CEDA calls for an increase to Newstart

CEDA's report, How unequal? Insights into inequality make recommendations to increase Newstart as a step to improve equality and opportunity in Australia.

The report states that 'Adjusting the level of Newstart payments to a more appropriate benchmark and indexation arrangement to ensure adequacy overtime' is an active step towards tackling inequality of opportunity.
