The transitional relief package

announced yesterday the relief package for those who lose their jobs during this period of global recession. It is up to $160 a week for 16 weeks for those with high accommodation costs.

Strangely one of the criticisms from has been people who get a redundancy payout of over $25,000 will not be eligible.

Labour really don’t get this concept of limited funds, so you target to the most needy. But hey it is good to see Labour concerned about those who get redundancy payouts equal to one year on the minimum wage or seven months on the average wage.
