🚨JobKeeper Payments🚨

The Prime Minister has just announced $130 billion economic stimulus package to keep more Australian workers employed.

This includes a $1,500 payment per fortnight to employers to keep employees on the books.

These payments will be delivered through the ATO. Employers will have a legal obligation to pass the full wage subsidy on to employees.

Job Keeper payments will be available to part-time workers and casuals who have been in their job for at least one year.
They will also be available to not-for-profit employees and New Zealanders who work in Australia but are typically unable to access welfare programs.

The $1,500 Job Keeper payment is a flat payment and is the equivalent of around 70 per cent of the median wage. In sectors most impacted by the coronavirus including retail, hospitality and tourism, it represents about 100 per cent of the median wage.

Today, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is sending millions of Queenslanders to the polls, despite a lack of hand sanitiser at most booths.

The Premier is telling Queenslanders it’s important and safe. Yet, she’s cancelled next week’s Parliamentary sitting because it’s not safe.

Clearly there is one rule for the Premier and one rule for the rest of us.

Premier, what happened to “people come first – they always come first for me”?

This is hypocrisy of the highest order.
