Beneficiaries Left Out In The Cold

Beneficiaries Left Out In The Cold.

On October 1 when Superannuation was increased to adjust the Tax cuts which raised the net average wage after tax, the Beneficiaries were completely forgotten by Government. With the 10.6% increase in the cost of food for the year ending August 31 2008 plus the increases to Rates and Rents, and Energy. This is the biggest monthly increase for 19 years.
