Thomas, a Full-time worker from NSW says:

Over the last year or so cost of living for me has become an insurmountable challenge, with genuine impacts on my health and quality of life.

The most recent hit to my household budget has been my fixed term on mortgage expiring leading to a 5% +/- jump in my interest rate.

This has caused incredible amounts of stress, sleepless nights, skiped meals and the inaffordability of doctors appointments and medication.

On top of my 38 hour full time job it’s now looking as if I will need another job, alternatively I could sell my home or try to find help from a charity to be able to eat every week or to get the medication I need.
