Invasion Day activists contest that Australia Day enforces a false narrative of an Australia that began on this day, and forgets a preceding history.

MYTH TWO: SUPER’S ALL ABOUT FEES “It’s actually about the net return you get after fees,” Mr Aarsen said. Avoid assuming that, because a fund’s fees were … [Read more...] about The seven myths to bust about your superannuation
