3.8 million women affected by the rapid sucession of legislation raising the state pension age from 60 to 66/67 are finding themselves in dire straits . Some policy of restitution needs to be embedded into the manifesto especially since the set back of the judicial review. Women are either running short of savings, having to claim jsa or esa and some have to rely on family members for financial support. When women achieve proper equality in pay and opportunity, then equalisation of the pension age makes sense. This is a hot issue and needs some manifesto pledge to assist this group of women see that Labour are committed to righting this wrong.
