I’ve lost my job and the industry I’m trained in has fallen apart – so there’s no jobs going for chefs right now. I’m trying to apply for other work but not hearing anything as I’m unskilled/have not recently worked in other industries and there’s so much competition.
I’m not going to be eligible for Centrelink because my partner earns too much – his job is likely to fall through within the month.
I’m better off than many – I’m lucky to have a partner to support me. But it’s still a horrible situation and I feel helpless.
I’d rather not access my super only to leave myself short later in life.
