More than a quarter of Australians say they’re trying to do things right and more than half believe they are, according to a new survey.
Key points:More than a third of Australians said they were trying to make money, while more than one-quarter believed they were doing the right thingSource: ABC News | Duration: 2min 29secTopics:education,community-and-society,health,social-media,internet-culture,australiaFirst posted May 07, 2018 17:54:51More than one in four Australians believe they’re making money and more say they are doing the correct thing, according the ABC’s Australian Capital Territory survey.
The findings come as the Federal Government looks to cut the cost of education and support services, with a national review of the Australian curriculum set to be released in June.
“More than two-thirds of people believe they were the right person to do what they were going to do, they were taking the right decision, or they had the right experience to be doing it, said Fiona McAlpine, the chief executive of the National Education and Skills Funding Agency.”
There’s no question they want to get on with their lives.
“The survey found the majority of respondents were satisfied with their life.
More than half said they had had enough money to buy a home, while half said their incomes were too low to pay for it.
Many respondents also said they thought their lives were a good place to be and wanted to be involved in society, but had concerns about being able to pay their bills.”
I was never a fan of having to ask my parents for help because I had been raised that way, but I’ve been able to take it on board and make my own decisions,” said one respondent, who asked not to be named.”
That’s one of the things I’m most proud of is the fact I’m not a typical person in my 20s.
“Most of my friends are in their 60s and 70s, and I’m the only one in my 40s who’s doing well.”
Mr McAlphyne said more people than ever were feeling the pinch in the financial markets as the economy continues to struggle with the global financial crisis.
“It’s a real issue for people in the economy and people in households and people on welfare and the elderly,” she said.
“We are seeing that more and more people are being squeezed, particularly young people, and that’s a really bad thing.”
The fact is, we’re going to see a lot of the money going to the richest 1 per cent, so we’re looking at some very, very high levels of inequality.
“She said she believed the survey was the most comprehensive and objective in its scope to date and the survey had identified a number of trends in the workforce.”
If you look at the work we’ve done, we know we’re seeing that the more skilled the workforce is, the more they’re getting paid,” she told ABC News Breakfast.”
So that’s why we’re not seeing a lot more young people leaving the workforce, but also because they’re also finding they’re in very high-paying jobs, and they’re looking for those jobs.
