We live in ‘boomtown’ Perth where, because of the resource boom, people are wealthier than they have ever been… apparently. The average income of a West Oz bloke is $1350.00 a week.
But there are plenty for whom the ‘boom’ has only meant a further tightening of the belt.
Grendel shares a bread run with others of us around the local area and his insights here echo my own experience of the last few times.
The poor are still with us.
