Inequality a major election issue

September 04, 2014 at 10:58 AM

According to a Roy Morgan Research Poll, three weeks out from the election, rising rates of inequality is one of the most significant concerns for voters. For those of us working in the social sector in West Auckland this comes as no surprise.

Research by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Picket, suggests that the higer the income gap between those at the top and those at the bottom, the higher the rates of social harm experienced by society, including all forms of violence. Therefore, addressing inequality is a key concern for those of us working in the family violence sector.
