    Wanted - Young, healthy, unmarried brothers that do not look at pornography. Of course they should not masturbate too, though we do not mention this requirement specifically. And they should be honest about it

    Also, they should be willing to live the rest of their lives in abject poverty when we kick them out of Bethel for being "too old and/or too much of a health cost risk" when they reach their late 40s, and they go out into the world with no marketable skills, no experience in dealing with money, and no savings.

    unless they are snared by vigilant families that seek prime Bully material for their daughters, to bolster the rule of the clan.

    Isn’t that the truth!.. Kicking out older bethelites when they are too old and too expensive to cover with health care - into the world with no money, no education, no marketable skills, no wisdom to deal with everyday life. (Of course, they end up in kingdom halls where local JWs are hit up for money to help them - which is why I’m glad I’M not there.)

    I’m just surprised that something this outrageous hasn’t become more public since it’s been happening for well over a decade!

    You have to be kidding me?!!

    They have the nerve to advertise for new Bethelites, after having kicked to the curb experienced, trustworthy “employees” simply because their healthcare insurance premiums have risen somewhat?

    This is so outrageous it is newsworthy. Any links and/ or recording of this request??

    WOW. How are any of the hundreds of ousted Bethelites going to feel watching that? They thought they were being "reassigned" for the sake of simplification . . . But now it's obvious they're being replaced with cheaper labor. Whatever happened to 'Jehovah will not forget your work and the love you showed for his name'? 🤔

    Just as an FYI, the WTS does not pay health insurance for any of their volunteers in the US.

    They are fully self-insured - 100% of anyone's medical expenses come "out of pocket" for the WTS.

    They almost certainly have negotiated much lower payments with providers than the standard "rack rates" - but still, the prospect of paying for Joe Bethelite's open-heart surgery, or chemotherapy, or liver transplant, or what-have-you, scares them into releasing all but the most essential (or most well-connected) personnel before they hit 55.

    And it's not just preventive, either. They have no qualms about kicking you out when they discover you have a costly disease (I know a couple, sister developed lupus, and it was "see ya, wouldn't want to be ya, don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya".)


    In other words, lupus ends up costing a person with this disease on average more than $20,000 annually.
