Santiago

I am an international student, I’ve lost my job. This is real, I have to pay rent, I can’t go to my own country, I have to pay Uni. I have no job. I’ve been living in Sydney for the last 3 years… paying my taxes, and always I’ve been really honest and punctual with the government; I’m really disappointed they don’t have any plan for us, any kind of help.

The resort where I work have been affected too much. At first they have to cut all the casual workers, it then cut several part time workers and finally when the government force all the restaurants and cafes to be takeaway only, they have no choice than stand us down. It is a resort hotel, there will be no one coming to stay, and no one actually coming to just have a nice dinner or […]

Due to the corona virus fast spreading to the state,government implement the restrictions to all the restaurant ,allow them just do take away. For my restaurant,they choose to shut istead of doing take away. Because they are mainly doing tourist business.

I was a bartender so the place I worked was one of the first ‘non-essential’ services to be shut down. It’s a small family run bar and it’s unlikely they will be able to come out on the otherside.. it’s not only that we lost our jobs and wages, my boss has lost his bar, his livelihood, the social distancing has put an indescribable amount of emotional pain on all those connected with the bar, […]
