5 charts on what a Newstart recipient really looks like

A typical Newstart recipient is middle-aged, female, and more likely than most to live outside of a major city.
Even when sharing a house, the average cost of rent means very little is left over from the Newstart allowance for food and living costs.

City share-house rents eat up most of Newstart, leaving less than $100 a week to live on

Once rent is paid, having to live on only $14 a day doesn't cover the costs of job seeking. The evidence of the need to increase Newstart and Rent Allowance is overwhelming.
