Supermarket prices are continuing to bite all Victorians right when they can least afford it.
Victorian families are struggling to put food on the table, punished by rising inflation and the Labor Government’s incompetence.
With the average family this year now spending $1565 more on groceries, hardworking Victorian families are simply struggling to maintain their standard of living.
At the supermarket, the impact is obvious, with dairy products rising by 15 per cent, while bread and cereal products have increased 12 per cent since 2022.
Victorian employment opportunities will be reduced because Labor has raised payroll taxes and a 42 per cent hike in Workcover premiums since this time last year.
And the increase in land tax will make it more difficult for renters to find suitable accommodation as a result of Labor’s incompetence.
Hardworking Victorians will also be punished because of the Labor government policy conditions as energy prices have also increased by 31 per cent.
Foodbank Victoria reported a 27 per cent increase in distribution this past year, providing food for the needy. It is no surprise given the mounting cost of living pressures.
According to Foodbank CEO, David McNamara, charities have experienced a 300 per cent increase in demand from families in need.
Charities are struggling to keep up with the demand of families in need, with the number of families in need going up 300 per cent in the past year.
The cost-of-living crisis is biting. Life just gets harder under Labor.
