It’s becoming harder to enjoy your retirement in Australia. Our seniors have worked hard their entire lives and it’s not okay to be told that you need to get by with less now, for no reason other than to improve a budget bottom line.
Malcolm Turnbull and his razor gang of ministers want to take away so much from our seniors by:
Cutting the Energy Supplement which many pensioners rely on – axing payments of $365 per year from single pensioners;
Reducing how much they’re entitled to each week even though the cost of living continues to skyrocket; and
Failing to fix mobile blackspots which can leave our senior citizens without access to a working phone, when that can mean life or death.
These heartless attacks on pensioners will leave hundreds of thousands of Australians worse off and my staff and I have been listening to your complaints. I will be fighting with Labor for pensioners’ rights in Australia, in the face of the Turnbull government’s all-out offensive on support that was once a given. With the LNP in charge, your rights are no longer safe and hang in the balance with every budget handed down.
