No Dignity in Cashless Welfare

Wednesday, 21 June 2017 - 8:30am to 9:00am

The Healthy Welfare Card is a Coalition Government policy that will forcibly restrict 80% of unemployed Australian’s Newstart entitlement to a VISA-style debit card under the pretext of preventing unemployed workers from buying alcohol and drugs.

On this week's show Owen Bennett  from the Australian Unemployed Workers Union Joins us by phone to discuss the cashless card program.

We also speak with Beth Vincent-Pietsch from the Community and Public Sector Union to discuss the Australian Public Sector Commission's remuneration report which shows an average gender pay gap of 8.6%.
