It's Time to Raise the Rate of JobSeeker

We all know it can be tough to find work, whether it be extra work to make ends meet, or any work at all.

The Government should not be disadvantaging people who find themselves without work.

At just $40 a day for many people, the current base rate of JobSeeker is too low. 

The evidence is clear – Newstart is so low that it’s acting as a barrier to finding work and it’s pushing people into poverty.

We are calling on the Liberal National Government to increase the JobSeeker payment to deliver relief from poverty and help people find jobs.
