The Morrison Government must provide certainty to JobSeeker recipients and lock in a rate.
The Coronavirus Supplement is a clear indication that the base rate is simply not enough to live on. So why should it snap back to $40 a day in December?
The COVID-19 pandemic has proved, more than ever, that any one of us could find ourselves looking for work to make ends meet.
Everyone should be able to afford the basics. The current JobSeeker base rate is too low.
We are calling on the Liberal National Government to raise the rate.
