SACOSS Working to Make Ends Meet Conference


SACOSS’ annual energy, water and telco conference will be a virtually delivered event on the 24th of November 2020. This year’s conference theme – “Working To Make Ends Meet” – draws on foundational research conducted by SACOSS on “Waged Poor Households” – households who are mainly receiving income from salaries and wages, but are nevertheless living below the poverty line.

The COVID-19 pandemic has only magnified the challenges faced by waged poor households, with a sudden reduction of hours and loss of income, leaving many struggling to navigate and access support services. With increased underemployment likely to push a new cohort of households into waged poverty, it is ever more important that governments, the community services sector, and businesses working in the essential services understand and respond to the unique challenges faced by waged poor households.

We have created a program designed to investigate the key drivers of waged poverty, open discussions on how to address these and share in planning a more equitable future for all. Join us for what promises to be a thought provoking and engaging day.
