  • I own and operate Olderworkers.com.au Australia's number #1 job board for older workers and I can see the difference that Susan Ryan is making with employers.

    There is a long way to go, but we are making progress.Older workers are a hugely underutilised workforce in this country and any business that wants to succeed will already be looking to older workers

    We have employers such as BUPA, Woolworths, Coles, Commonwealth Bank, Allianz, Michael Hill Jeweller who are all looking for older workers for their business.

  • Well someone has to pay tax to support all of Labor's lazy young illegal immigrants coming here on $15k boats who 94% of them refuse to work, much preferring Centrelink Disability Pensions for life. How silly are Aussies putting up with this endless Labor crap. Costing and wasting taxpayer's countless $billions to support these free-loaders who do not like us or our great culture. Then traitors Labor puts the boot into hardworking Aussies all the time.
