Petition Move the State Pension age back to 60 for both men & women
Move the pension age back to 60 for both men & women. With immediate/imminent effect. Back to what it was for women born in the 1950s & 1960s.
Young people are struggling to find work, & losing their jobs, due to the pandemic. Why not allow older people to retire earlier, thereby freeing up jobs for younger people? There would be a cost, however, surely a far more positive cost than paying Universal Credit? Not to mention the option of restoring the balance back into young people's favour, & helping restore their future.
