Australia’s opposition parties, particularly the Labor Party, on Monday demanded the federal government to bring an emergency economic package for business areas that have suffered losses due to the Corona epidemic. While the federal government has reduced jobkeeper payments for the second time in three months. It is given to employees of institutions whose business has been affected by Corona.
Please tell that due to Corona, the business world has been adversely affected. The economies of the countries are trying to overcome the epidemic, but the government’s support is expected.
Financial spokesman for Australia’s Labor Party, Katie Galgher, said the government was withdrawing financial support at a time when domestic restrictions have been reintroduced recently after Corona’s new strain was discovered.
According to the Xinhua News Agency, the salary per fortnight was 1200 Australian dollars, which has been reduced to $ 1000. This deduction has been made for those who used to work more than 20 hours in the first week, but are unable to do so much work due to corona. For employees who work less than 20 hours, their pay has been reduced from $ 750 to $ 650.
It is also noteworthy that the Morrison Government of Australia has reduced the salary of the jobber for the second time in the last three months. On the other hand, 22 lakh people of the country are waiting for jobs. The government estimates that by March, the number of unemployed in the country will increase by 90 thousand. In the December quarter, 16 lakh people were receiving jobkeeper payments, while in the era of the raging Corona they were 3.6 million. At that time all these servants were paid 1500 Australian dollars per fortnight.
