Life on Struggle Street - 39% of Wellingtonians worried about their future

Worrying report today in The Dominion Post reporting on a survey which showed that many people are living from pay day to pay day. 39% of Wellingtonians said they were concerned about their future. WCC has a good Economic Development Strategy in place (for the most part, don't support initiatives like road building for economic growth) but it will take a bit of time for Wellingtonians to see the fruit of that work, agreed to last year.

The Government needs to take this survey seriously. This is not a country in good heart when white collar workers are going to the Salvation Army for assistance.
