Anti-Poverty Week 2014 #2 - ACOSS - Australian Council of Social Service report - Poverty in Australia 2014 - #Blogaction14, #Inequality, #Oct16, #Ballarat

Do you want to come to grips with the extent of poverty, hardship and inequity in the so-called Lucky Country, Australia?

The picture is not good and it is not getting better - which will have been noted in the proposed 2014 budget of the Abbott Government.

Thanks to ACOSS you can, through reading its report, get some hard data on the extent of poverty in Australia.  You might even be shocked to read the dollar benchmarks for those above and those below the poverty line.  The report, below,can be read on-line or downloaded.
