‘Dole bludger’ delusion continues to stalk Australia regardless of the truth
If Australia continues to fetishise an concept of labor that now not exists, employees will proceed to harm.
Although it’s a depressing, inadequate, and manifestly insufficient sum of money, the $50 a fortnight rise within the JobSeeker fee will make a distinction to lots of people’s lives.
It is a fuller grocery basket; an Uber or, hell, myki/Opal experience you possibly can afford when it’s a must to get someplace; a pair of pants when the arse has come out of those you are carrying.
However it’s a measure of how appallingly low the prevailing fee is that the brand new rise represents this stuff.
