I'm an electrical apprentice. For 40 hours of work, I get $480 after tax. Working on a job site full of people with no care for social distancing. Not to mention it's hard work in itself. Meanwhile countless people on Jobseeker including my gf get $550 a week for doing fuck all.
I'm trying to save for a new car since I was involved in an accident and decided to sort it out privately instead of using my insurance and ruining my record as a P plater. It's excruciating, if anything this virus just makes me want to quit and go on the dole instead. Why the fuck should I even bother. IT TAKES ME 6 FUCKING MONTHS TO GET 10K AND THEY GET MORE FOR NOTHING.
