This week is the final week before the supplement is cut by $300 a fortnight, on September 25, affecting over 2 million people on JobSeeker, Youth Allowance, Parenting Payment, and other payments, here is how you can take action with us against these devastating cuts.
Tell them what the $300 cut will mean for you, or the people you know. You can write to your MP here.
**Let’s Flood Social Media. Share a photo of food, with some text about what the $300 cut will mean for your ability to eat fresh, regular, nutritious meals. Or instead, take a photo with our Raise the Rate for Good sign.
Remember to tag the Raise the Rate page on Facebook and the ACOSS page on Twitter, and the hashtags: #RaisetheRateforGood and #CovertheBasics.
You might also like to participate in our Facebook check-in protest, this Tuesday, by ‘checking-in’ to Scott Morrison’s office, and tagging his page, with a message on how you will be affected by the cutting of the supplement. Find out more here.
**Speak To Your Community. Talk to family, friends, and others in your area about why this issue matters, and what they can do.
