For young people: If you have finished study but don’t have a job you must wait 6 months before you can get any income support. Then for 6 months you will be made to work 25 hours per week for the dole and then at the end of 6 months you will be cut off and left with no income once again.
If you need to see a doctor: Australia will no longer have universal healthcare and instead you will be forced to pay a $7 co-payment If you are a student: $4.2billion has been cut from students or university funding
If you are looking forward to the old age pension: You will now need to wait until you are 70 years old
If you are a single parent: Your payment will be reduced even further
Public schools, the environment, the ABC and SBS, and public servants have all also taken a hit.
But you don’t need to sit back and take it. You can take action to stop Tony Abbott’s brutal budget.
