Older workers among highest ACC claimants - report

From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 21 November 2017

Grey Power wants to put an end to talk of raising the retirement age, and it thinks a new report from the University of Otago showing older workers are among the highest ACC claimants will help to do that. It shows between 2009 and 2013, workers aged from 55 to 70 filed more than 25,000 claims. The vast majority came from people working in physical jobs like manufacturing, constrution and forestry.
