Employment and Income Overview


"Though I have stopped working, I am working to live" BME elder

"BME elders have told PRIAE through our engagement work, that they are not asking for a luxury lifestyle but basic income for their lives to be comfortable. Alas, Not a rock star billionaire lifestyle but one in which they can feel safe, secure, healthy and free to do what they choose with their time and money. Instead many live in poverty, sacrificing basic needs to heat or eat and having to ration as if the country were at war". (Shah, K 2010 Pensions Seminar, London).
