Victorians cannot afford life under this Labor Government and it is only set to get worse as the new financial year begins.
The cost of living will rise further, with expenses such as rent, council rates, power bills, groceries, public transport, and car registration all set for another round of huge increases.
Rents have swollen by 30 per cent since 2020, and Labor’s decision to again impose higher taxes and charges on property owners is putting more renters under more financial stress.
At the supermarket, the impact is obvious. Families, on average, are being forced to spend $1565 more on groceries this year than last.
While your power bills continue to skyrocket – Labor’s leaders locked up gas reserves and prematurely shut down coal power generation.
Public transport expenses will be growing by 8.7 per cent, with Labor slyly increasing a day pass to $10 – with another rise scheduled for six months’ time.
It’s a sad time for drivers, too, with car registrations increasing another $12.50 and licence renewals increasing by $3.40 a year.
Labor continues to push more responsibility and shift more costs onto local councils to prop up a broken state budget, leading to increased council rates of up to 3.5 per cent.
With taxes and charges continuing to soar, it is obvious why Victorians can no longer afford life under Labor.
