I started working back in the hospitality sector, for a friend, after my disability caused a crisis in my life. I was working cash in hand, as it would have affected my Newtstart payment.
My boss, and friend, made the correct decision, in the interest of public healh saftety, to close his cafe last week. The effects on his revenue and cash flow have been apparent for the last few weeks, so it’s a bit of a no brainer. This means I have lost my shifts, and don’t have access to any of the financial incentives for SME, as I was working off the books.
