Leanne, a Part-time worker from WA says:

Cost of living has gone well and truly over the top. Our wages are appalling we don’t have enough to pay bills and buy groceries. I only buy what I need in groceries, left overs are never thrown out , price of petrol electricity water and gas are ridiculous, winter I go to bed very early to get warm as can’t afford to run a heater summer I sleep on the floor tiles to keep cool as cannot afford the privilege of running an air con. There is no chance of a holiday as holidays are paid out in cash for essentials. The govt need to work in a nursing home for 1 month on our wage.
