, PM: Current financial aid for lockdowns ‘faster’ and ‘more effective’ than JobKeeper, The Nzuchi Times

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the reason JobKeeper has not been reintroduced is because it is “not the right solution for the problems we have now”, and the current financial scheme is “more effective”. “What we’re doing now is faster, it’s more effective, it’s more targeted, it’s getting help where it’s needed, far more quickly,” Mr Morrison said. He said the current outbreak is not across the entire country compared to when JobKeeper was introduced, and the situation calls for a more “focused effort”. “What we need now is the focused effort of where the need is right now, and so it can be turned on and off to the extent that we have outbreaks that occur. “JobKeeper was a great scheme but you don’t play last year’s grand final this year. You deal with this year’s challenges.”
