PLEASE SUPPORT GEORGIA MARSHALL* IN HER FIGHT FOR ADEQUATE YOUTH ALLOWANCE AND AFFORDABLE RENTS AND UNIVERSITY SANCTIONED STUDENT CO-OPERATIVES.


The Facts

● With soaring rental costs and low property vacancies in Australia's capital cities, students living away from home are facing a dire situation.

● At any given time, hundreds of students are relying on the goodwill of friends as they move from house to house sleeping on sofas.

● The earnings limits that Centrelink has set before benefits are affected is inadequate and unrealistic. Students are forced to work unreasonable hours in cash in hand jobs- this is detrimental to their studies

Georgia's Platform

● That Centrelink raise the current Youth Allowance Benefit in line with the housing crisis and inflation.

● That in response to the serious lack of affordable student housing, universities work with students in sanctioning student run co-operatives.

● That universities provide facilities/spaces for initiatives such as breakfasts, dinners and soup kitchens to be implemented so as to alleviate some of the stresses that students are facing.

Support Georgia Marshall on the above platform in her campaign for Lord Mayor of Melbourne, 2008.
