I was a full timer on a salary at a bar in Melbourne’s CBD but was made redundant on the spot, not even a weeks notice. My partner also works in hospo and has lost his job as well. We have rent, bills and loans to pay and somehow have to feed ourselves. My parents live overseas so I don’t have a base home to fall back on and may not be eligible for any Centrelink or govt funding as I’m a NZ citizen. I’ve lived here for six years and have never been without a job, I work harder and pay more taxes than some Australians yet I am receiving no help.
