JobKeeper and JobSeeker continue — but payments drop, eligibility tightens

JOBKEEPER and JobSeeker payments have been extended into next year but rates have been cut and the eligibility tightened.

The JobKeeper wage subsidy will continue until March 2021, but payments will fall from $1500 to $1200 a fortnight after September.

People working fewer than 20 hours a week will receive $750 a fortnight.

    I don't understand why would there be a spike in people requiring assistance in the incoming months when Jobseeker rates are still much higher then previous rates even after the reductions. There is also the opportunity to earn an extra $300 per fortnight without affecting the payments.
