"When the pressure is really on": the interim report of the income expenditure study : study of changes in income and expenditure among low income families /

by Trethewey, Jenny.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1986Description: 81 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The release of this interim report coincides with the 1986/87 Federal Budget. A decline in our national income created by serious trade problems had led the Prime Minister to appeal to all Australians to accept a lower standard of living. Pressure to reduce government spending has intensified with pressure to cut welfare programmes. The Brotherhood of St Laurence has informed the Prime Minister of the serious consequences of these proposals. The preliminary interim findings of a research study on fifty families who are reliant on either a social security income or low wages exemplifies the impact of welfare cuts on poor people. This report describes what it means to be an Australian family living on a low income. In so doing, this report shows that these Australian families just cannot reduce their standard of living any further. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
