“退休” means “retirement,” “预备” means “preparing for,” and “员” means “a person.” This term refers to a group of Chinese who are still young or middle-aged but often dream of an early retirement when they can lead a leisurely life on their pension and stop worrying about work and life’s all types of pressures.
