On Tuesday, 24 November the state treasurer, Tim Pallas, handed down the delayed budget. With the state recording zero new cases of coronavirus and zero active cases across the state, the budget reflects a hopeful positivity that Victorians may begin to return to ‘life as normal’.

Although the future is looking good, the state has still experienced job losses in numbers close to 300,000, making the budget a huge contributing factor to the future of Victoria’s economy.
