The governemnt has given relief packages and tax benefits to businesses to tide over this crisis period. Free food grains are distributed through public distribution systems and a small relief was given to people under poverty line in direct benefit transfer. But what about the workers? The workers in urban areas have no money to pay the rent or school fees for their children. Paid leave for COVID 19 affected workers will ensure that their families do not go hungry during the breadwinners illness. It is important to have proper nourishing food to recover from COVID 19. If the wages during the COVID 19 illness are not paid then not only the worker but his/her family members will be victims of the pandemic. It is to ensure food on the plates for the family that we demand Paid Leave for COVID 19 Affected Workers.

  • Winc: Let us take our own Long Service Leave!
    It is your responsibility to help us achieve a healthy work-life balance. Forcing us to take time off when we cannot leave the house leads to fatigue and mental anguish. This creates an unsafe workplace. Our Union, the United Workers Union, has raised this issue with Winc, but no action has been taken.

  • Lockdown relief for SA workers
    My name is Luna Voelcker-Sala. I am a casual worker in the hospitality industry. As a result of the recently announced lockdown for South Australia, I have lost all of my shifts and all my income for (at least) the next 7 days. Yes, important measures have been taken to protect the public's health, but financial support for unemployed workers should be at the heart of these measures. I am fortunate enough to be living at home with a family that can support me, but there are so many others that need to pay rent, alongside groceries, medicine, personal bills etc. And I am just one of the thousands of workers that have lost their entire incomes. We all want to keep everyone safe from COVID-19, but us workers need financial relief to make ends meet.

  • Build a Secondary School for Lalor Northern School for Autism
    Ensuring all children get equal access to education, funding, facilities and support. Last years budget committed to Peter Lalor campus (which are two campuses for senior school students and should be covering mainstream and NSA) is not addressing the gaps and substandard facilities available for our children. WHY? Why will my child’s education be of a lesser value than that of Peter Lalor Voc. College

  • La Trobe University: Hands Off Our V-Grade
    The Deputy Vice-Chancellor said the V-grade was introduced early in the pandemic, in recognition of the distress and uncertainty experienced by many students. But the pandemic isn’t over. Semester 2 started with a lockdown, zoom classes, and rising case numbers. This has, and will continue to, negatively impact thousands of students. So why is John Dewar and La Trobe University choosing to act like the pandemic is over, like many students aren't still struggling to get by? Students need support. Students need the V-Grade reinstated.

  • Stop One voice printing hate speech
    Your focus is a barrier to fair education and evidence based information. You promote the dumbing down of any broad opinion and evidenced information with your cheap headlines and nonsense content articles. The Clayton's ‘ I love Victoria ‘ opinions space is just deliberately dumb hate speech opportunities. It’s cheap and an ignorant deliberate poor focus. Is it anarchy you want? Do you want to trump Trump at being irresponsible mob inciters.
