What single mums are saying about ScoMo’s $50 JobSeeker raise
From 1 April 2020, the Morrison government is raising the base rate of JobSeeker by $50 but axing the Coronavirus Supplement of $150. That means a NET result of $100 less in your pocket.
What will JobSeeker pay from 1 April?
For single parents on JobSeeker, the current full JobSeeker base rate is currently $762. From 1 April, the parenting base rate of JobSeeker will be $662 per fortnight.
