I have not entriely lost my job but I am very, very close to doing so. Work is such a sad and yet scary place to be at right now. No one is happy and there is no staff morale left between us. Our venue is empty and it brings tears to my eyes for a place that was once so alive and full of fun. I have lost the majority of my shifts with the only thing keeping me from losing my job completely is a part-time contract that my company must fulfil by law. The most I will be getting a week while I still have a job is $160 a week. My rent is $260, and that won’t even cover living costs. What little work I am able to get, I am reluctant to accept for fears of getting myself or others sick. But once the money stops coming in I don’t know how I will support myself. I don’t have any savings or assets and my family lives in rural Victoria, and can’t afford to support my during this time of crisis. My only hope for relief is some kind of payout or funding from Centrelink, but the anxiety and stress of the situation is terrifying and unbearable. I still haven’t even processed this properly because it’s all happened so fast but it feels like the end of the world.
