Will a Meat Tax Drive Aussies Away From the Snag?

As the Australian economy and health care systems continue to stumble its way through a fragile few months, a meat tax that PETA Australia has proposed to Treasurer Josh Frydenburg may give the economy the boost it needs, while encouraging Aussies to eat healthier, more sustainably and more ethically whilst also easing the workload of medical professionals. And whilst this seems beneficial in theory, could a practical application of such a tax make any sort of real change to the financial and healthcare crisis Australia could soon find itself in? 

The Daily was joined by Emily Rice, Outreach and Partnerships Manager from animal rights organization PETA, Australia to tell us more about how such a meat tax could better protect our economy, our health, and our medical professionals.
