Understandably, all resturants had to close to reduce the spread of this virus. I expect I will be welcomed back when the restrictions lift, however until then I must be able to pay my rent and bills on Centrelink payments alone. My monthly rent is over half of this payment and my power bills will be higher since I am spending more time at home. Slowly, my hard earned savings, which would have helped me […]

No more customers to eat in the restaurant in my hotel and casuals will not be given shifts anymore until this crisis goes away. Rental expense is a huge portion in my wage income and I need this.

I am career hospo. I have been in the industry for 12 years and built my life around it. I have created a name for myself, and a reputation of strength. I understand there is a worldwide health crisis. The governments mismanagement of this has proven yet again that many people do not see our industry as a “real job”.

I was stood down by the company and since I am a temporary visa holder, I am not eligible to receive any funding assistance from the government and my visa only allows me to work for the company that sponsored my visa.
