This crisis has seen me on the brink of losing everything. Days before I was due to start my new job (after an expensive relocation to the city) I emailed my new boss asking for confirmation of the inevitable, I had lost my job before I’d even started.
As it stands, I have enough money for 3 more weeks rent.
Centrelink is impossible to reach, my jobseeker claim is on hold with no explanation why, and I’m a sitting duck, waiting to find out if I will get through this with a roof over my hear, or homeless by mid April.
My friends In this industry that I adore are some of the hardest working & resilient people I know, and we do not deserve to live in this kind of despair and fear. No one does.
