  1. Frydenberg and the over 65 workers.
    Allan, Tasmania.
    So the Federal treasurer wants to see over 65 year olds working more! At 63 years old I have just gone back doing some volunteer work after my health was severely impacted 2 years ago, by two Not for Profits approved by Centrelink for volunteers. Quite frankly he and all his bully politician mates should have a long hard look at themselves.
    I worked hard for decades, harvesting fruit and vegetables on contract, building roads, constructing pits, operating heavy equipment, laying sewer pipelines, handling other people live sewerage to clear pipes etc. I have had enough. My body is stuffed and they just don’t bloody well care.
    My response to Frydenberg is…. you have no dammed idea what you are talking about… the jobs are not there for us older people, we suffer with age discrimination when applying for work and we are tired or sore. You get out there and do some real work in the REAL WORLD!
