Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and working longer

The Treasurer’s announcement this week that men and women should push on longer and later in their years in jobs  – up to 65 and in some cases 70 is controversial to a point – physical hard yakka is not easy at 65+ – comments have been made by scaffolding labourers and similar workers that the Treasurer might be able to forecast that length of time in his career – but not all physical labourers can last the (career) distance.  My comment relates to my own story of the need to push on much longer than ever anticipated in order to fund myself and family.  Read “Great Handbag – don’t forget your Briefcase” as a story that tells why ensuring physical fitness and stamina is important for reasons other than the Treasurer’s own belief – that of necessity!
