Budget #1 2009 - CORI Justice Analysis and Critique
Working Poor and Children Lose Out in Budget 2009
Budget 2009 did not protect the vulnerable. The working poor and children lose out in Budget 2009. Other social welfare recipients will also be worse off in real terms in the coming year.
This happened despite the fact that the distribution of resources in Budget 2009 was very progressive with the only net beneficiaries being people in receipt of social welfare payments.
