Why we need to make our voice heard

The crisis is not over.

Queenslanders are still facing real cost of living challenges.

Inflation may be slowing but prices are still going up.

There is a lot of talk about lower interest rates but nothing has happened yet.

As Queenslanders continue to struggle each and every day with the cost of living we need more relief in 2024.

Our campaign is calling for Queensland politicians to put people before company profits.

Will you add your voice to our call?

More in 2024 launched

Mining  companies continue to enjoy record coal prices selling Queensland’s coal and continue to make record profits, but they are continuing  their campaign against sharing their profits with all Queensland through paying more in royalties.

The More in 2024 campaign was launched to make sure Queensland politicians continue to make cost of living a priority in this years budget and don’t give to the pressure from the big business.

The Coalition of Working Families was created by families, workers and their unions including Together Queensland. It has been created to give a stronger voice for Queenslanders who need more cost of living relief in 2024.
