As the cost of living continues to rise, fair wages and secure jobs have become a central issue for the 2022 federal election in Australia.

Declining rates and no floor for pay or conditions mean that more than 60% of media freelancers now earn less than half the average Australian wage. 

Quality journalism is vital for a functioning society, and quality journalism demands quality jobs. Politicians must act to support our industry. 

MEAA Media does not affiliate to or endorse any political party. Using the collective strength of thousands of members, we advocate and campaign for legislative change that supports our rights at work and a strong, free press. 

All members are encouraged to understand your candidates’ position on the issues that affect your rights at work before you vote.
