Goodbye, JobKeeper

Posted on: Fri 26 Mar 2021

As of next week the coronavirus payment JobKeeper will be scrapped and the JobSeeker payment will be slightly increased from its pre-pandemic rate, with a boost of $50 a fortnight.

On top of this, mutual obligations will return, with scope to ramp them up by July.

Elise Klein, Senior Lecturer at Australian National University joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Paul Davies to discuss the impact these obligations have on finding a job.
