Carers must not be penalised on pensions – Harkin

The Independent MEP Marian Harkin is
calling for a system that ensures carers get a decent pension when they retire.
The Midlands North-West MEP says the gender pension gap is a shocking forty
percent in Ireland. And she says many women who provide care for others who
need help, end up in poverty. Ms Harkin was speaking in the European Parliament
where the issue of gender pension gaps was raised during the week.
