The business I work for has fired all members of staff and will not be looking to reopen after the crisis is over. I was meant to have this job for the next two years with a supervisor position on the horizon and continued career progression to follow (with one of Australia’s top luxury hotels) but not anymore. We were all fired. All of us. With one weeks notice. I have two months of rent saved but after that I have nothing else. My mental health is shattered and the career I have been working for over the past 6 years has completely gone up in smoke. I will most likely need to move home to my mum’s and break lease in my current apartment if I can’t get a stable income in the next month and a half. With the estimate being that the industry will be in lock down for 5 months this outcome is inevitable.
We need more then just the usual job seeker allowance of $570 a FORTNIGHT. We need help.
