Your Stories

The Australian Unemployment Union encourages everyone who is unemployed or dependent on Centrelink to come forward and tell their story about what it is really like to live off Centrelink benefits.

While the mass media and the current right-wing government likes to paint the unemployed and people dependent on Centrelink as ‘job snobs’, ‘dole bludgers’, ‘leaners’ and the like, we need to make it clear that the problem is not with us – instead its with the failure of successive governments to adequately provide for the whole Australian population.

It’s time we set the record straight about unemployment and made clear whats really going on in Australia.

We need to give the general population a better idea of what it is to be unemployed, or be dependent on Centrelink benefits. They won’t get this form anywhere else in the media.

  1. REPLY;The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future itll do even better in those areas, but for now its a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPods strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  3. I must say, as very much as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a fantastic grasp to the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from extra than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so a lot. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your personal thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

  4. This is definitely a website that people need to get behind. The problem is, no one wants to do a huge deal of reading and not have something else to stimulate the mind. This is the internet, after all. Maybe if you added a video or two to emphasise your point. Ill stick around, FOR SURE. But, I dont know if others will.

    1. Am with AMP too, AMP don’t do anything to help me find a job , don’t return my calls, and don’t answer my emails. I would change JSP’s but I know I would only get the same service. The most painful thing is for me is that I got a casual job, but I don’t want to let my JSP know because the Government will pay them. I don’t think they deserve to be paid , when they didn’t find the job I did on top of that their client service stinks.
