Re: Should we lower the Pension Age?
I'm with you there Phil. I'm 65, unemployed and having to claim UC instead of being eligible to receive my state pension. Just like Phil I've spent my working "career" from February 1973 in low paid/minimum wage dead end soul destroying jobs. I'm now expected to be actively searching for work instead of enjoying what time I may have left on this earth.
But here's the point - I don't want to work anymore, I'm not in the greatest health (both physical and mental), and I certainly don't want to end up in yet another low paid scum job. Raising the pension age was yet another underhand policy introduced by this government.
There were times when I looked back
And I am haunted by my youth
