#BackTo60 #FullRestitution
1. 1st they came for #50sWomen as they:
💥initially added 5 yrs to our State Pension Age whilst deliberately not telling us
💥took no notice of the lifetime of inequality suffered by #50sWomen
💥or that their private pensions are a fraction of men's
💥& auto-enrolment discriminates against women
💥ignored their own pensions committee report that told them exactly those things
💥& the unpaid caring many women carry out
💥then accelerated the rise in SPA by several years
💥& added another year to the SPA for women & men
💥reneged on a promise to give women auto-credits that 9.8 million men had been given over 35 years
💥increased the qualifying years to 35
💥reduced widows' pensions especially for those on the New State Pension
💥raised the age at which a couple could get pension credit
💥published disrespectful adverts that failed miserably to inform anyone
💥told us we had to earn pensions in our own right, but had no access to benefits in own right
💥& had to be "kept" by partners
💥told women in their 60s to sign on for JSA & apply for apprenticeships
💥ignored the fact that 86% of cost of austerity had fallen on women
💥sent over 60s out to work in pandemic with many women in front-line roles
💥ignored the disproportionate impact of #COVID19 on women's jobs
💥threatened to remove triple lock on worst pensions in OECD
Next they are coming for YOUR pension!
Is it any wonder that #50sWomen feel discriminated against? Nothing other than #FullRestitution will suffice for this appalling injustice
