Nobody deserves to live under the poverty line. But Morrison's attack on JobSeeker will force people to. So we're cutting through Morrison's nonsense. In two (funny) minutes we'll show you how we all benefit from a world in which no one is forced to live in poverty.

The pandemic is far from over, the recession has only just begun but Morrison's decided the time for support is over.
By gutting JobSeeker, he places potentially 2 million people and their families under the poverty line.1
At a time when there are 13 job seekers to every job, it's not only heartless, it doesn't make any sense.2
Cuts to JobSeeker are being debated in parliament today.3 So it's more important than ever that we cut through the Morrison government's crap and show how we all benefit from a world in which no one is forced to live in poverty.
Watch the two minute video and share it with your friends to stop the cuts to income support.

A higher JobSeeker payment means more support for those who need it, more demand for local businesses and more jobs created for people to get back to work sooner.
With cuts to JobSeeker at the top of the agenda for parliament this week, it's more important than ever to show that there is a real economic and moral mandate for maintaining the higher rate of JobSeeker.
And if we can share this video as far and wide as possible we can highlight just how cruel and irrational the Morrison Government's cuts to JobSeeker really are.
Can you watch the short video and share it to pressure Morrison not to cut income support?
The Morrison Government is hoping they can get away with cutting support quietly.
But they have people's lives in their hands. People who won't be able to make their rent, families who won't be able to put food on the table, children who won't get Christmas presents.
So let's lay down the facts. Because we can afford an income support system that gives people dignity in this hard time – and we must demand it.
