News from Council of the Ageing

The Council of the Ageing news page is a central place to pick up on items of interest to seniors and their care-givers.
The current news item from the SMH talks about:
"more seniors live below the poverty threshold in Australia (defined as half the median household income) than in all other OECD nations except for Korea, Mexico and Ireland".
See also their item about the 'Experience Works' report, commissioned by National Seniors Australia. It found that many older employees are worse off when it comes to getting a job in Australia, compared to elsewhere.
