While many people will benefit from the Government’s stimulus packages, the Government’s response to COVID-19 continues to see large sections of our population left behind who are disproportionately affected by this health and economic crisis.
I will be seeking the support of the Senate to:
• Extend the $550 supplement to the Disability Support Pension (DSP) and Carer Payments
• Amend the revenue test for charities and not-for-profits
• Extend the Jobseeker Payment to people on temporary visas
• Ensure that part-time workers can’t be exploited
