$50 a day is not enough to cover essential living expenses. But that’s what people without a job in Australia are expected to do, after the Government slashed the rate of JobSeeker again, on the 31st December.

With only 1 job for every 9 people searching, this cut means that so many people will be forced to make choices between eating, paying rent, buying medicine, or paying bills.

The global pandemic has been so tough on so many. Now more than ever, we need to support one another through it.

That’s why we’re calling for a permanent and adequate increase to the rate of JobSeeker, Youth Allowance and other income support payments so that everyone is can keep a roof over their head with enough left over for food, medicine, and bills.
