My name is Melissa. When JobKeeper ends, this is how I will be impacted: I will go from having enough income to survive with 3 children, to having to decide what bill won’t be paid so I can feed them. I’ve withdrawn super, I’ve cut off all non-necessities, I’m budgeting every cent already. I’ve applied for over 100 jobs- it’s not easy to get another job when over a million other people are all doing the same thing. I have worked and paid tax for 20 years, this is the first time I find myself needing help and it’s a terrifying place to be. Thousands of us need jobkeeper to continue in order to survive. Visa holders must be included- their situation is even worse than ours and they contribute in meaningful ways to this economy. Don’t leave them to starve. Don’t forget about us. We work, we vote and we need help to get through this hard time in our lives. We won’t survive without it.
