Inflation Seminars – Workers Are Not To Blame


Workers today face many extraordinary challengesFrom the rising cost of food, to everyday bills and transport.  Many families are responding to rising inflation by cutting back on essentials, a recent report by the NAB showed that 1 in 2 are cutting back by switching to cheaper brands, and 4 out of 10 have cancelled altogether regular spending like lunch and coffee. 


Workers today face many extraordinary challenges.  From the rising cost of food, to everyday bills and transport.  Many families are responding to rising inflation by cutting back on essentials, a recent report by the NAB showed that 1 in 2 are cutting back by switching to cheaper brands, and 4 out of 10 have cancelled altogether regular spending like lunch and coffee.    

But when we cut back, or cut out, we reduce the demand for goods in other areas, and put those jobs under pressure as well. 

Many workers are asking how we can keep up with the cost of living.  But as we have seen through paper and television news, we’re being told that to ask for more drive’s inflation.  

So, who is right?  

In partnership with the Centre for Future Work, ATUI will be holding a series of seminars to explore this very question and give hope that we might ask for more. 

By joining these seminars, you will learn more about inflation, how profits drive inflation and how wages have stagnated for the last 9 years.
