Naw be, a Part-time worker from ACT says:

My pay rate is not enough to make ends meet as I have to put my health aside so that I could put food on the table. This affects me physically and mentally as well overall quality of life for my family. I am constantly stressed about my financial situation but can not afford to maintain it as a result of not being able to keep up with everyday living cost and the medical bills.

The living cost have increases so much that I do not have any money to go and see my specialist for my health issues as continuesly as I should. But when I do, I needed to rely on credit card to paid for my medical expenses just because I don’t have any spare money to pay for all the medical and specialist bills . Which I am struggling to pay back as I hardly have any spare money from working and paying for everyday costs, to pay off my debt.

I am a young mother of 2 children as well and all the baby related costs have also been really hard to catch up with despite me working part time and my husband work full time.

I believe that with if wage increases, I would be able to atleast afford to pay off my debt quicker and give me some relief.
