From the "Stuff I just don't get" file...

Via the NYT...
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Wednesday that employers could reduce or eliminate health benefits for retirees when they turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare.

The policy, set forth in a new regulation, allows employers to establish two classes of retirees, with more comprehensive benefits for those under 65 and more limited benefits — or none at all — for those older.
I mean, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission deliberately created two classes of employees? Two classes unequal in their provision of benefits?

I just don't get it.
