Income inequality between older women, luck or fate?
The New York Times wrote an article about income inequality between two older women but with two different stories. Everyone thinks retirees do well, spending their money on gifts and presents for their grand-children, on travelling, at events and on charity. But the reality is different from this rost picture. Actually, those without a university degree, having lost a business or a job during the recession, or who have had a divorce have more difficulties to life than a woman who graduated, is married, or inherited from relatives.
Recommendations from California Elder Rights Lawyers
Moreover, the studies show upper income women who was born in 60’s live 13 years more than lower income women during the same period. Our California elder rights lawyers suggest that this stems from a wide range of issues, from access to transportation and less pollution in more affluent areas, as well as free time for exercise and rest, access to insurance, less daily stress, and the innumerable other benefits that accrue to the wealthy.
To conclude, it is not about luck or fate, we can change our destiny and help the older people. We have to keep fighting against cuts that aim to reduce the pension income and assist retires so they can live in dignity.
