Green Left Show #22: Stop the cashless welfare card, raise JobSeeker

May 8, 2022

The latest episode of the Green Left Show features: Hayden Patterson (accidental activist, Australian Council of Social Services board member, former president Australian Unemployed Workers Union), Amanda (Say No 7 Policy and legislation analysis) and Angela Carr (housing activist and Socialist Alliance candidate).

The episode focuses on what sort of safety net we need and examines the cashless welfare card, also known as the "Class Warfare Card", and the punishingly inadequate JobSeeker.
