Change the rules
 
 

Change the rules

The Australia we once knew, that our parents experienced, is not the reality anymore because the rules that made our country fair are broken.

We are building a movement to change the rules to bring fairness back to Australia.

Wage growth is the lowest it’s ever been, but profits are up. Inequality is at a 70 year high.

40% of the workforce is now in insecure work. A whole generation does not know what it is like to have a paid sick day or a paid holiday.

And the richest 1% of Australians owns more wealth than the bottom 70% of Australian citizens combined.

There is an answer to all this.

Working people need better and stronger rights at work to ensure jobs are secure and our wages are fair. We need to re-write the rules to achieve this.

To find out more, to volunteer or to download the campaign kit visit our website today. We also want to hear your stories of the impact of these issues on you www.australianunions.org.au/yourstories

Help change the rules and bring fairness back.

5 reasons your savings might be going backwards

If the halfway mark of 2017 sees your savings looking a little lean, you could be caught in one of five money traps.  We identify the hurdles reported by Aussie savers and how to overcome them.

As the end of the financial year is here, now is the ideal time to check your savings progress.

If you’re on target with your goals, give yourself a pat on the back. If it turns out you’re falling behind, you could be falling into one of the five key traps that keep pushing the goalposts further out.

Trap 1: You’ve been thrown a curveball 
An unexpected event is the single biggest reason we lose savings momentum. Yet, the solution can be simple. Get started with an emergency savings account. Add a little to your slush fund on a regular basis, and enjoy peace of mind knowing that a surprise bill doesn’t have to be a financial shock.

Trap 2: You set the bar too high
Aiming to save too much too fast can be a recipe for disappointment, and saving often works best with a slow but steady approach.
