Cashless Welfare Card trial continues

Posted on: Mon 14 Dec 2020

Last week, in a vote in the Senate, the trial of the Cashless Welfare Card was extended for two more years after the Senate debated the topic for hours.

The extension was passed partly thanks to the Centre Alliance abstaining from the vote.

Senior Lecturer from Australian National University Elise Klein chats with Breakfast‘s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis about what this means for the future of the card.
