Not impressed by pension delay

Letter to the editor

Being unable to find part-time work in my field, I have been struggling on the Newstart pittance, and am apparently not disabled enough to qualify for the disability pension.

I was looking forward to getting the old age pension next year, but I have just learned that I now have to wait an extra six months, because I had the misfortune to be born just after July 1, 1952. When it comes to screwing over the disadvantaged members of our society, this mean and tricky government knows no bounds.
