This affects us all, especially feeling it because me and my 2 roommates work in hospo as well. We all lost our jobs. Because they are Kiwis, one of them made the hard choice to go back to NZ because he will be looked after there financially. And to try to claim anything, a lot of us have never dealt with Centerlink, we dont have a CRN, and its been impossible to just even set up an account so that we can process a claim so that we can get assistance.
On a mental note, this affects all of us that use our job as our “social” time. We no longer have that. I really miss my hospo friends 🙁
