Submission to the Senate Inquiry into the Extent of Income Inequality in Australia

15 October 2014
NRHA highlights that income inequality has worsened for people in rural and remote areas over the past decade, and this has exacerbated access challenges to health, housing, education and work which they already face. NRHA calls for investment in regional development and jobs, through improved access to secondary education, high-speed broadband, renewable energy industries, and other means through which the economic base of rural regions can be strengthened.
