After forced shutdown of my workplace on Tuesday and being a “casual” employee all I had was that weeks wage. My husband works in the grain industry and is thankfully still working. However I do not qualify for the stimulus package as my husband is still working and earns good money. This is all well and good however all our loans, credit cards etc were granted based on our combined income. So whilst we may have a nice home and nice car etc our repayments are reflective of our combined income and without my wage we will come under financial pressure. The stimulus package should be for all workers who have been stood down. I don’t know many people who work for the love of it and would think it is out of necessity that all most everyone works.
