Rising costs of childcare in Australia and increasing suffering for Australian families


0

AUSTRALIA NEWS - The cost of childcare continues to rise in Queensland and families continue to struggle to make ends meet.

Childcare costs have risen 15 percent in Brisbane alone in just three years, and by 4.4 percent in the past 12 months, adding to the mounting pressure from the rising cost of living.

It should be noted that the biggest price jumps occurred in the Bald Hills and Everton Park areas of Brisbane, where childcare costs have increased by 6.2 percent this year.

On the Gold Coast, Southport saw the largest increase, with a 5.8 percent increase.

All of these increased costs place additional burdens on families.

It is worth noting that the Federal Labor Party, if elected, proposed to combat rising costs through a plan worth 6 billion dollars to increase support for families with incomes less than 530 thousand dollars.
