Pension dis­crim­i­na­tion

Scottish Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

there has been a lot of pub­lic­ity given to the WASPI (Women Against State Pension In­equal­ity) group and their fight to get what they be­lieve is their right­ful pension.

Noth­ing is ever men­tioned about the change in state pen­sions in April 2016, when the new pension was in­tro­duced. It left ex­ist­ing pen­sion­ers £40 per week worse off than peo­ple who claimed after that date.

the cur­rent pension rate is £129.20 for peo­ple who claimed be­fore April 2016 and £168.60 for peo­ple who claimed after that date. Surely this is

age dis­crim­i­na­tion. Will we also be com­pen­sated by the Labour gov­ern­ment? We should be given equal rights.
