Old Dog Thoughts- Is Victoria a victim of it’s own success? The country’s greatest work hotspot is still a need and now a virus hotspot.

Thousands skip isolation as virus surge gains pace

The LNP job Keeper and Seeker schemes give $$ to companies not individuals so don’t allay anxiety and the need to work. A universal stimulus package would take that pressure off families allowing individuals to confidently comply. The uncertainty of the LNP benefits and support schemes does the opposite. So Victoria’s economic success story jobs jobs jobs now make it it’s own worst enemy in a pandemic. Jobs remain a necessity but are an increased uncertainty for families and with borders locked puts added pressure on the individuals supporting them. As Job Keeper doesn’t go directly to them and seeker isn’t enough. Contagion and the unseen and unknown risk is not as an immediate compliance stick as the need to work is. With the guarantee of a universal benefit scheme, we would not see what’s currently happening  (ODT)
