The Inner Sydney Greens and NSW Senator Mehreen Faruqi are calling for Newstart to be increased by $75 per week to support residents in need who live in the city of Sydney.

In the City of Sydney alone there are 3, 945 people living on $34.97 a day. These are Sydney’s Newstart residents forced to live below the poverty line. Many are in the 55-64 year age group, the largest segment of all Newstart recipients.

Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has secured support in the senate for an inquiry into Newstart. The community and business support raising Newstart payments. Yet the Morrison government continues to say no.

Join us and let Scott Morrison, Anthony Albanese and Tanya Plibersek know that you support raising Newstart payments by $75 a week because you believe that improving the lives of Sydney’s most vulnerable people is important, and so should they.
