How much more evidence and support is required for our leaders to act on Newstart and the Youth Allowance. Trapping people in poverty is not good enough.

Interesting read on mismatch b/t jobs and job seekers. Do we need change in policy, individuals, both? Will it reinforce casualised employment? Australian employment opportunities misaligned with job seekers' needs, study warns - ABC News

... AND ... Rent Control. There's NO point raising the rate unless rents are capped. Real estate agents and Aussie property investors will just continue to fleece renters as they ALL currently do. This MUST be fixed properly!

See my timeline. We are not reviewing Newstart, we are looking at how to fix the broken employment services system. We need to now.

Peter, I agree with Joe. If they won't split it, don't pass it. Hammer them to improve FWC for further minimum pay increases, to , etc. We cannot afford the third stage & we do not want a completley flat rate and I say that as someone who has paid 47% tax 4 years

How many students dropped out of uni because they couldn't afford to study? Youth Allowance is just $32 a day ($11,500 a year). Anyone on Youth Allowance today would not have been born when the payment was last increased in real terms.

Looks like the government heard us, they just didn't listen. $75/week, not some random $75 payment!

This governments proposed tax cuts benefit high income earners more than they beenfit anyone else. How can we afford these cuts but not afford to raise Newstart?

When MPs talk about generous increases to FTB and the like, this is what they mean. Not even $6 a fortnight
