Breathtaking injustice

Rhonda Ansiewicz, Federal

Here we have Morrison on $10,000 a week and a net worth of $48 million, together with Frydenberg on several hundred thousand a year, both condemning the unemployed to $40 a day to exist on.

No empathy for the plight of the unemployed while taking good care of the top end of town with tax cuts. Devastating.

    Well said, Rhonda though unemployment benefits have not yet been returned to the pre-pandemic low and hopefully won’t be.

    The problem with reductions to Jobseeker, even Jobkeeper – to give tax cuts of greatest benefit to the biggest incomes – is that it is not only socially unjust it’s also bad economics. At a time when the aim is to stimulate the economy, giving more spending power to those more likely to spend makes much more sense.

  2. I’d put the Sco-moving-Mo in the chook house with the treasuring-gland
    but mother hen wouldn’t like it. The aged pen. is supposed to rise at around
    7$ a week… the nannas & pops can maybe buy a small cup of coffee &
    drink it on the street. Equality in the Great Southern Land is ripe.

    Allan W, Tasmania. Remember also some big end of town businesses used Jobkeeper to hand out bonuses to their shareholders! We don’t forget that Morrison and nor shall we forget the ” Sports Rorts!”
    Might be a good time to also investigate the bullying of the unemployed by Morrison Govt Jobactive providers? A class action anyone?

      There is a Class Action already on foot, with ScamMOfromMarketings RoboRobberyDebt. I hope that ScamMO is personally named in the proceedings ( RoboRobberyDebt was his creation as the Social Services Minister and then he pumped it up on steroids when he switched jobs to Treasurer ) and has to front the Court and explain to the people of Australia his illegal activity that destroyed lives.

    Worse than that Allan, the bonuses went to executives not shareholders. Shareholders consist of a wide representation of society, including super funds, executives are a much more exclusive and privileged crew.

  5. I like Class Actions. There’s a few of ’em.

    George Orwell didn’t realise he was being optimistic when he wrote Animal Farm.

  7. Very true, Greg. Talk about lambs to the slaughter.
