Too poor to retire? Work until you drop under the Tories
Great video from TUC Touchstone showing Senior policy officer Richard Excell explaining the state we are in - "September’s employment figures showed the number of people in employment rising. However, I’ve recorded this video to show that this increase is entirely due to rising numbers of people over retirement age in employment, many of whom cannot afford to retire. At the same time, average wages are falling in real terms, and living standards are falling".
