Read media release: CEDA national poll: law and order issues; higher minimum wage more important to Victorians

CEDA has released the Victorian results from Community pulse 2018: the economic disconnect - polling exploring Australians’ attitudes to work, education, health, community and the economy.

Reduced violence in homes and communities, tough criminal laws and criminal sentences and a higher minimum wage were all issues that rated more important to Victorians compared to other states in a nation-wide poll.

Reduced commuting times was surprisingly one of the least important areas to Victorians and Victorians were less concerned with regulation to stop welfare fraud than those in other states. One of the most contested areas was regular pay rises, with many Victorians rating it either as very important or not important at all.

On the national issues of greatest importance, Victorians were in line with the national results placing greatest importance on high quality and accessible public hospitals; strong regulation to limit foreign ownership of Australian land/assets; increased pension payments; high quality and choice of aged care services; and high quality and accessible public schools.
