New super laws that trap Australians in dud super products could cost millions of workers almost $230,000 from their retirement savings – unless the Senate acts today to fix the flawed Bill.

The government’s Your Future, Your Super legislation staples millions of members into dud products that would either fail new performance tests or are shielded from them altogether.
