Put People Ahead Of Big Business In The COVID Crisis

Put People Ahead Of Big Business In The COVID Crisis

UPDATE: Since launching this campaign, we have already won a number of our demands. We still have a long fight ahead of us to ensure the government is putting people first both through this crisis and beyond. Add your name and sign up to keep working towards a fairer future for all of us.

We demand the government put people first by:
1. Raising the rate of Jobseeker (Newstart) Youth Allowance and related payments.
2. Freeze rent obligations and ban all evictions.
3. Increase public funding to essential public services and deliver a jobs guarantee.

We are at the beginning of an unprecedented crisis. Along with the serious health risks of COVID-19, the economic impacts are already being felt by the most vulnerable people in our country.

Young people are especially likely to face economic hardship as our workplaces shut down, cancel our shifts and it becomes impossible to pay rent and maintain our physical and mental health.

Instead of bailing out big businesses who continue to lay-off staff, we need the government to focus on directly supporting people through this crisis, and ensuring our basic needs can be met.

Young people are already facing an uncertain and stressful future; a recession will hit them especially hard. We need long term fixes, not short term bailouts for big business.
