PricewaterhouseCoopers have recently projected that a nationwide vote on marriage equality could cost up to $525 million.
$158 million to facilitate,$66 million for the community to fund the "for" and "against" campaigns,$281 million in lost productivity as people take time out to vote, and at least $20 million in costs associated with the impact on the mental health and wellbeing of Australian citizens.
In so many words, PwC have called this marriage vote a huge waste of time and money, that'll be damaging to the health and wellbeing of Australians!
