My Melbourne based pet sitting and dog walking business has been 98% affected since early March 20 due to being a sole trader. My clients are not holidaying overseas or working interstate. It tough. Just trying to stay upbeat.

I love theatre and music and am spending my time in isolation by watching movies and TV (among other things). I also have a daughter who is an actor, with a boyfriend who is another creative (audio-visual). My niece's partner runs a company which provides audio equipment for large music festivals -- they've just had a baby and now lost their major source of income. The Arts are how people get through the tough times -- we need to support this industry

I am signing as I fully support the petition from freelancers. They are amongst the disadvantaged group of workers during this critical moment we are leaving.
