To save you the wait: ❌JobSeeker is slashed. ❌Millionaires get tax cuts. ❌Young people get insecure work. ❌Gas donors get cash that should be going to schools and hospitals. #Budget2020 

We’re in the worst recession in a lifetime, millions are still under lockdown, real unemployment is around 13%, there’s one job for every 13 looking, and the PM thinks this is the week we should cut JobKeeper and JobSeeker? No. #maintaintherate 

Know what might help us endure Vic lockdown even more than you throwing rocks from the sidelines, PM? Keeping JobKeeper & JobSeeker going at their full rates until we're out the other side. PM, instead of trying to get your hands on levers you don't have, pull the ones you do.

The Coalition's recession recovery plan is...to give 91% of tax cuts to the top 20% of income earners? While cutting JobSeeker and JobKeeper for millions of people? This is unconscionable and stupid.

The Coalition's proposed tax cuts will mean Scott Morrison gets an extra $11,640 a year. The Coalition's cuts to the JobSeeker supplement will mean $7800 less a year for unemployed people.

The PM has warned Australia that he "can't save everyone" – but if this means throwing unemployed people, small business owners, and workers under the bus by cutting JobSeeker and JobKeeper, then this is code for saving the rich and powerful first.

McCormack's RAAF jet to the Melbourne Cup was $4300 an hour. On the other hand, the Coalition is saying it will cut JobSeeker back to $40 a day. That's more than a year of JobSeeker for a return flight from Wagga to Melbourne to see a race.

Now the government has no excuse not to roll JobKeeper out to casuals & temporary workers, the arts, boost the DSP, retain the rate of JobSeeker & fund nation-building planet-saving projects with a Jobs Guarantee. @ScottMorrisonMP  - how about it?

Please note - not 1 cent of the Jobseeker payments have hit anyone's bank account yet. Slow & tied up in red tape #4Corners 

Update - Prime Minister also reveals plans in Sunday Times to ban people aged 18-21 from claiming Jobseeker's Allowance or Housing Benefit
