Politics in the Pub: HOW WILL THE BUDGET AFFECT YOUNG PEOPLE?
Our Politics in the Pub series focuses on youth. This month we ask – how will young people be affected by the 2019 budget? Grattan Institute’s Danielle Wood has analysed the effect of recent budgets on Australia’s youth and concludes that successive budgets have disadvantaged young people to the benefit of older generations. We ask – How do Young People get by Today? in circumstances where government policies are set in favour of older generations.
