Our Australians need help to be able to work and look for work. The government needs to create higher fulltime employment positions.

I've heard of people just making up businesses so they can satisfy their mutual obligation requirements.
Morrison and Co have said they will not increase NS as this would jeopardise their precious Budget surplus, right? Their additional argument is that it's ongoing; what cost is not ongoing, unless it's a one-off?
But they can give themselves a $7000 pay rise (funny that, half the NS allowance for a year per person) and think nothing of it.
Double standard much? Oh please.

It is ridiculous that over 50's get the same payment as an 18 year old who probably still lives at home. How are older people who have worked all their life meant to live on $300 a week and get employment when no one wants them its a joke.
