Why we need to raise welfare payments now

UnitingCare Australia joins today’s call for an urgent rise in the level of welfare payments. This would: 
 
1. Stimulate the economy by placing greater spending power where it is most needed.
2. Relieve chronic financial stress on those genuinely seeking work and their families.
3. Enable part-time students to spend more time learning, rather than earning, to survive.
