Local families are feeling the pinch when it comes to their household budgets.
The cost of living has been rapidly increasing while at the same time wages have remained flat.
We’ve seen rises in the price of everyday goods and services, including:
- Fuel up 33 per cent
- Electricity up 18 per cent
- Transport up 12 per cent
- Childcare up 3.9 per cent, and
- Tolls up at least 4 per cent every year.
I call on the NSW Government to act now, providing meaningful support to families and households across NSW to meet the ever-rising cost of living.
