The Big Issue is Back! Cashless

Posted on: Wed 8 Jul 2020

This week, The Big Issue is reporting on the isolation stories from its vendors.

The street newspaper is sold by Australian homeless, disadvantaged and marginalised people – keeping half of the proceeds. And these groups, hit particularly hard by COVID-19, are coming back to talk about how they’ve managed these rocky times.

Vendors are equipped with all the necessary hygiene measures, as well as means for cashless payments.

Editor at The Big Issue, Amy Hetherington, joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to share more about this triumphant return.
