I haven’t lost my job yet, but I know that I will soon.
I have worked in a small family owned pizza shop for over 6 years, and soon they may be forced to shut their doors.
I often deliver pizzas from 5:30-9 each shift, and I get paid according to how many deliveries I’ve made during the night.
People have stopped ordering, stopped tipping (which I rely on because I get $5 each delivery I do) and started paying over the phone and requesting that I do a contactless delivery.
I’ve been making A significantly minute amount of money over my last few shifts. I maybe make $50 each night (it is cash in hand)
For 3-4 hours work, because no one is wanting to open their door and appreciate the effort I’m going to, and the risk I’m putting myself in as a person with an auto immune disease,
When I lose my job, my last hope will be that Centrelink accept my claim, which has been pending since December.
