Pensioners with the lowest pensions are hit particularly hard by inflation and rising prices. These are vulnerable groups; some have struggled their entire lives in precarious jobs or taking care of children without savings for their retirement. With the prices of food and electricity escalating, in economies already tightly controlling spending, inflation has thrown the retirement budgets out of balance. In Spain, Datadista has analyzed the data on the impact that inflation has had on pensioners region by region. In Portugal, Divergente has interviewed pensioners and other workers facing harsh economic realities. This session will look into different ways in which one can report on poverty and pension funds.
