The Connectivity Costs II: Telecommunications Affordability and Waged Poor Households report follows our 2016 Connectivity Costs report which looked at telecommunications affordability for those primarily reliant on Centrelink incomes. This new report focuses on telecommunications affordability for those households living below the poverty line but whose main source of income is wages. While many of the issues are the same, there are some specific challenges arising from waged poverty and also from specific employment-related issues.
The Connectivity Costs II: Telecommunications Affordability and Waged Poor Households report is available here.
This report is a complement to the the SACOSS report on energy affordability for waged poor and low wage households.
