Debbie Abrahams comments on CAB report on workplace pension schemes

Debbie
Abrahams MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary,
commenting on the findings of the
Citizens Advice Bureau report, said:

“It
is shocking to see that hundreds of thousands of low income workers, most of
whom are women, are being blocked from these workplace pension schemes by the
Tory Government.

"This
month Labour demanded the Government look at how people working multiple jobs
could be allowed to save. They refused.”

“While
the Tories abandon older people, Labour wants to ensure that everyone can have
the secure, dignified retirement that they deserve.”
