, PM dismisses JobKeeper as response to lockdowns, The Nzuchi Times

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has dismissed JobKeeper as a response to the latest round of lockdowns across the country. Greater Sydney, Victoria and South Australia are all under extended lockdowns as the Delta variant of the coronavirus is present in new cases. “Again, you solve the problem with the policy responses that you need that’s in front of you,” Mr Morrison said. “I’m not trying to solve last year’s problem. That’s what JobKeeper solved. “I’m trying to solve the issues and provide the economic supports directly to individuals fast. You’ll recall that when we put JobKeeper in place, it took four to six weeks in order for the system to be rolled out. “I don’t have six weeks. I need to make sure that we’ve got $200 million out the door now. Which is exactly what we’ve done.”
