On tonight’s show:

Rental Fairness Bill – A bill on rental fairness put before NSW parliament by the new Labor government may actually push rents to new record highs. Housing experts also fear that private bidding between desperate rental applicants, with agents turning a blind eye, could entrench the culture of auctioning housing in an already tight rental market.

Essential Workers Priced Out – A new report from the national Everybody’s Home campaign indicates, essential workers are priced out from their communities because they can’t compete with spiralling rent prices. For many they only have $20 left in the hand daily,  after paying rent. If a single parent, child care costs must come from these last dollars.
