Comment on Housing rents as much as some families earn by Vicky.

This is so true and a very sad state of affairs. I have family in Alice Springs who pays $460 a week for a three-bedroom house in a poor state of repair. They struggle to put food on the table for the family on a daily basis.
Greedy real estate agents ill-inform landlords of true rental values in town.
They then increase rents not knowing it makes life even harder for those in their properties.
Greed is everywhere, people where I live try to get a “cut” of miners wages by having high rents here too.
Wake up Australia, have compassion for those less fortunate than you and trying to get on in the world.
