ONE HUNDRED DAYS TO GO AND JOBKEEPERS ARE ON THEIR OWN

 

The Morrison Government will leave millions of Australians behind when JobKeeper is scrapped on September 27.

 

In just 100 days any JobKeeper recipient unable to return to work as a result of the continuing pandemic, or the economic damage it has caused, will be back to Centrelink to join the unemployment queue.

 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he would give Australians the economic lifeline they will need in the many months ahead to make it through and to get on this bridge we’re building together to the other side.

 

In 100 days he is determined to push them off that bridge.

 

When the pandemic began, the Prime Minister told us we were all in this in together.

“Our JobKeeper plan sees every Australian worker the same way, no matter what you earn. There is not more support for some than there is for others. That is not the Australian way. If one person falls on a hard time, if anyone falls on a hard time, it’s the same hard time. We’re all in this together.” Scott Morrison 30 March, 2020

 

His message today is “In 100 days – you are on your own”
