Today’s Pro Bono news cartoon. The federal government has recently increased the participation requirements jobseekers must fulfil to continue their income support. In particular, this affects older jobseekers who now need to do more hours per fortnight PAID voluntary work. As a result they are cutting back on their (unpaid) volunteer hours – and searching for paid volunteer work – to meet the half paid/half unpaid requirement. In turn this significantly impacts charities and not-for-profits who rely on (unpaid) volunteers. Confused? For more about a getting-even-more-complex system see  Welfare Changes Causing Anxiety for Jobseekers on the Pro Bono website.
