Simple solution to cover this and a fair one. Increase job seekers benefit. Yes increase it to say 40% of take home pay for 6 months, than 6 months @ 30% followed by droping to 150 a week after this point or 20% of take home which ever least. Reduce and pressure non skilled dole lifers into work. As i stated before there is 40000+/- dolers that NEVER contributed to society. With dole rent/a med card that is worth at least 350 a week ×40000 wasters × 52 weeks = 728 million. A year. To be honest most this cohort would struggle to take home 350/400 net a week with there “skill set” this frees up over half billion for pensions other services and also provides a more equitable social welfsre system. Pay in you get back dont pay in LIMITED help end of.
