James, a Part-time worker from NSW says:

My current pay rate results in nearly 60-80% of my total wag be paid to rent alone, the cost of living has resulted in a disproportionate result where wages go up mch more slowly than the cost of living. These increases seem like nothing to those earning big dollars in the 80k-100k range but this result looks to a decline in general health, using 2 min noodles as a cost efficent way to sustain, cheap cokes as ‘treats’ resulting in further declines in well being and nutrients, which over all just unsustainable. Being in predominate darkness at night to ensure electricity wont be excessive either.
