Even in an international downturn, Australia is a prosperous country. Yet many Australians are working more for less and struggling to meet their basic needs, despite being employed.

Living Low Paid investigates the Orwellian vision unfolding, often behind closed doors, in Australia's working heartland. The book challenges the low wage path to national prosperity by exposing the hard realities of living low paid for Australian workers today.

In their own words, workers tell the costs of low pay for individuals, families and communities and the social fabric at large. Workers are increasingly being undermined by casualisation, hours of work and exploitative pay setting methods, while enormous tax breaks are given to the rich, jobs are outsourced, unions are muzzled and job entitlements such as sick pay, holiday pay and penalty rates are scrapped.

Living Low Paid offers a biting account of Australia's growing underbelly. It is vital reading for anyone who cares about where Australia is heading.

The hope that a job was a sure road out of poverty for most in our country no longer holds. This book shows that many face insecure or inadequate hours, low hourly rates and little access to basic benefits. Low pay casts a long shadow, well into retirement for many.'

Louise Tarrant, National Secretary, Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union

This book helps strip back the cloak which shrouds the lived experience of working poverty in a nation where prosperity shields so many from direct knowledge. It is an eloquent argument for change: we can and must do better.'

Tony Nicholson, Executive Director Brotherhood of St Laurence
