5 reasons why working until you’re 80 is a bad idea

Politicians are planning to raise the minimum retirement age and should think again. Next we’ll be told 80 is the new 70. There are 5 good reasons why working until you’re 80 is a bad idea.

  1. Yearly sick leave quotas will increase. There freeimage-5852168-highare too many preventative screening tests after 50.
  2. Fractured femurs will cause workplace insurance to skyrocket.
  3. Grandparent Leave will  be introduced because no one is at home to look after the kids.
  4. All product labelling will be redesigned with large print. Otherwise the peaches will end up with the pears on supermarket shelves
  5. Compulsory superannuation will go. Many of us won’t get to retire so the whole scheme will no longer apply. Use the money to pay university debt instead – the Uniannuation Fund! …mmm…this one might be a good idea.
