"This report looks at the experiences of Tasmanian Centrelink customers who are in debt to Centrelink. It provides an overview of one state's experience of a decade of changes in social security law, declining legal aid funding and mounting social and economic pressures - such as the 'churning' of the low wage and casual labour market and the growing affordable housing crisis."
