Event Details

Charities, unions, business groups, regional groups, local councils, 75 percent of Australians, and now, politicians from the major parties: everyone is saying that Newstart needs a raise. You cannot get by on $40 a day ($280 a week).

Newstart has not been raised in real terms since 1994 and but the campaign to raise the rate is growing every week.

Join us for a Raise the Rate Community Forum to discuss the topic: “HOW DO WE WIN A RAISE TO ALLOWANCES?”

What do we need to do to win?

And how can you get involved in the campaign?

Join us to hear from people involved in the campaign, people on payments, and others who care about raising the rate.

WHEN: 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Tuesday 3rd September 2019
WHERE: Gumbramorra Hall, Addison Road Community Centre, 142 Addison Road Marrickville
