The Federal Liberal Government want to raise the pension age to 70.
This will mean that Australia will have the oldest pension age in the developed world.
How can they expect nurses, bricklayers or teachers to work until they are 70?
Labor created the pension and we have protected it for more than 100 years. We will always ensure Australia’s post-retirement income system is strong and sustainable, giving older Australians the financial support and security, they deserve.
Many Central Victorians have raised their disgust with me at this Government's priorities and have signed our petition to oppose the Liberals' attacks on our older Australians.
Older Australians deserve to be treated better and with respect. Australians should not be made to work until they’re 70 before receiving the Age Pension.
