I use to be working 2 jobs. Making just under 1500 per fortnight. Nothing big, but I had enough for food, bills, rent and maybe a little fun. But now, I am making just under 500 and declining. My partner is about to lose her job as well. We unable to apply to centrelink since they are not accepting anyone new for Newstart/Job seeker since Friday 20th of March, 2020. We are at our wits end.
My jobs are great, fun to work at and always been supportive. But since Covid-19, doors are closing and shifts are very scarce. The managers are doing their best to distribute shifts fairly and also prioritising people who live out of home. But this is a struggle.
