Many low income families struggle without the rental housing supplement program. I demand the premier give the honest truth rather than a half fast answer. What happens if the federal government doesn’t follow through with their promise about the housing benefit? There are already so many people living on the streets because the rent is so high and they can’t afford it. Or they can but they need to make so much sacrifice that they lose their utilities one by one because they need to eat and keep a roof over their head.
I challenge the premier to live 3 months in the shoes of a low-income family. That means not touching his main bank account but opening up a temporary one and working a minimum wage job, paying rent with that income.
