Waged poor struggling with energy bills

Posted on: Tue 3 Dec 2019

In 2015-16, there were almost 250,000 households around Australia whose main source of income were wages, but who were still living below the poverty line.

Working to Make Ends Meet is a new report from the South Australian Council of Social Service, which explores the experiences of the ‘waged poor’, particularly when it comes to energy bill stress.

Rebecca Law, Policy Officer at SACOSS speaks to Small Change‘s Lisa Burns about the findings and recommendations of the report.
