In this new world of covvid19 restrictions we now have 23,000 Australian Citizens both young and old unable get home to their families in Australia. Why?? Our Australian government has capped the amount of entries per day on flights which in turn has placed international airlines into financial ruin, reducing flights, increasing flight prices to Australia. Which in turn cancels economy seats substituting them for business class so only the elite/rich get back.  This has created financial hardship for Australians stuck in countries without an income, without visas,  with no where to go with no money for housing, food or standard living essentials, etc., unnecessarily creating deteriorating mental health and putting Australians in danger of becoming a victim to the pandemic. The Australian government wants our citizens stuck in foreign countries to declare  hardship to be able to offer a hardship loan. The problem is no hardship loan from the government can guarantee a seat on a flight now with flight waiting periods of up to two months with no guarantee any seat will not be cancelled.. Our fellow citizens are being treated with less care than we give to community aid abroad to non citizens of third world countries and our country should hold our government responsible and we should hold our heads in shame. What happened to helping a little aussie digger when their down... what have we become... what have our leaders allowed us to become !!
