Australia Fair series – Valuing Every Contribution

Australians overwhelmingly back a basic income for Australia. That is the key finding of a landmark new study from Anglicare Australia.

The Valuing Every Contribution study surveyed 1,000 Australians. It found that:

  • Three in four Australians (77%) think all Australians should receive an income above the poverty line
  • Two in five (38%) would use a permanent basic income to secure their finances
  • One in four (22%) would spend more time volunteering
  • One in four (22%) would spend time caring
  • One in five (20%) would improve their skills and education
  • One in ten (12%) would reduce their paid work hours.
