My work place was one of the first to close. I’ve worked in hospitality for 8 years and have never been unemployed. I haven’t been able to find any other work, my family is not wealthy and are also struggling with income loss.
Even if I get unemployment benifits from Centrelink this will just barely cover my rent, I will not be able to afford food after after another week nor my utilities and phone bill.
I’ve always worked very hard and never paid bills or rent late, I’ve lived in my home for 4 years and looked after myself since I was very young. Now my whole life is falling apart and if we don’t get some kind of assistance I will likely be homeless.
