The gender pay gap currently stands at 23% in Australia, but this statistic alone does not capture the full problem. If you don’t have a job, the opportunity to work enough hours, or good working conditions, then wage parity is a secondary issue.

For some of us, retirement may seem like a lifetime away – it isn’t. Years melt away in the blink of an eye, and if that eye isn’t on focussed on your future, you could be left with very little superannuation to support yourself.
