To Senator Leyonhjelm
The Older Women's Network Australia Inc strongly objects to the insulting comments made by you as reported by the Australian newspaper and the ABC:
'Senator Leyonhjelm said Australians should "reinforce the notion" that "when you retire you will only receive the pension if you're poor and it's nothing to be proud of".
Do these comments apply to Politicians and their pensions?
Clearly you have no idea of the billions of dollars in unpaid contributions made to the Australian society predominately older women. Clearly you have n idea that older women were, during their working lives, not entitled to superannuation, who had to leave their jobs in the public sector when they married because 'they were taking a man's job' and should now feel ashamed because of this?
Well shame on you Senator, shame on you
