  1. This is exactly why young people cannot get jobs…good on her but if we all work untill 100 where the stuff are the jobs for next generation

    • This is not the reason young people can’t get jobs. They don’t want to do these jobs they want to be the managing director

    • Some maybe but if everyone works until they are 80 or 100 with jobs going off shore where the hell are the jobs

    • I have personally never had trouble getting a job, but i get paid peanuts, i am 64 and i would want to retire at 65 so someone else can move in…even though i cant afford to retire

      • With such a negative attitude as yours Pat Coghlan I’m not too surprised that you are putting down someone who does have a bit of get up & go – as opposed to your got up & gone. Stop being such a whingy ” ME ME ME ” person – give credit to an older person who has taken it on to continue supporting herself – even with disabilities , instead of relying on government hand outs.
        Shame on you.

  2. What an amazing and resilient woman. Sadly this sight will become common in Australia with Turnbull’s and the Liberal Parties wanting to push the pension age out evermore.

  3. I admire this lady. It is true never give up. I didn’t when I divorced my husband and had to provide for two children. I had a couple of lovely jobs provided for the children who now tell me they are privileged to have a Mother like me. The never giving up has paid in spades. Two decent human beings who have never given me a major problem.
