however, rallied to support the old lady saying there was nothing wrong with loving your job and choosing not to retire.
“Younger generations are lazy and entitled. They will never understand the dedication to work that some of us have,” someone argued.
“I’m 71 and I could retire any time. But I choose to work because I like my job and it lets me socialize with people rather than be stuck inside the house all day,” another explained.
