Retired but rehired (double, tripple dipping)

I think that when a person chooses to retire that they should not be allowed to be rehired. This costs the government money for retirement which is fair, but then the government needs to pay the employee a salary on top of the retirement at the higher salary. This also prevents younger people being hired (at a lower salary) because the slot is still be taken by the person retired. We need to save and embrace youth. Either the person should not retire or come back and volunteer/mentor if the desire is to keep working. We could save money and help young people come into the government and bring fresh ideas and energy.
