Submission to Government : Federal budget 1992-93. /

by Sheen, Veronica | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 1992Description: 14 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The main challenge for the Government in framing trite— je ecxerarr~7Budget continues to be the need to reduce unemployment and to---—alleviate the hardship associated with the present high levels of unemployment. The 'One Nation' statement contained a recognition of the need for job creation and for economic recovery, and offered some important and positive responses to the recession. The Brotherhood of St Laurence supports the fiscal measures aimed to stimulate the economy which involve the planned provision of jobs through public works and a stimulus to industry. Over the next couple of months to the Budget the need for further fiscal stimulus should be carefully monitored. If the economy appears to be making little progress in coming out of the recession, further fiscal stimulation should be applied through a larger Budget deficit.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Towards a fair and decent social security system : submission to Senate inquiry into adequacy of the allowance system for jobseekers and others / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Horn, Michael.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2012Description: 33 p. PDF.Other title: BSL submission to the Senate inquiry into the adequacy of the allowance payment system.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Current Newstart and Youth Allowance levels are insufficient to enable individuals relying on those payments to live with dignity and security. They fail to keep jobseekers and other income support recipients out of poverty. They fail to guard against social exclusion and financial vulnerability. Current payment levels fail to enable individuals to access affordable housing and protect against homelessness and may in fact undermine broader efforts to facilitate transitions into paid employment. The present Newstart Allowance (NSA) falls short of community expectations within Australia and is extremely low compared to income support of jobseekers in other developed countries. Based on these assessments we argue that the level of Newstart and Youth Allowance (YA) fails to meet any reasonable test of adequacy.Availability: (1)
