Adam Bandt at Collingwood Renters Rally
The new Rental Affordability Index report came out today. It told us that Renters on Jobseeker need to use AT LEAST 78% of their income to rent a one-bedroom apartment in our capital cities. (If they can secure a rental in the first place).
At a rally in Collingwood on the weekend, this crowd demanded better for everyone who’s suffering because of the housing crisis. $7 Billion should not be going to wealthy people and property moguls. We need better protections for renters and we need them now.
