Ian Henschke speaks to the incredible value of employing Senior Australians | 6PR

We’re going to keep pushing the government to bring in this policy that we’ve been fighting for the last couple of years, which is let the pensioners work and simply pay income tax. In other words, just a fair rate of taxation, which is what they have in New Zealand, where they have many, more people in the workforce than we’ve got here. And we really should be following the same example as New Zealand. And I think we can do it and I know that there’d be plenty of listeners out there who say, Look, I’ve worked all my life, I want to retire. That’s fine, for you. But if you’ve got someone there who doesn’t have a lot of superannuation or gets enjoyment from work, why should you punish them?
