Super exemption call self-serving
I was interested to read about Uniting Church ministers wanting to be exempt from the government’s changes to superannuation (“Not so super: Retirement incomes slashed”, February 2016, page five). What makes them think that they are alone in this? Many of us will be affected by the changes. Let’s all be exempt!
This change is a measure that will bring in little revenue and seriously affects the lives and wellbeing of many. It is not only the lifestyle of Uniting Church ministers that needs to be protected.
It is very self-serving to request an exemption for one relatively small group.
