I work in a music venue. All of my door shifts have been cut because of shows being cancelled. My boss has tried to split out bar shifts in half in order to give everyone at least some work. This means I had one 5hr shift this week that I had to give up due to having a cough.
We get most of our customers in for gigs, and with no gigs and new restrictions on capacity it means the venue is struggling to get patrons in at all. They are trying really hard to support us as staff during this time but I think it is time for the government to step in and close venues down, suspend rent payments and provide a UBI for all casual workers or others who have lost work. Living on centrelink alone means that I cannot pay my rent and support myself to buy necessities like food and toiletries.
