Browsing: cost of living

It seems when the Budget takes one step forward, the display of priority drags them many steps back. This Budget does not prioritise social reform, student poverty or welfare support, leaving vulnerable Australians who seek guidance or support during cost-of-living crises in a bottlenecked welfare system. 

With turnout low but having increased this year, it remains to be seen whether it will significantly improve — what happens will certainly depend on the actions of our councillors.
