Barnett Budget cash grab

Friday 20 May 2011

People are doing it tough and I am very concerned for our future which is  clouded by debt which grows to $22 billion by 2015, and will need paying off" said Ms Freeman.

"As a previous community sector volunteer, I  welcome the additional money into this area. However It is vital that it goes to organisations, like Uniting Aid and the Edmund Rice Center that deliver on the ground support to those in need in our community." 

In addition workers should receive increased pay,  especially since Fair Work Australia has identified equal pay issues in the community sector."
