#KeepTheRate. Don't let people on JobSeeker fall back below the poverty line.

I’m a Tassie grandmother who has seen first hand the devastating impact the low rate of JobSeeker (formerly Newstart) has on young families. Due to the impact of coronavirus, the JobSeeker rate has doubled - but it is set to go back below the poverty line when the pandemic is over. 

That’s why I am calling on the government to leave JobSeeker where it is and #KeepTheRate.
