SIGN: Raise the Rate of JobSeeker
If there is one thing this health crisis has proven beyond doubt it’s that the pre-pandemic JobSeeker rate of $40 per day is too low.
Scott Morrison and his Liberal National Government have not committed to increasing the rate of JobSeeker once the Coronavirus supplement has been withdrawn.
As the Prime Minister said at the beginning of this crisis - we need to ‘preserve and support every Australian who has lost a job through no fault of their own’.
The idea that we can simply just snap back to $40 per day is a myth.
Last year I moved a motion to scrap the Government’s unfair and unlawful Robodebt scheme (pictured above).
Now I’m asking you to join our campaign calling on Scott Morrison and his Liberal National Government to raise the rate of JobSeeker?
