Sharing you story is an act of courage. It is also a hugely effective contribution to the movement for change. Sharing your story has all these effects:

  • it shows others who are feeling punished and humiliated they are not alone
  • it inspires others with techniques for dealing with job agencies
  • it reveals that the problems are the fault of government policy not of individuals
  • it decreases the stigma of unemployment, and reveals “dole bludger bashing” for the propaganda it is
  • it builds a movement of resistance and positive change
  • it helps the AUWU build its case to fight government policy

On our forum auwustories, you can share your story anonymously (if you prefer), read the stories of other people, and get support from others who know what it is like trying to survive under a dysfunctional “employment services” system, a de-funded Centrelink system, and shockingly low payment rates. The abuse and hardships experienced by thousands of Centrelink recipients every day is one of Australia’s worst kept secrets.

The public perception of social security recipients is twisted by the mass media and the Coalition government. They portray social security recipients as the problem. They reserve their worst lies and hate speech for the unemployed; stigmatizing unemployed workers as ‘job snobs’, ‘dole bludgers’, ‘leaners’ and so on.

They use this blame game to distract from the economic mismanagement of successive governments — some of which is intentional, such as a policy of minimum 5% unemployment, which is a debunked tool for managing inflation. They use this blame-game to turn employed workers who are feeling the pinch of insecure and casualised work against unemployed workers. And they use this blame game to cover their destruction of our social security safety net.

In fact, this country can afford dignified social security and employment for all who need it.

Sharing your story will help bust the myths about unemployed workers, and reveal what’s really going on in Australia.

  1. Do not accept jobs from employers or job provider company’s that do not meet Australian award conditions. This is a rule of centrelink.

    1. RIGHT NOW – DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH

      FILL IN CONTACT FORMS ON MP WEBSITES, MEDIA, ANYWHERE AND DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH

      1. IF LABOUR CARED WHY HAVE THE LEFT PEOPLE TO BE ABUSED - THE TAKE ON EVERYTHING ELSE BUT HAVE LEFT UNEMPLOYED TO BE ABUSED says:

        IF LABOUR CARED WHY HAVE THEY LEFT UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE TO ROT AND BE ABUSED AND BECOME WORKERS TO THE COMMUNITY SERVICE PROVIDERS THEY KNOW ARE ABUSIVE TOO. THEY ARE BEHIND ALOT OF THE COMMUNITY SERVICE ABUSE GROUPS – SO WHY ARE THEY NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT PLACES LIKE THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES AND DOCS AND OTHER AREAS THAT HAVE BEEN LEFT TO ABUSE PEOPLE AND PEOPLE LEFT TO ROT. THEY KNOW THIS BUT JUST ATTACK THE LIBERALS OVER POPULAR AREAS WHERE THEY WILL GET MEDIA AIR PLAY.

        DO NOT WAIT FOR LABOUR AS FAR AS CAN BE SEEM ALL THEY PLAN TO DO IS TALK TO THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ABOUT ….WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE UNEMPLOYED. TO ASK THEM. NOT THE UNEMPLOYED, NOT CLOSE THEM DOWN, BUT THEY PLAN TO MEET AND GREET AND ALL THAT STUFF WITH THE IMPORTANT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES, THEY HAVE FALLEN FOR THEM, THEY THINK THESE GROUPS ARE IMPORTANT AND ARE DOING SOMETHING. THAT IS AS FAR AS KNOWN ALL THEY WILL DO. JUST THE SAME. THEY ARE PLANNING TO TALK TO THE JOB SEARCH PROVIDERS ABOUT WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE UNEMPLOYED AND TO GET THEM TO DO MORE. THEY ARE ALREADY TAKING UP ALL THE TIME AND NOW MONEY OF THE UNEMPLOYED AND WE HEARD THAT LABOUR ARE GOING TO TRY TO… GET THEM TO DO MORE.. THEY JUST NEED TO GO.

        1. ARE RUSSO REALLY BEHIND IT ALL – WITH TONY ABBOT AND JOE HOCKY THAT BLOKE WAS IN CHARGE OF ALL THIS DEPARTMENTS

      2. Girls go for these employment agency jobs to con a rich big time office professional to marry them so they don't have to work - they are not interested in careers these girls, just getting a rich man from it, to impress a rich man to not work says:

        Who are these bastards, was not like this a decade ago. It is SArina Russo/Tony Abbot and that one who is in America, you know whats his name the lebo guy. our children are effected by this horrible taking advantage of people. We don’t need this, they trap people, do not help but just take us for a ride, they are taking advantage of children, young people who need support. We have to help the young people. We really have to help them image what this must do to young people, our kids, this ruins them and they won’t know any different. We know different, that it should not be like this, that not have a job is just sort normal at times, it is not against the law. They are treating people who loss their job or are looking for work, kids, like they have committed a crime. This is not good and it was never like this when we were younger. You have to stop it for the young ones at least. Imagine what these places are doing to the young peoples dreams and knowledge of the work force if they think it is like this. I mean there are some yukky jobs but nothing as bad as these glorified employment agencies. They are really corrupted, this is corruption it is not the work force. If it was they would have been looked into by now. So what are we going to do, Labor might not care less if they thing these employment places are good, it is not true they are bad and do not find people jobs, they just make it look like they do. They blaming unemployment on people on Newstart, They are making out it is the person on welfare, but it is not, there are no jobs in some places and who can afford to live in the places that have most of the big jobs. You are hardly going to get a big job if they know the young ones are on the working payment. COME ON WE HAVE TO GET IT HAPPENING FOR THE YOUNG ONES. Protest have to happen they are not listen have turned Australian people against the people who can’t find jobs. WHERE IS THE MEDIA SUPPORTING PEOPLE IN NEED, WHERE IS THE MEDIA FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THIS BAD MEDIA ABOUT PEOPLE ON THE DOLE, IT CAN’T BE TRUE. It is not true, we have had to fill in Centrelink forms and you can’t get away with anything. So what is it about, it is, must be these employment agency places – when we were young there where no, NONE OF THIS, NO EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES AT ALL AND THERE WAS NOT UNEMPLOYMENT MUCH. Why is there unemployment now, it is caused by all these employment agencies and human resourses departments. All they want are the good looking younger people from the rich areas and they don’t go on your trade or experience any more. That is all the employers get or see are the onese that impress them, not on skills, and work experience. WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER THERE WERE NO HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT, NO SUCH THING AS EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES, NO JOB SEARCH AND ALL THAT WITH DEPARTMENT, AND THERE WAS NO YUNEMPLOYMENT, UNEMPLOYMENT GOT BAD WHEN ALL THIS CAME IN. If all the money that pays all these people suppose to be employing people went to make real jobs the only ones on the dole would be all these awful human resources people and employment agency people. When we left school it was starting to come in and girls I went to school with got those jobs because no one else wanted to do that, they were the horrible girls at school and only did it until they got a guy to marry them or because they could not get any other jobs that made them look really big time. They were horrible and low life girls who would go for these jobs when this came in and only because they could not get other big time jobs, other than those, it was like a choice between that or bar maid maybe but even they are nicer. Or mostly they did it to look big time and good to get a rich guy so they could just have kids and not work ever again. Most of the girls I knew who like these human resources jobs all of them were just doing it to snag a big time guy, because these jobs made them look, well big in the business world where the rich men were. That is why they went for these jobs, they could not care less about employment or getting people jobs, they just did it to get rich big time corporate men, like lawyers or CEOs or Manager, so they could have children and never work, they did it to not work. They never wanted careers just to grab a rich man. THE GIRLS I KNEW GOT THOSE JOBS TO GET IN WEALTHY BIG OFFICE GUYS. SO WHY ARE THEY EVEN ALLOWED TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE WHAT CAREER TO DO, THEY DO NOT WANT PROPER JOBS OR PATHWAYS, JUST TO LOOK BIG TIME TO GET A BIG TIME MAN AND NEVER HAVE TO WORK. THAT IS REALLY WHAT THE GIRLS I KNOW AND KNOW ABOUT DO THIS FOR. THE MEN WOULD NOT GET BIG TIME JOBS THEMSELVES SO END UP IN THAT HUMAN RESOURCES, EMPLOYMENT PLACES AREA OF THE WORK FORCE. THEY ARE THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL WITH REGARDS TO THE OFFICE AREA, THEY WANT TO BE THE BIG TIME GUYS BUT WOULD NEVER LAST A WEEK, EXCEPT BY UNDERMINING ALL THE OTHERS, WHO MIGHT NOT BE SO POWERLESS AS THE UNEMPLOYED AND SO DISINTERTESTED IT SEEMS AS TO policiticans and those who should be doing something about this.. I MEAN DO SOMETHING PLEASE AT LEAST FOR THE YOUNGER ONES IT IS DESTROYING THEIR DREAMS AND IMPRESSIONS OF THE WORK FORCE. PLEASE

      3. WHILE IT IS GREAT TO SEE STORIES ON CURRENT AFFAIR ABOUT THE DISGUSTING TREATMENT OF PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK PAYMENTS, WE DO NOT WANT TO LOOSE CENTRELINK – JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE TRYING TO TAKE OVER CENTRELINK, IT IS THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES THAT ARE DESTROYING EVERYTHING. CENTRELINK OR WHAT USE TO BE THE CES WHERE GOOD. TOUGH BUT FAIR, IT IS ONLY SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THESE SO CALLED EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES BEING GIVEN CONTRACTS AND POWER OF PEOPLE ON BENEFITS THAT THINGS HAVE BECOME HORRIFIC.

        PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET STORIES IF POSSIBLE OR THE FIGURES ETC REGARDING WHO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES PROFITEER OFF THE UMEMPLOYED. HOW THEY MAKE MONEY FROM MAKING PEOPLE DO WORK FOR THE DOLE AND OTHER UNPAID ACTIVITIES, HOW THEY DO NOTHING THAT PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES COULD DO, BUT PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PEOPLE SOCIAL STATUS OR CONTROL THEIR PAYMENTS. HOW THEY DO NOTHING, HOW ALL THIS MONEY GOES TO THEM AND THEIR OFFICES, COMPANY CARS ETC, THE BILLIONS THAT GO TO JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH RATHER THAN JOB CREATION WITH EXISTING ORGANISATIONS, HELPING PEOPLE IN FINANCIAL STRESS, EMERGENCIES OR INCREASING PAYMENTS. GET STORIES, FIGURES ETC OUT THERE ABOUT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES – HOW THEY EXPECT YOU TO SPEND ALL WEEK LOOKING FOR JOBS YOU CANNOT EVEN APPLY FOR IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CRITERIA TO EVEN APPLY BECAUSE WE ARE FORCED TO DO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR OTHER THINGS. HOW THEY ARE JUST UNNECESSARY, ABUSIVE, LIAR, CHEATS, PLEASE DO NOT BLAME CENTRELINK TOO MUCH, PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND OR KNOW ABOUT THESE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES… THE ATTENTION MUST BE PUT ON THEM, WE DO NOT WANT THEM TO TAKE OVER CENTRELINK OR GET RID OF CENTRELINK.. THAT WOULD BE THE END. ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOBACTIVE/JOB SEARCH AGENCIES NOW!

      4. what a joke this job net work providers are.must be good money for these providers because we at Noarlunga have more Job net providers than we have fast food in the area…..its all a big scam at the unemployed’s expence. 1 big scam ,,,,yes for a royal commission

    3. WHAT ARE LABOUR OR LIBERAL DOING WITH REGARDS TO NEWSTART AND OTHER WELFARE – TELL THEM PEOPLE WILL EXPOSE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES FOR THE CROOKS THEY ARE IF THEY DO NOT GET RID OF THEM NOW AND PUT UP THE WELFARE BENEFITS.

      THEY KNOW THAT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE REALLY BAD, BUT WILL NOT ADMIT HOWEVER THEY KNOW THEY ARE JUST CROOKED. EXPOSE THE FACT THAT BOTH LABOUR AND LIBERLA KNOW JOB SEARCH ETC ARE OUT OF TOUCH AND DISGUSTING CROOKS, AND THE GOVERNMENT BOTH SIDES KNOW THIS BUT LEAVE PEOPLE TO BE ABUSED BY THEM. THEY NEED TO SHUT THEM DOWN NOW AND PUT UP BENEFITS NOW, THEY KNOW THIS BUT ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING BECAUSE WE DO NOT MATTER, THEY DO NOT CARE BUT KNOW THAT THE ABUSE OF UNEMPLOYED, DISABILITIES IS HORRIF. EXPOSE THEM

      JOB SEACH AGENCIES ARE CORRUPTING CENTRELINK AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES – DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THIS SITUATION BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE, IF IT IS NOT ALREADY, OBVIOUSLY THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE DEPARMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, TWO MINISTER HAVE RESIGNED AND THERE IS NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS, DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION

      IT IS TIME THAT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES BECAME ANSWERABLE TO THE UNEMPLOYED, THE PUBLIC, THE TAX PAYER AND EVEN HONESTLY TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR WHAT THEY ARE REALLY DOING TO THE UNEMPLOYED, USING AND ABUSING THE UNEMPLOYED OR PARTLY EMPLOYED EVEN.
      ASK YOURSELVES THESE QUESTIONS. IT IS TIME TO QUESTION THESE SO CALLED JOB SEARCH AGENCIES.
      HOW DO THESE DECEITFUL ORGANISATIONS MAKE THEIR MONEY, HOW DO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES GET THE POWER OVER PEOPLE IN NEED TO STOP THEIR WELFARE MONEY, NEWSTART ALLOWANCE AND OTHER BENFITS THAT COMES FROM THE TAX PAYER FOR PEOPLE IN NEED.
      ALSO WHY DO THESE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES CONSTANTLY SUSPEND AND STOP THE ONLY MONEY SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMING IN, WHY DO THEY STOP THIS MONEY, LEAVING PEOPLE WITHOUT ANY MONEY TO BUY FOOD, PAY RENT, OR PAY BILLS, FOR NO REASON REALLY.
      IF PEOPLE CANNOT FIND THEIR OWN JOBS WHERE DO THESE DESPOTS GET MORE JOBS FROM – THE ANSWER TO THAT ONE IS THEY TAKE THEM FROM THE PAPERS OR WEBSITES, OR THEY GET THEM BEFORE THEY ARE ADVERTISED, THE BAD ONES, ACTUALLY STOPPING PEOPLE LOOKING FOR JOBS AND THEREFORE INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT. THEY CAN ALSO JUST KEEP THESE JOBS FOR THEIR MATES ETC.
      NICE OFFICES AND SUITS ARE JUST THAT FOR SOME PEOPLE – BUT IT FOOLS A LOT OF PEOPLE. WHO PAYS FOR THEIR PLUSH OFFICES, EQUIPMENT, TRAVEL, MOTELS, COMPANY PERKS ETC, IT IS THE MONEY FROM THE TAX PAYER MEANT TO GO TO SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO ARE UNEMPLOYED.
      WHAT DO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ACTUALLY DO… NOTHING.
      HOW DO PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK MONEY MEANT FOR PEOPLE IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS, HOW TO PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK AFFORD TO GO TO WORK FOR THE DOLE THREE TIMES A WEEK OR TO UNPAID ACTIVITIES, THINGS THAT WILL INDENTIFY THEM AS UNEMPLOYED ON AN APPLICATION.
      TO EVEN GO TO THE SHOPS ENDS UP COSTING PEOPLE AT LEAST $20.00, BUY THE TIME YOU PAY FOR FOOD OR SHOES OR JACKETS, BAGS AND CLOTHES YOU NEED TO BE ACCEPTED EVEN IN SOCIETY OR TO TRAVEL ON EVEN PUBLIC TRANSPORT EVEN WITH A CONCESSION.
      SO PEOPLE WHO GET NO MORE THAN BETWEEN $240 – $360 DOLLARS A WEEK MOSTLY HAVE TO THEN SPEND AT LEAST $40.00 TO $100 OR MORE DOLLARS GOING TO UNNECESSARY, UNPAID OCCUPATIONS THAT ARE NOT PAID FOR. THE “DOLE” IS NOT EVEN ENOUGH TO PAY FOR MOST PEOPLES FOOD AND ELECTRICITY LET ALONE RENT AND OTHER NECESSITIES.

      PEOPLE ON THE “DOLE” ARE ALSO NOW EXPECTED TO HAVE MOBILE PHONES, INTERNET CONNECTIONS AS WELL AS LANDLINES ETC. SO IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES. WHILE IT DOES MAKE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE ON PAYMENTS IN SOME WAYS THEY SHOULD NOT BE AUTOMATICALLY “EXPECTED” TO HAVE THESE EXTRA COSTS.

      PEOPLE ON CENTRELIN BENEFITS GET BETWEEN $240-$370 DOLLARS A WEEK, AND CAN ONLY HAVE ABOUT $5,000 IN THE BANK, AND MAYBE SOME ASSETS BUT THIS MONEY IS CUT BACK IF ANY ASSET MAKES MONEY. A PERSON HOUSE VALUE MAY BE USED BUT THERE REALLY ARE NO HOUSES AT THIS PRICE ANY MORE, EVEN IN REGIONAL AREAS.

      CENTRELINK CHECKS ARE SO THOROUGH AND RUTHLESS THAT IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE CHEATING THE SYSTEM. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CHEAT THE SYSTEM, IT COULD NOT HAPPEN REALLY.

      SO WHERE IS ALL THE MONEY REALLY GOING. WHY ARE THE GOVERNMENT SAYING THAT MORE AND MORE MONEY IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT PEOPLE IN NEED, AND IT IS THE PEOPLE ON NEWSTART THEY BLAME, VICTIMISE AND ACCUSE OF CHEATING AND LIEING AND BEING BLUDGERS

      HOWEVER ALL THE MONEY HAS NOT GONE TO PEOPLE ON BENEFITS, NEWSTART ETC OR DISABIITY PENSION. THIS HAS NOT CHANGED, AND IF THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE ON THESE BENEFIT THEN THAT IS BECAUSE THE POPULATION HAS INCREASED AND LACK OF JOBS. IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF PEOPLE IN NEED.

      BUT WHERE IS THE REAL INCREASE IN MONEY BEING SPEND – JOB SEARCH AGENCIES. THERE ARE NOW THOUSANDS OF THESE PLACES COSTLY BILLIONS SETTING UP EVERYWHERE. WHAT DO THEY DO. NOTHING. ALSO THEY NOT ONLY DO NOTHING THEY ARE STEALING THE MONEY MEANT TO GO TO PEOPLE IN NEED AND PROFITEERING FROM PEOPLE IN NEED.

      JOB SEARCH AGENCIES DO NOT CARE ABOUT EMPLOYMENT ALL THEY DO IS SET TARGET TO MAKE MONEY. WHAT ARE THESE TARGETS. GETTING PEOPLE INTO WORK FOR DOLE AND FULL TIME JOBS THAT DO NOT EXIST, SO THEY GET BONUSES AND COMMISSION FROM PEOPLE IN NEED. JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE PARASITES THAT LIVE OFF PEOPLE IN NEED AND MAKE THEIR MONEY BY MAKING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYABLE, WHO IS GOING TO EMPLOY SOMEONE HAS TO SAY TO AN EMPLOYER, “I AM A WILLING PARTICIPANT IN WORK FOR THE DOLE” OR I DO VOLUNTEER WORK, OR I SPEND MY DAYS WRITING A RESUME EVEN THOUGH I AM UNEMPLOYED. I MEAN WHAT ARE PEOPLE ON NEWSTART SUPPOSE TO PUT ON A RESUME IF THEY ARE KEPT UNEMPLOYED WRITING RESUMES SO THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES GET MONEY FROM MAKING THEM DO THAT ALL DAY ALL WEEK.

      JOB SEARCH AGENCIES HAVE PLUSH OFFICES, COMPANY CARS, EMPLOY NEW PEOPLE IN THE AREAS THEY GO TO FROM THEIR OWN PLACES. THEY GO TO PLACES WHERE UNEMPLOYMENT IS HIGH, WHERE THERE ARE NO FULL TIME JOBS, ON PURPOSE, BLAMING THE UNEMPLOYED AND FORCE THEM ONTO WORK FOR THE DOLE, SO THEY GET THE BONUSES. THEY GET BONUSES FOR FORCING BRUTUALLY ANY WAY THEY CAN, LIEING, CHEATING, BREAKING THE RULES THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO FOLLOW, SUSPENDING PEOPLE ONLY MONEY COMING IN TO ABUSE THEM INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR OTHER UNPAID ACTIVITIES COSTLY THE PERSON ON BENEFITS UPWARDS OF SIXTY DOLLARS A WEEK INTO THINGS THAT WILL KEEP THEM UNEMPLOYED AND/OR FORCE THEN ONTO THE STREETS, OR OUT OF THEIR MAYBE AFFORDABLE ACCOMMODATRION TO CITIES TO FIND FULL TIME WORK. HOW ARE THEY SUPPOSE TO COMPETE AND GO FROM UNEMPLOYED TO FULL TIME WORK.

      THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES MAKE NO MONEY FROM PEOPLE DOING CASUAL OR PART-TIME OR SELF EMPLOYMENT, THEREFORE THEY ARE…. THE ARE… FORCING PEOPLE ON BENEFITS OUT OF PART-TIME, CASUAL AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT, FORCING THEM TO GIVE THIS UP TO DO WORK FOR THE DOLE. THE ONLY WAY THEY MAY GET FULL TIME WORK IS THROUGH LESSER WORK, BUT JOB SEARCH ARE FORCING PEOPLE TO GIVE THIS UP BASICALLY TO DO UNPAID ACTIVITIES THEY CANNOT AFFORD, THAT MAKE THEM UNEMPLOYABLE, SO THEY GET COMMISSIONS, BONUSES AND CONGRATUALTIONS FOR BEING SO BRUTAL A ABUSIVE FROM THE GOVERNMENT IT SEEMS, WHO THINK THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING TO GET DOLE BLUDGERS INTO SOMETHING, BUT IT IS THAT THERE ARE NO JOBS FULL TIME OUTSIDE MAIN CITIES MOSTLY AND THAT PEOPLE CANNOT AFFORD THESE DAYS TO MOVE TO MAIN CITIES
      IT IS A RORT AND VERY VERY BAD. THERE MUST BE A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES COMMISSIONED BY THE SO CALLED DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS, A DEPARTMENT THAT ITSELF COULD NOT RUN A TUCK SHOP. IT IS A RORT THAT IS DESTROYING PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK. ALL THIS MONEY SHOULD BE GOING TO CREATE MORE JOBS AT EXISTING PLACES IN PLACES OF HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT, TO EDUCATION FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED IN, PEOPLE FROM AREAS OF LOW INCOME, SUPPORT FOR ELECTRICITY AND TECHNOLOGY TO HELP PEOPLE AND HELP THEM LOOK FOR WORK THEMSELVES.

      JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE BASICALLY TAKING OVER THE LIVES OF PEOPLE ON NEWSTART AND USING AND ABUSING THEM TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF – CENTRELINK AND THE GOVERNMENT ARE FOOLED BY THEM OR DO NOT CARE AND ARE BEING CORRUPTED BY THEM. CENTRELINK IS OK, AND USE TO BE QUITE GOOD, BUT BASICALLY PEOPLE TAX PAYER MONEY IS BEING TAKEN BY THIS RORT. STOP BLAMING PEOPLE IN NEED AND GET A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES.

      ASK YOURSELF WHY THESE PLACES NEED TO EXIST ANYWAY, WHY CAN’T PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK JUST GO TO PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES AND BE JUDGED ON THEIR SKILLS OR WHATEVER, NOT THEIR INCOME LEVEL. DOES IT MATTER PEOPLE ARE ON EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, WHY DOES THAT MAKE THEM BAD PEOPLE, THEY ARE MOSTLY JUST PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK.
      CALL FOR A ROYAL COMMISSION IN TO THE JOB ACTIVE/DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS BUT MOSTLY THEIR ARMY OF RORTERS AND ABUSERS – JOB SEARCH AGENCIES. THIS MUST STOP!!!! THEY MUST BE STOPPED. ASK YOURSELF WHY THESE DESPOTS ARE GIVEN CONTROL OVER PEOPLE IN NEEDS BENEFITS, WHY ARE THE WORST SO CALLED EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES GIVEN THE POWER TO STOP THE PAYMENTS TO PEOPLE IN NEED, AND THIS IS BECAUSE IN ESSENCE THEY MAY NOT BE DOING EVERYTHING TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES, WHICH IS NOW HOW THEY SYSTEM IS SET UP. IS THAT A REASON TO STOP THE ONLY MONEY PEOPLE IN NEED GET – AND WHEN DOING THAT MAKES THEM WORSE OFF, DESTITUTE AND MORE UNEMPLOYABLE.

      DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THE GOVERNMENT FUNDED AND TENDERED JOB SEARCH SECTOR. IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS RORT AND HAS TO BE STOPPED NOW, BEFORE THEY TAKE OVER THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES. WHICH WILL MAKE THIS COUNTRY AS BAD AS A THIRD WORLD DICTATORSHIP THAT ENSLAVES AND BASICALLY KILLS OFF PEOPLE IN NEED OR WHO ARE POOR.

      CALL FOR A ROYAL COMMISSION NOW, AND WHAT IF THEY TAKE OVER DOCS AND AREAS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY WHO CANNOT FIGHT BACK OR THE MONEY MEANT FOR CHILDREN. IT IS AS BAD AS IT GETS AND IS CORRUPTING CENTRELINK EVEN. IT MUST BE STOPPED NOW!!!!

      JOBSEARCH/JOBACTIVE NEED TO STOP MAKING US ANSWERABLE TO THEM – AND THE NEED TO ANSWER TO US.
      WHO PAYS THEM AND WHAT FOR
      WHY ARE THEY GOING TO RURAL AREAS TO FORCE PEOPLE INTO FULL-TIME JOBS WHEN THEY KNOW THERE ARE NO JOBS IN RURAL AREAS.
      WHY ARE PEOPLE BEING FORCED INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE AND ACTIVITIES WHEN OBVIOUSLY THIS TAKES THEM AWAY FROM APPLYING FOR JOBS. A DECENT APPLICATION TAKES AT LEAST A DAY, HOW CAN YOU DO WORK FOR THE DOLE, ATTEND APPOINTMENTS AND LOOK/APPLY FOR UPTO 20 JOBS A MONTH, ESPECIALLY WHEN IN AREAS OUTSIDE A MAIN CBD THERE ARE NOT EVEN 20 JOBS ADVERTISED.
      ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSE TO THEN BE ABLE TO MOVE AND AFFORD PLACES IN THE MAIN CITIES, AFTER MOVING FROM AREAS OUTSIDE THE MAIN CITY WITH NO JOBS. HOW ARE THEY SUPPOSE TO DO THAT THESE DAYS WITH PRICES FOR ACCOMMODATION SO EXPENSIVE NOW IN MAJOR CITIES WHERE THEIR MIGHT BE FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT. MAYBE.
      HOW ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSE TO GO FROM WORK FOR THE DOLE TO FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT IN A MAJOR CITY EVEN IF ALL THE OTHER APPLICANTS THERE ARE WORKING, HAVE IMPRESSIVE JOBS AND QUALIFICATIONS.
      WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO EMPLOY A PERSON WHO HAS DONE WORK FOR THE DOLE AND HAS THAT ON THEIR RESUME, IN ANY JOB LET ALONE A FULL-TIME JOB.
      WE DEMAND ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS.
      WE DEMAND THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS.
      WHO ARE THEY ANYWAY. WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO TAKE CONTROL OF OUR LIVES AND MAKE UP THEIR OWN RULES – WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED ACCESS TO OUR PRIVATE INFORMATION, THEY ARE JUST EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES AREN’T THEY? WHO ARE THEY, WHERE DO THEY COME FROM. ARE THEY THE WORST OF THE PRIVATE AGENCIES WHO CAN’T GET WORK, BUT CAN GET CONTRACTS WITH OR THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES.
      IF SO WHY ARE THEY BASICALLY ABDUCTING US INTO THIS SYSTEM, WHY CAN WE NOT JUST BE LEFT ALONE TO GO TO SUCCESSFUL EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES. WHY ARE WE FORCED TO GO TO THE WORST JOB AGENCIES THAT CAN ONLY SURVIVE BY GETTING CONTRACT THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES WHO WOULD NOT NO THE FIRST THING ABOUT EMPLOYING PEOPLE IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR OR WHATEVER.
      JOB ACTIVE JOB SEARCH IT SEEMS ARE JUST THE WORST OF THE PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES, IS THIS RIGHT, PEOPLE WHO THEMSELVES CANNOT FIND EMPLOYMENT, AND HAVE TO GO TO THE GOVERNMENT TO GET AN INCOME, BUT THEY HAVE TO SURVIVE BY RIPPING OFF NOT ONLY THE GOVERNMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES BY TELLING THEM THEY ARE DOING A GOOD JOB, BUT ALSO DOING THIS BY ATTACKING AND CONTROLLING VULNERABLE PEOPLE AND BASCIALLY IMPRISONING THEM AND KEEPING THEM DOWN AND SILENT SO THEY CAN MAKE MONEY, TO THEMSELVES BE EMPLOYED.
      IS THAT RIGHT… AND WHAT DO THEY GET PAID FOR, WHO PAYS THEM. IT MUST BE THE GOVERNMENT, THEREFORE THEY ARE NOT A PRIVATE SECTOR, THEY ARE NOT PRIVATE ORGANISATIONS. WHAT DO THEY GET PAID FOR, THEY APPARENTLY GET COMMISSION OR SOMETHING FOR HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY BRUTALLY FORCE INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR FULL-TIME RELIANCE ON THEM. THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN DO THIS OR JUSTIFY THIS IS TO MAKE OUT PEOPLE ON THEIR BOOKS, ARE BAD, LAZY, STUPID, OR CRIMINALS AND THEY WILL DO OR SAY ANYTHING TO JUSTIFY KEEPING PEOPLE DOWN AND MAKING THEM LOOK LIKE THIS OR EVEN INTO THIS. IS THAT A JOB
      WE WANT ANSWER AND WE WANT THEM NOW, NOT WHEN THE ELECTION HAPPENS OR WHEN EVER, WE WANT THESE PLACES TO ANSWER TO US, THE UNEMPLOYED, AND TO THE PUBLIC, WHOSE MONEY WE SUSPECT THEY ARE LIVING VERY WELL OFF BY LIVING VERY WELL OFF THE UNEMPLOYED

  2. The basics card for long term unemployed, mandatory if you live in the NT but not Vic, WA, NSW, most of SA and Qld. That’s mandatory discrimination by law!!! And it’s not like the NT has the most jobs per capita to go around.

  3. was requesting two thing one was $167 pair of safety boots by medical advice and renewal of my security license $284 told by mission australia at elizabeth office south australia i would get either item by case manager 1 how much are we issue to be spent on per person i am stream3 cording centre link thier only spend $70 which fell out size range store didn’t have them in my size only totally work gear

    1. Good , isn’t it Ian ? I live 25 km from Childers ( nearest Town . The Salvation Army Know that I need my Car registered to get a job . They bought me a Bloody Car Battery 2 Weeks ago ! That is the Mentality of these Bastards.They now advertised that I am Job Ready ! It’s so easy to come up with the 750 dollars that I need to register the Car .I’d like to see Turdbull survive for 6 months on Newstart.I’m eating Noodles most Weeks .Oh , and my Providers are also upset because I refuse to sign their little ” Job Plan ” saying that they are providing me with all the assistance needed to get a job . They’re not . I may as well be living 30 miles out to sea on a bloody Raft !

      1. I have never understood the need for compulsory fortnightly attendance at these agencies. In my opinion, if the government wants to contact us, they can phone. Why should I have to fork out for the petrol (or if I’m not feeling well, why should my family member or friend fork out for the petrol) to get me ~ 20km?

          1. FILL IN CONTACT FORMS ON MP WEBSITES, MEDIA, ANYWHERE AND DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH

          2. PLEASE – DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH

            FILL IN CONTACT FORMS ON MP WEBSITES, MEDIA, ANYWHERE AND DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH

          3. PLEASE – DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH

            DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB ACTIVE/JOB SEARCH, MAKE A COMMITMENT TO CONTACT 10 ORGANISATIONS AND DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB SEARCH, CONTACT 10 MPS ANON ON CONTACT FORMS BY PHONE, CONTACT YOUR LOCAL MP, LOCAL COUNCIL, CHANNEL NINE, SEVEN, ABC, THEY ALL HAVE CONTACT FORMS. CONTACT THE TODAY SHOW AND SUNRISE THEY HAVE CONTACT FORMS. TELL A CURRENT AFFAIR YOUR STORIES, ANON IF BEST – THEY HAVE A WEB FORM YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR NAME BUT IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DO IT MAY GET THROUGH HOW HORRIFIC JOB SEARCH AND JOB ACTIVE ARE. IT MUST BE STOPPED, AUSTRALIA CANNOT ALLOW THIS EVIL TO TORTURE POOR PEOPLE AND USE THEM TO MAKE THEMSELVES POWERFUL AND RICH. THEY ARE JUST EVIL PURE EVIL- JOB SEARCH AND JOB ACTIVE ARE PURE EVIL. HOW CAN THEY DO THIS TO POOR PEOPLE, AND CENTRELINK ARE BEING INFLUENCED BY THEM, THEY USE TO BE OK BUT ARE INFLUENCED BY THIS EVIL CURSE THAT IS JOB SEARCH/JOB ACTIVE.

        1. I couldn’t agree more. And it’s not as if they actually DO anything. I live 60kms from the ‘Job Provider’. The only thing they provide is money for their own coffers. I can practically her the Ca’ching when I walk in the door, every fortnight. To add insult to injury I am with a DES provider, if I was with job active I could do 5 hours a week voluntary work and see them once or twice a year (I’m over 60).

    2. They can make copious withdrawals from the Fund whenever they feel that there is a net gain on the return of that investment. IE whether your chances of gaining work from the purchase(s) is high enough to warrant the withdrawal(s). Wasn’t this way under the system it replaced, despite the same eligibility rules being in place. They obviously feel that they won’t see a return on such an investment for you, which – being privately owned – they are allowed to use as an excuse for not spending the allocated money on you.

    1. Thanks Jenny for this. Much appreciated. Hate to push it but if it´s been updated can I have that too.

    2. AUSTRALIANS CANNOT STAND FOR THIS ABUSE BY JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH AGENCIES.
      EMAIL, PHONE, PUT UP POSTERS ANON IF NECESSARY, CONTACT THE MEDIA, LOCAL AND FEDERAL MPS,

  4. Wondering if other jobseekers are having issues with Job Services Australia providers.
    Mine have just put me through a motivation and follow up reverse marketing course. What a disaster! Lack of available jobs/opportunities, discrimination, pathetic attitudes of employers, constant rejections, are the problems rather than motivation. But the reverse marketing is utter crap! We had to provide a list of 10 companies we would like to work for, problem is when you or so called reverse marketing expert calls them, there are no positions available etc. Companies are downsizing these days, not hiring hordes of people. Us jobseekers already know this anyway. Waste of time and counterproductive. I am fed up with dealing with these Job Services Australia imbeciles. They understand nothing and just keep putting jobseekers through the same old unworkable process. What a scam!

  5. Been applying for for 20-40 jobs a week since I got on centrelink in May 2014 and I’ve had no luck. I was a straight A student whose parents split up in late 2012 and had to live with my mother. She began dating a psychopath who would beat me up for any reason under the sun. I realised my only options were suicide or centrelink so I applied and it took over a year before they accepted my claim. This was because I needed to get a third party to fill out an unreasonable to live at home form. They told me it couldn’t be a friend of mind and had to be someone like a teacher or family friend. Considering I aced school you might assume I got along with my teachers but it was quite the opposite. I never once had a good teacher and would literally sleep through school because it was so easy(boring).

    It wasn’t until I got lucky and was brutally beaten up a day before a centrelink appointment that I was finally able to get approved by the system. They even tried to deny me when I had dried blood all over my face. I had to beg the lady and start crying before she decided to speak to one of their social workers who took one glance at me then said I’ll be accepted. Both myself and my mother were told that I should have gotten centrelink when I first applied for it a year prior but they took no accountability and refused to back-pay me a single cent.

    What makes matters worse is that I originally had about $6000 in savings when I first applied for centrelink in Feb 2013 but this disappeared quickly when I moved out for 6 months. I was a student at the time and had hoped that centrelink would accept me so that I could continue my studies in a non-abusive environment. When my life savings had all been used to pay for rent, bills and food I was forced to move back to the abusive environment or become homeless. When I was finally approved 9 months later(May 2014) it was not as a student but as a job seeker. I really did want a job and decided to give it my best knowing that I could always return to university and remain on centrelink.

    So this is when centrelink stopped being such a thorn in my ass and max employment took over. At first I was on level 1 and it was okay but I’d only worked casual jobs so I had a lot to learn about the job industry. They taught me nothing and the more I requested help the more of a deterrent they became. So I stopped trying to get any help from them and tried to be grateful that such an incompetent agency only wanted me to come in once a month. It wasn’t until a couple months ago when I moved suburbs that they moved me up to level 2. At this point I was shocked and appalled by the system in place and had decided to just get a casual or part-time job and return to university. Once I got my acceptance email I notified both centrelink and max employment and was told that I would be switched to student youth allowance on the day I start university. For some reason this was when max employment decided to gear things up a notch. They started dragging me in for 3h resume writing seminars and 2h of job searching per week on their slow computers. This inhibited my ability to look for work and killed most of the motivation I had left. They then decided to drag me in for physical/psychological assessments which they admit was a mistake yet still force me to attend. I’ve told them many times that I’m going back to uni in less than a month yet they keep adding more compulsory appointments for me to attend. It’s absurd that I’m being forced to jump through their hoops when it does not benefit me in any way.

    In the end the one good thing that has come from these appointments is when I saw an advertisement on their job board requesting temporary staff to help pack flowers during next week(valentines day). Out of my own accord I took it to the only person in the entire office who seems to give a shit and asked for the position. Initially he told me that the employer only wanted girls for the role but I remarked about how it doesn’t seem like a gender-based role and that seemed to change his mind. I now have 30 hours of work lined up for me next week but I’d really prefer a stable part-time job.

    1. Well done Josh. thanks for sharing your story . If anybody else is reading this a local Community Health Centre possibly could verify the unreasonable to live at home form. Also people can phone up the Centrelink complaints line – wait on hold for 2 hours – then ask to be transferred to a Call Centre Social Worker who can arrange the unable to live at home verification – possibly while you are on the phone. Phone from a call box or landline to save you phone battery.

      1. Beware of local Community Health Centres, they are the “health” care version of JobSearch Agencies.

        You can go to them and be put into a psychitric ward if they so decide. Or if someone in you vicinity wants to get at you they can get these evil idiots on side and commit you to a psy ward, where you will be medicated and your life taken away from you.

        COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES ARE NOT COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES. THEY ARE NOT SET UP BY THE COMMUNITY, THEY DO NOT CARE LESS, THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN HEALTH, THE ARE NOT CENTRES BUT EGOCENTRIC DEADBEATS WHO LIKE JOBSEARCH HAVE GOTTEN OR CAN MAKE A LIVING OUT OF THE CONTROL OF VULNERABLE PEOPLE.

        If a community got together to help people, it would be done by the community, it would be not for profit, it would be our of concern. It may not be good as they might label people or whatever, but THESE ARE NOT COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, These centres get funding from the Government, and by having them there the Government probably even with good intentions thinks they are helping communities. But they are not a part of the community, do not care about communities, are not community minded, do not employ people from the community. What are they then. They are the “health’ verson of Job Search agencies, just loosers of the medical system that would not get employed anywhere but have a mate or contact in the health system or who the health system want to get rid of maybe, whatever they are very very evil people, who may come across as cool or hipster, but they are not they are just the worst of the health department who enjoy the power of not having to do anything but making alot of money, and getting sort of “aren’t I righteous” and “hipster, cool”, down to earth saving the world person, an evil person and looser who the health department probably wanted to get rid of or something or who no decent person would like to be around, who can all of a sudden get a job in a “community health centre” and then claim to be a cool and righteous outsider saving the world. THEY ARE GIVEN POWERS THAT NO ONE SHOULD REALLY HAVE, LIKE JOBSEARCH WANK… CAN AND HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE POWER TO DESTROY PEOPLES LIVES AND TAKE AWAY THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME SO TO SPEAK, THESE EVIL WANK… HAVE THE POWER TO KIDNAP PEOPLE AND LOCK THEM AWAY IN PSYCHITRIC FACILITIES FOR ANYTHING…. AND THEY DO. If they do not like you, they can and will, anything for power, like JobSearch/JobActive it is about power and money. These places are doubly evil though because they actually enjoy having power and money over very vulnerable people or people in need. They get off on that, and they do not care if they make it worse for people who are vulnerable or in need, they seem to enjoy that. THEY JUST DO NOT CARE WHAT THEY DO TO PEOPLE AS LONG AS THEY GET POWER AND MONEY. Other people can do that in various ways, but people who do this to people in need or vulnerable are the lowest of the low.

        SO PLEASE BEWARE OF THESE SO CALLED COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, LIKE JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH CREATE UNEMPLOYMENT AND KEEP PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED, COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES DESTROY COMMUNITY, DESTROY MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, THEY ARE NOT CENTRES FOR HELP BUT EGOCENTRIC PSYCHOPATHS MOSTLY.

        PLEASE BEWARE AND KEEP THEM OUT OF YOUR COMMUNITY AND LET THE GOVERNMENTS KNOW THAT THESE PLACES ARE A DISASTER AND RUIN COMMUNITIES AND MENTAL HEALTH, THEY BASICALLY DESTROY PEOPLE FOR THEIR OWN PLEASURE, POWER AND MONEY…. AND WHERE WE LIVE THE ABOVE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.

    2. MAX employment are about max profits for the company’s owners. The job network industry is a racket. I am a former professional who was required to attend a group session being delivered by someone who was barely literate. They are paid a retainer for no results without real incentive to get people into jobs, which in the real world requires targeted training support among other things. The owners bribe (“donate to campaign funds”) the politicians to keep them in clover. And they call the real unemployed dole bludgers.

      1. THIS IS CORRECT. JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE AS BAD AS THE MAFIA. THEY ARE A CON. IT IS FREUD. THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN CONTROL OVER THE FUNDS, THE MONEY, THE MONEY FROM THE TAX PAYER THAT BELONGS TO THE PERSON IN NEED.

        MAFIA TYPE GROUPS, AND THEY WELL COULD BE THE MAFIA {are RUSSO] NOT JOKING. CON ARTIST HAVE GAINED CONTROL OVER TAX PAYER MONEY. THESE GROUPS HAVE GOT CONTROL OVER PEOPLE BENEFITS, AND USE NOT BENEFIT MONEY BUT THE PEOPLE WHOSE MONEY IT REALLY IS, THE PERSON ON CENTRELINK BENEFITS. THEY USE THE PEOPLE AND THEIR PAYMENTS ONLY, ONLY, ONLY AS A WAY TO MAKE MONEY. SARINA RUSSO WILL ONLY ACCEPT PEOPLE WHO DO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR WHO THEY CAN SOME HOW FORCE INTO OTHER ACTIVITIES, THAT MAKE THEM MONEY, THAT GET THEM A BONUS, THAT THEY GET PAID FOR THAT DESTROY NOT ONLY THE EMPLOYMENT CHANCES OF PEOPLE ON NEWSTART, BUT ALSO DESTROY THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES.

        THEREFORE THESE AGENCIES AND NOT JUST “DOLE BLUDGERS” THEY ARE FRAUDULENT FAKE BUSINESSES NOT ONLY LIVE OFF OTHER PEOPLES “DOLE MONEY”, THE JOB SEARCH SECTOR LIVE OFF OTHER PEOPLE DOLE MONEY, IN ESSENCE, AND THEY USE PEOPLE AND THEIR DOLE MONEY, TO GET MONEY OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT, TO GET MORE TAX PAYERS MONEY FOR DOING NOTHING EXCEPT ABUSING THE PEOPLE ON THE “DOLE” TO BECOME THEIR SLAVES. WE HAVE ESSENTIALLY BECOME THE SLAVES OF CON ARTIST, THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN CON BY THESE SO CALL BUSINESSES, AND WE HAVE BECOME WORKERS OF THE MAFIA OR MAFIA TYPE THING.

        1. THAT SHOULD READ JOBACTIVE/HJOB AGENCIES LIVE [LIVE NOT LIFE} although, BUT JOB AGENCIES LIVE OFF THE SO CALLED “DOLE BLUDGERS” SO WHAT DOES THAT MAKE THEM. THEY HAVE CONNED THE GOVERNMENT THAT THEY ARE BUSINESSES WHILE THEY LIVE OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THE TAX PAYER MONEY THEY GET FROM THE GOVERNMENT, AND THEN OFF THE “DOLE BLUDGER”, BY KEEPING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED, AND PUTTING THEM DOWN, MAKING OUT THEY ARE IN NEED OF CONTROL, DESERVING OF ABUSE, AND COMPLETELY DUMB, AND IDIOTIC, THEY PROFIT.

          JOBACTIVE, JOB AGENCIES HAVE CHANGED THE WAY PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA VIEW PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK. NO ON USE TO CARE MUCH, YES THEIR WAS THE VIEW OF DOLE BLUDGER ABIT, AND MAYBE A FEW THAT COULD IN THOSE DAYS, ONE OR TWO, BUT NOT REALLY. THEY ARE EXPLOITING THE TERM DOLE BLUDGER, AND PROFITEERING NOT ONLY FROM MAKING OUT PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST LOOKING FOR A JOB OR HAVE A PROBLEM ARE BAD, IDIOTS, INCOMPETENT – WHO ELSE DOES THIS OR THINKS LIKE THIS…. THE MAFIA

  6. I am on a disability pension because I have multiple sclerosis and lupus. Centrelink have identified me as being able to work maximum of 8 hours per week. So being a good little worker, I took myself off to a disability employment agency.

    Now I have an honours degree plus a masters in adult education plus 6 years teaching experience. The only thing that stood in my way of a permanent job was a Cert IV from TAFE which I couldn’t afford.

    The disability employment agency refused to assist with the Cert IV. They said no, they could get me a job without it so they weren’t able to fund me.

    They got me a job for 8 hours a week as a receptionist and gardener. Now remember I have MS, which like all people with MS is heat affected. So there I was in the middle of the day gardening. Of course the inevitable happened, numerous exacerbations of the MS and eventually, on my doctors orders, I had to quit.

    The disability employment agency then took me off their books because I wasn’t willing to work.

    What a bloody joke!!!!

    To make things worse I am a qualified adult literacy and numeracy teacher but the disability employment service totally disregarded that.

    Plus my husband has been unemployed for two years, despite a PhD in environmental science.

    When is it time to give up? I get the pension, have a department of housing home, we survive okay on handouts and welfare, the will to work has been beaten out of both of us.

    I know we’re not alone in this which makes everything sort of worse.

    1. i know what you mean Re: the teaching degree – i have spent the last 2 years studying diploma of tech ed, completing all the university modules the only thing holding me up from receiving my diploma is an external OHS course.
      it seems that the job network agencies are only interested in the easy answers.

      1. There are many problems with the increasing number of part-time jobs (and casual jobs). I trainined in aged care and now have a traing debt to pay off. My local member of parliament said not to worry about the debt becasue I don’t earn enough. My employer keepa my hours low so they don’t have to pay me and other staff the superannuation levy. I get one hour per day showering and dressing a 93 year old man at his home. The hour a day pay of $21 doesn’t cover my car expenses and I am not paid any Km allowance. I need more hours work but if I register with another aged care agency my employer will stop the hour each day. When the man gets well , after recovery from the fall he had – then he doesn’t need me to come. I have thought of doing some work in an RSL club at night but the RSL club won’t interview me until I have completed a Responsible Serving of Alcohol Course and a Gaming licence course. I can’t afford to pay for either and then I need $300 to $400 for a Gaming Licence. I have no money.

        The whole darn mess is like having to pay shillings for a Miner’s Right Licence in the days of the Ballarat Eureka Stokade! We have gone backwards, not forwards. How can I go to a bank to ask for a housing loan? Communism in China seems to have created so much wealth that people can come from there and buy houses in Australia – making it harder for normal folk. Perhaps One Nation Party does have an answer? Do we need to revert to firearms and another Eureka Stokade? Hopefully not.

        1. thats why the took the firearms off as many as they could the people in power do not work for the nation thats why we are all being bleed dry

    2. I have a BA of communications, a cert lll in fitness and a diploma of Remedial massage therapy, I was doing a BA in health Sci but was pressured. By atwork, the case worker asking me costantly how much longer to u I have to I have a qualification and that my studying was taking for ever, that she could no longer go out of her way to log my studies as my required activity and Centrelink would no longer accept full-time study as an activity. Did I mention I’m a solo parent with a learning disorder? So as you could her comments shattered me and my dreams of competing a BA I’m H.sci. I’ve been through several case workers since her, the most recent telling me that the full-time study I was doing wasn’t even recorded in the system. I never thought there would come the day I was wishing Centrelink were contact point, but at least they didn’t continually bully and degrade me.

  7. I am Australian who moved back to Australia after being in a series of violent earthquakes in New Zealand. I still have some PTSD from this and cannot live in large cities for fear they will fall down and kill everyone (no joke – was in a skyscraper for the big one that killed people). I was working for a while in Australia on a contract, but that ended and I had to move some rural to save money because I am a single parent with a child. I’m highly qualified in IT and have three tertiary degrees. Used to work for government embassies and the ministry of science so I am definitely not unqualified. However I am an older woman. So no one wants to hire me, and there are no jobs in rural Australia at all for anyone except construction or farm workers. There are two trains to melbourne a day, it is the oldest slowest train in victoria and most of the time it is inoperational and it doesn’t run to school hours. There is no work out here period. I cannot relocate either as I have joint ownership with a relative who refuses to sell. AND because I do self-employed work instead of twiddling my thumbs, centrelink treats me like utter shit. They treated me better when I did not earn money…and in fact it is almost as if they are actually discouraging from earning money? What’s with that? If they want me to work and get off a benefit why the hell don’t the support people trying to generate income instead of attacking them for showing initiative. The piteously incompetent Job Seeker Agency out here does help anyone with employment, it is only concerned with bureaucratic procedure.

      1. In the past they would say, “Your money or your life”. Now they say, ” Your job or you got no life”. We know there is no freedom without economic freedom.

    1. Most J.S.A. do find work for incompetent, inexperienced,or bullying and authoritarian would be and has been bureaucratic workers until they grow a conscience, burn out or find something better with their recent resume experience. They are almost as much a product to be churned out as we are, imagine being able to keep a straight face whilst telling us that this pigs ear of a job market is a silk purse if we only put some effort in to it. And maybe we should upskill with the in house and fully billable course in needlepoint on offer to be marketed as fully job ready.

  8. work in mental health and am becoming alarmed at the amount of m/h patients who are being removed from DSS benefits either coming into hospital destatute or calling the ward a week or two after D/C to say the support put in place has fallen through ?is the system taking advantage of there cognitive disability.

    1. Yes no doubt it is….and look what it’s doing.
      Unnecessarily clogging up/putting strain on the mental health services.
      Truth of the matter is….if these people had proper support instead of these fat assed bone idle stone faced unempathic bitches at these Job services providers….then they would instead have jobs,work…and $.

      I told this asshole provisional psychologist who works with @work australia that it’s Christmas and all they have done is sit on their bone idle fat ignorant asses now for 5 months and have done nothing and how I feel inside how I am deserving of so much better from them and told this bitch I have had it with hers and rest of em there’s BS I told her I didn’t feel like living anymore….and this fucking bitch calls the nuthouse/police…..police were actually very very nice and compassionate and understanding.Next thing this bitch calls me from @work Wanneroo and talks to me like I’m a peice of shit threatening me with…”just to let you know there will be consequences in future” regarding any more email from me venting my frustrations at there appalling services.

      Who the fuck does this thing think she is?
      She is not even a psychologists asshole and I have already seen another person on here venting their exact same frustrations with the same provider @work Wanneroo and the disability case worker there.
      I have fucken had it with this lot!!

    2. I am DES,have ADHD and generalised depression only worsened last year because of my 2 dogs dying within 2 months of each other…and losing my mature aged fitter/machinist Apprenticeship and job via lack of support and inadequate on the job training.
      There is nothing wrong with my medication and I do not belong in any fucking nuthouse it’s an insult!
      This provisional psychologist….well I hope she stays at that level and does not progress further like others have because she doesn’t give a shit and its her fault she chose the wrong pathway and decided to work for an appalling JSA @ work Australia.

      There are so many better psychologists out there way ahead of where she is…where she is going.
      I can’t stand her….I can’t stand any of those freaks from @work Australia.
      Bunch of freaks.

      1. Hi Jon
        I understand how it feels to have your 2 dogs dying within a close time frame. The same happened for me – not even my partner (wife) or family understood how I felt. Unfortunately some people believe human beings should just “toughen up”. These people are wrong so don’t give them the benefit of being able to judge you – keep some of your feelings to yourself, and close friends. Focus on the job issues – then make a written complaint about the psychologist and her lack of help with the apprenticeship to both the Psychologists Registration Board in your State, to your local federal MP and also to the Minister Department of Employment.

  9. I have a major depressive disorder. and have had since young. When able to work, I did… but then went on the DSP after a long stretch in and out of hospitals. Then when I felt able to work again, I did. Getting a job took less than 24 hours (previous employer liked me), but getting CLink to *stop* paying me took weeks.

    Then I was diagnosed with MS after I started falling and injuring myself. Kept working as long as I could, slowly changed hours to help beat my public transport injuries (society collapses on peak public transport), then reduced hours, then tried to get a part-pension. CLink refused. I kept on trying. But depression and MS and no hope led to a suicide attempt.

    So now I am on the DSP again. I hate it, I hate being ill, and if I could work I would. I do a couple of 3 hour sets a week volunteering, and I struggle to feed myself afterward. Physically – can’t hold cutlery and struggle to cook without cuts / scalds / minor fires / dropping stuff everywhere. After a stressful stint I struggle to swallow without choking or dribbling. But volunteering helps my mental health, I think.

    And I now live in fear that I’m not disabled enough. Losing the DSP now would push me over the edge again.

  10. Recent conversation with my JSA consultant. “You have a history of being unemployed”.
    Excuse me! , since being made redundant from a job I did for more than 21 years, yes I have had trouble finding work, only casual or fixed term jobs. I have also done four certificate courses on top of all this, but still it’s hard. But I have not sat back and did nothing, but I am made to feel useless by these JSA idiots, they are totally out of touch with the tough realities of looking for work, especially if you are mature aged.
    Stuff them all! They are no help and are the real rorters and bludgers in all this situation.

    1. Don’t give up Glen because of their incompetence, be above that you know your worth and thats all that matters, the employment service system is an appauling punishable system for the skilled and the most vulnerable, it is the most deceiving, misleading, under resourced, under funded, inexperienced job system ever setup by government who listen to no-one and who is unaccountable to no-one, it borders well below unsatisfactory in service delivery, experience and professionalism. Try and take time out for yourself and enjoy your time.

      1. How come at the start of your “journey” with your appointed JSA do they hand to you a “service guarantee” that lists all these nicely worded,sounding helpful things to which you will only ever get them lying to you through there skin of there teeth about.
        As far as I’m concerned this “guarantee of service” fancy sounding document should be considered a legal document too.
        There the fucken idiots that generate this document and put it out there for those at first sign up so they should not be able to sleaze their way out of legal binding documents.

        1. You must research Don Watsons ‘Weasel Words” dictionary to be able to translate the “mission statement” and suchlike that you will have thrust on you in lieu of any meaningful assistance. Once these documents are translated and revealed for a puff of hot air they will have lost much of their capacity to wound you with their duplicity and false hopes. To be treated like a mug annoys me too but you must keep the high moral ground and not be drawn into a “breach” cos that’s the name of their game.

  11. Can someone explain to me how is is that a Case Manager can sit in a session an unemployed person has with a psychologist. My understanding is that treatment by medical people is protected by the medical privilege which can only be broken by a court order or legal summons. Can someone explain why Max Employment staff are allowed to sit in when they are not medically trained and for what purpose ?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Anne,
      that is really bad. I can hardly believe these guys are getting away with this stuff. As you can tell, this is the first time I have been on this site and I am, quite honestly, blown away. These guys are getting away with murder because people just do not know their rights or are so tired and exhausted from looking for work that we don´t have the time to take them on.
      But…that time has come, methinks.

    2. I realise this was some time ago now, but under no circumstances are you under any obligation to allow them to sit in on a psychologist session. A psychologist session is confidential and very personal. I would be very angry if they even suggested sitting in on my sessions. At one point it was mentioned to me that the provider had a psychologist/counsellor who visited, and I could make use of. As I am very suspicious of the provider I knew I would never see that psychologist because I couldn’t feel comfortable speaking to them as I would not trust them to keep my session confidential. Trust is a major part of developing a patient-therapist relationship, and I would actually expect that the psyhcologist themself would tell the case manager they were not welcome!

    3. Anne – if any Employment Service Provider tried to get a staff member to sit in on any doctor/psychologist/psychiatrist appointment, that is utterly absurd. What you need to understand is that a lot of departments and businesses try to do things that are completely unethical and often illegal. The problem is, the vast majority of the population do not know what the rules and regulations are, relating to their circumstances, and what is being asked and expected of them. Here’s a few things for ALL readers to consider:
      – Be polite and respectful. If people are forever slamming their fist down on the table (literally, or otherwise), saying: “I know my rights!” This is not going to help. Always try to be open and impartial when dealing with people. As the old saying goes – you can attract a lot more flies with honey than with vinegar.
      – Arm yourself with a pen and notepad in any meeting or interview. And if need be, jot down names and times. If someone ever tells you that you don’t need a pen and paper….that’s a major red flag. And in big, bold, neon lights.
      – If you do run into problems, do not use the phone – put things in writing. I’d start by looking here:
      https://www.employment.gov.au/complaints-compliments-and-suggestions
      – Above all else, get some legal advice. There are services out there that should be able to offer some advice.

      If there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the years, and that’s the importance of documenting things and the use of email. This is something businesses and departments despise. Why? Because they can then be held accountable. The problem is, most people are irritable and impatient, and immediately pick up the phone; there’s the first mistake. When dealing with important issues, avoid using the phone as much as possible – use email/letters/fax. And make it clear that you want all correspondence in writing….not verbally. If you have no other choice than using the phone, always get a reference number for the call. Something to etch in stone, and never forget it:
      “If it’s not written down….it didn’t happen. Again, if it’s not written down….it didn’t happen.”
      Learn this, and learn this well.

      1. Fantastic advice. I’m always surprised that most people don’t realise the ‘if it’s not written down, it didn’t happen’. It’s a basic.

  12. Just wondering if its me, or are other jobseekers finding the new Jobactive system as bad or worse than Job Services Australia? The mob I am with are aggressive bullies “we know better than you” types and no help whatsoever, they also seem to lack the skill of actually communicating the right info to jobseekers and then go on the attack when you try to defend yourself. I am very interested to hear what others think of Jobactive?

    1. The Jobactive system is worse than the JSA system. They will be all out of employment one day and then they will be walking in every unemployed person’s shoes themselves. There only above themselves because they actually get paid to standover and dictate to unexpecting jobseekers. Ensure you read your job plan and that your happy with it before you sign it. Ensure that there is a two-way-street and discuss any concerns you have with your site manager. Don’t always agree if you are not comfortable with anything they do or say, this will not help you. You can also dictate to them the service you want out of them.

  13. Jobseekers beware of companies that use long term unemployed like products off the supermarket shelf. Recent experience with a horrible company called Flo Level Technologies in Melbourne. (I don’t mind naming and shaming them). I applied for and accepted a job at this company, trying to do the right thing . ie. Get a job, any job.
    I was made to do incredibly difficult work on microscopically small PCB boards, electronics, soldering etc. Only problem, very hard to see the actual work, with a magnifier and glasses combined. Boss abused staff on a daily basis, swearing and making constant threats, also no understanding of difficulties with the work. After 6 weeks I was told to leave, as the boss was now sending the job I was doing to another company, to do the actual work. Absolutely pathetic, wondering if others have experienced this type of abuse? I feel as if I was just used, simply because of my age (49) and because of recent unemployment. I am really interested to know about the experiences of others with “crap jobs and crap companies such as this.”

    1. that’s one of the oldest scams in the book, company gets cheap labour hire for 6 months – agency gets gov’t funding , great arrangement for these 2 but the jobseeker gets thrown on the scrap heap until elligible for the next round ,,,,

  14. To all Jobseekers:- I am a skilled Voluntary Australian jobseeker with 25 years of skills and experience in my profession, deemed unsuitable for every role within my profession both at senior and junior levels by the private recruiting sector and now have been registered in the Australian government’s Employment Services since 2006, yes 2006, nearly 11 years provided with bare minimal employment assistance, left on a permanent scrapheap and ‘denied’ all access to traineeships/apprenticeships leading into new career pathways, denied access to Restart as a mature age jobseeker, DENIED THE RIGHT TO WORK by employers, hell I am not even eligible for work for the dole or newstart. In a family of 5 with 3 children to support receiving continual rejection every week of every month of every year. DO NOT BOTHER with the National Customer Service Line they will only send you on a merry go round of transferring you from one provider to the next with the same service delivery. **Be also aware that employment provider performance star ratings are not what they appear to be** Complaints should be made to the Department of Employment, Department of Social Services for those with Disabilities, Minister for Employment Senator Cash and the federal government. Expect a cold and uncaring reception! You are not alone!

  15. Bennett you are well organized , I am on DSP at 60 I like to distribute your information at centerlink , what do you want me to do , please regester me . as a contact . thank you Oswald Bruggemans 04 58549137

  16. I need some advice about job service provider, I have tried ringing centrelink but they are constantly engaged. I work 15 hours a fortnight and study 20 hours a week, job service provider rang me and demanded my payslips and I have been told I dont have to give them to them, when I asked why they wanted them she said so they can claim for me, for getting me my job, I told them I got the job myself and now they are threatening to cancel my newstart if I dont comply with what they want, I need help on this one please and thank you

    1. That’s terrible Wendy! No they don’t need your payslips! I got a job myself while with job service providers, and that was all ok. This person was fine with it because you do your reporting your hours to centrelink anyway but I’m suspecting that person wants to be paid a BONUS for “getting you that job” sounds like bullying to me too.. but its all hooey! It depends on the person you get they actually can be super flexible apart from seeing them once a fortnight and meeting your hour requirements. the rest is on that individual person. I’ve learnt this the hard way. I had a provider who bullied me about not working enough hours this was when i was doing shift work and thats out of my control but better than no job right? WRONG she hassled me about my hours constantly and made me email her every week with every hour i worked and my breaks totally unnessasary! It was a power trip. For you I hope its ok now i just saw you commented last year! but dob them in! Theres also an organisation that the job service providers are scared of called DEEWA or something like that sorry I don’t know the exact name but they can get them into trouble for treating us this way!

  17. I am 58 years old now and I lost my full time job on the first of June, 2011. I was working for Borders when they went under. I ran the music and movie department and I was very happy there. I went to Centrelink and registered as unemployed. I was case managed by Mission Australia, who never referred me to a single job and only seemed to be there to torment me into a job. I did the TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) at the Adelaide College of TAFE. Mission Australia initially told me that they’d help pay the $3,500 for the course, then two weeks later, after I’d paid for the course with my own money, they told me that they would not help me pay for the course. While I was doing my TESOL course I was notified by Mission Australia that I would have to attend a three week course on the subject of preparing for and going to job interviews, this was when I was halfway through my TAFE course. I politely but firmly told them that I would be unable to attend their course because I was already studying four days per week for the next few months. They rescheduled the course until after I’d finished with TAFE. I subsequently did the three week course and was no wiser at the end of it. I have been both an employee and a business own in my life and I could have run through the course offered to me in a single day, if I was asked to do so. The course interfered with my life, was time consuming and offered nothing of value. Eventually, I asked to be moved to a different job agency. I found Mission Australia made no effort to help me at all and only existed to make money from the government for bothering and threatening the unemployed.

    In 2014 I was moved to PVS Jobfind in Kilkenny, Adelaide. It was right next door to Mission Australia. The place was a little different. For starters everyone who worked at Mission Australia seemed to be a woman under the age of 25. I was seen by a man at PVS, admittedly a rather young man who seemed reasonably sympathetic. I went to PVS once per month and let them know about my physical and mental declines (I have chronic cellulitis in my right leg, clinical depression, I am subject to panic and anxiety attacks and I have a host of other symptoms).

    Then on the 23rd of February, 2015, a bomb went off. A very big bomb indeed. The ABC television program, 4 Corners, did an exposé on job agency industry entitled “The Jobs Game”. I invite you to watch it here, if you haven’t already seen it: http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/2015/02/23/4183437.htm

    Shortly after this program aired, both Mission Australia and PVS as well as another job agency vanished from their offices at Kilkenny in Adelaide and presumably from elsewhere as well.

    So, for six months I was in limbo, which didn’t bother me in the slightest. I was very ill and getting worse and I have many things that were concerning me and looking for jobs was a low priority. Then, out of the blue, I found myself referred to a place with the grand name of Jobs Statewide. This place seemed a little more gung-ho than the two previous places I had been to, but it still seemed to be staffed by ex-checkout chicks and night-fill lads from a suburban supermarket. I was told that I would have to come in twice each month, and even though this is 2.1 kilometres from my home, there are no convenient bus or train routes and to get their I either had to shell out for a taxi or catch a train into the city and then walk some distance for a bus to the Arndale shopping centre, where Jobs Statewide is located. I implored them to do my interviews by phone, because of my declining health and there answer was a firm “no can do.” My doctor gave me an three month exemption from looking for work, which helped me get my life in order a little.

    By mid 2016 my health, both mental and physical was in sharp decline. Over the last four years I have attempted suicide five times. My ex-wife left me for another man in 2010 and this was just the beginning of my decline. I had a series of medical tests performed on me and it was discovered that in addition of depression and cellulitis, I have diverticulitis, very low testosterone levels, I am losing red blood cells at a prodigious rate, I have severe anemia and will require regular infusions of blood, I have a thyroid condition, fatty liver, an inflamed oesophagus, my blood sugar levels are out of whack and, to top it all off, I have glaucoma and I have already lost 30% of my vision in my left eye. My GP, who is a very kind and understanding man, has suggested to me that I go on disability until my health improves or if it improves, which is doubtful.

    So, in October of this year (2016), after a lot of blood, sweat and tears, the head office of Jobs Statewide admitted that I would probably be better served to a job agency that catered for my needs and Status Employment was offered to me. It is located in Dale Street of Port Adelaide and I can get there by train. I live directly across from the West Croydon railway station. However, the offices of Status Employment are, for me, a considerable walk and getting there from the railway station is very painful for me.

    So, two Fridays ago, I set off for my 13:30 appointment with Status Employment. I got there fifteen minutes early, hoping to get the interview over and done with as quickly as possible. However, I was informed that the person who was to interview me was at lunch. She finally saw me forty minutes later. I was again confronted by a girl who I estimate wasn’t even as old as my oldest son, Chris, who recently turned twenty four. I was proudly told that Status doesn’t have a “get ’em in, get ’em out” attitude and they prefer to spend time with their victims…… ahem! … I mean “clients”! I was duly told what are my obligations and what I must do (I was alarmed at how often the word “must” came up in the conversation vis-à-vis my side of the deal with this organisation).
    About twenty minutes into the conversation I asked this: “I am an honest Australian citizen in my late fifties. I have paid my taxes all my life and I been both an employer and employee. So what exactly are my human rights here, as an Australian citizen?”
    She seemed confused and I repeated my question, “What are my rights here?”
    She answered that we will get to those towards the end of the interview.
    We got toward the end of the interview and I was told a number of things, including:

    1. I must attend an interview with Status Employment every two weeks.
    2. I must choose an activity which including weekly attendance at a “job club” or a “work for the dole scheme” or do “fifteen hours of volunteer work per week” or do a Centrelink approved further education course.
    3. I must sign a job plan then and there on the spot.

    After two unproductive hours (in my humble opinion) I was ready to sign this accursed “job plan” just so that I could get home and rest. I again asked about my human rights and this made the young lady fidget with her pen even more. However, she could not answer my question. Or maybe she would not? Who knows!?
    I apologised to the young woman who interviewed me and said that it must be very tiresome to have to interview a cranky old so-and-so like me on a Friday afternoon when she is probably thinking about what she’s going to be doing on the weekend. She told me that I was actually unusually polite and that I wasn’t a problem at all. She also told me that there are jobs out there for anyone who wants them. I had to suppress a snigger at that.
    However, I did tell her that I felt like a newly released convict who was being interviewed by a probation officer to make sure I hadn’t been naughty in the past week instead of a dignified late middle aged Australian citizen who has lead a productive and law abiding life.

    So, it has come to this. Poor and unemployed Australians are to be “motivated” by threatening to take money away from us and wealthy Australians are to be motivated by giving them more money?

    Yesterday, the 17th of November, I was required to see the same woman I saw a fortnight ago at Status Employment. In the interim I had posted on Status Employment’s Facebook page that they should make it clear to their clients precisely what their rights are because I wasn’t told when I saw them. Strangely, they approved the post and when I last checked, it was still there.

    So yesterday I was told that I must choose an activity and that it is binding upon me to undertake an activity in order to receive my unemployment benefits, which were hard won by the Australian union movement in the 1940s.
    Sir Robert Menzies in 1944: “People should be able to obtain these benefits as a matter of right, with no more loss of their own standards of self-respect than would be involved in collecting from an insurance company the proceeds of an endowment policy on which they have been paying premiums for years.”

    Unemployment benefits are not a privilege or a luxury, they are a basic human right in Australia. Never let anyone convince you otherwise.

    Back to Status Employment. Because I can’t do much and I am waiting for further medical tests, I chose to do a “Job club” once each week. These things are essentially pointless and a waste of time, especially for someone like me who is not really able to work.

    I told the woman who interviewed me again that I am not at all happy about the way I am being treated and she just said that she doesn’t make the rules, she only follows them (and enforces them, which she didn’t say)
    “Ah!”, I said, “The Nuremberg Defence! – we were just following orders!”
    Needless to say, this remark was lost on her.

    I left Status Employment wondering what sort of country I had woken up in and why the poor and unemployed are being treated like this? People are rightfully indignant about the way Australia shoves refugees onto islands in the Pacific, but what of the many thousands of Australian citizens who are being punished, threatened, inconvenienced, humiliated and simply having their lives ruined by harsh government policies?
    I have contacted Mr. Mark Butler and had a very good conversation with his staff about these issues. I also contacted the office of Mr. Bill Shorten, the leader of the federal opposition and had a very productive conversation about my situation and the situation of thousands of my compatriots. And finally I had two very productive conversations with the good folks at the Australian Unemployed Workers Union, who actually took the time to inform me of what my rights actually are, as opposed to the woman who interviewed me at Status Employment, Port Adelaide, where she either didn’t know what are my rights or deliberately concealed them or simply tried to bamboozle me with paperwork and threats.

    On the sound advice of the Australian Unemployed Workers Union, I have emailed Status Employment to get my Job Plan renegotiated in the light of my new knowledge of my rights. So far, I haven’t heard from them.

    If any of you wish to contact me, my email address is smguy@optusnet.com.au and my mobile number is 0413354470. I am available around the clock.

    Goodbye and good luck.

    1. Hope you are OK Steven. I read your story and are appalled at what you have gone through, my story is similar and the mindless Jobactive idiots don’t make things any easier.

      Glen Wilkinson

    2. I completely empathise with you. My life has been destroyed after workplace bullying in 2012, it was extensive. Before that, I had worked full-time since 1993, sometimes two jobs, bought, renoviated and sold properties three times, living in my fourth since 2004. I suffered severe depression after the workplace bullying. Because my former employer has contacts in government, I have been made out to be a perpetrator, a person who has difficulties with authority, and attempts to declare me severely mentally disturbed. It should never has come to what it is now. I have not done anything wrong. I have reported on extensive wrongdoing and misconduct, backed up with solid evidence. Instead of writing outcome reports based on the information I have provided, there have been extensive lies made up about me. I am now completely unemployable. I am 50 years old, have not had a permanent job since 2012. I have done my very best to go forward. I have information on how every workplace I had since 2014, have intentionally (no it is not imagination) done things to make it look like I have acted with misconduct. There is something called gangstalking. This is people who are paid to destroy an unknown person’s life. This is the truth and reality. Our world is going downhill quickly.

  18. Well, I have a Personality disorder, Type B, multiple traits. Today I took a Med cert to Centrelink as twice they have rejected me for the DSP because I don’t meet the 20 points. Well, today at Victoria Park Centrelink WA, I was told by the staff member, that under Social Security Law, all medical reports are dismissed as false, and the Public Servant makes the decision based on what THEY see, not the medical professionals. He stated that no one gets DSP, even people with Downs Syndrome, or Intellectually Handicapped. No disable person is to be on DSP, all must be on Newstart so they can save $300PF per person. Money above People, arsehole Liberals. On Friday I am going to see Ken Wyatt and I am going him for being a token black. I am aboriginal and he has failed miserably. Bet he’s only there to build his bank account at out expense. He is a waste of time, like all Liberal politicians. Bishop is a liar and claims credit when someone else has actually done the job. They all lie, Bernardi, hates Immigrants but is one himself, Abetz wants to water down 18C and he is German with an uncle in the SS in WW2. Christensen a born again Christian Hypocrite and attacks Aboriginals and anyway not white. The Liberal Party is the most racist and discriminating people I have come across. You cant even speak to them without them telling you to go away and stop annoying them. Arrogant, rude, homophobic, racists, xenophobic, and if you are not rich, well that’s your fault. I hate Liberals and their stupid dumb supporters. And now, A Liberal State pollie trying to get elected, Jim Seth, a black man from another country. No aussies in the Liberals all born overseas or immigrants. We should have in our constitution, you must be a minimum of 3rd Generation Aussie and BORN here. Same as the USA.

    1. Hi Shane
      I have just listened to the new Federal Minister for health, Mr Hunt. He says there will be more money for Mental Health. Especially to reduce the suicide rate of the 15 to 44 year old group. It seems the process is knock the shit out of unemployed, brutally send them into low funded programs to help unemployed. It takes me 3 to 4 hours to write a job application addressing professional key selection criteria (KSCs) and they want me to write 40 applications per month. Chritians say the Lord will not test you beyond your means and abilitiies (well if it is not God then who is breaking us into little pieces so that structural unemployment becomes medicalised and therefore we suffer with the mental health problem, Perhaps a Royal Comission is the right answer.

  19. I forgot, My first JSP was Communicare, did nothing, transferred to another in Maddington, forgot who as they were useless, and now Salvation Army. 2.5 years and been sent to 2 jobs. And both jobs knocked me back as I am on medication for my mental problems. But even Salvation Army take no notice of my illness. As said, Centrelink has been instructed by the Liberal Party to remove everybody of DSP. And to reject all claims and reject all medical reports. The Public Servant makes the decision based on what THEY see, not what the doctors tell them. So unless you have 2 heads and 5 arms, you will not get it. I would have thought that this is discrimination by the Liberal party. They are discriminating against people who can not defend themselves. the Liberals always attack the poor, infirm, disabled, pensioners, any one not rich like them. Should this not be illegal? They are rejecting Medical Professionals advice over a Public Servant who has no training. And the Public Servant has been instructed to reject all claims. So, I would have thought that this is discrimination and should not be allowed. How come the Government is allowed to Discriminate against people? This is wrong and shows how horrible and nasty the Liberals really are.

    1. Employers discriminate applicants that need to take regular medication….I know it’s happened to me.
      Another thing I know is that JSA providers are all cunts too that discriminate against people with ADHD and depression!

      1. Sorry to hear of your suffering Jon. Job Network Members and Centrelink are not worth your worries. A friend of mine said she would “not cast hear pearls amongst swine”. And she is right. Commonwealth Law is above State Law. This gives Dept of Employment staff and Centrelink staff protection from being called to give evidence or have rulings made against them if their is a coronial hearing due to the death of a member of the public via suicide or any other means. They are safe from scrutiny.

  20. I now don’t feel so alone in my dealings and feelings toward so-called Jobseeker providers.
    I have been ordered to see Nortec for the past 15 months and I have not had one interview organised through them.
    I am a mature aged person and the only interview I have obtained during this time are the ones I have applied for online.
    Every 3 weeks I attend their office to hand in my Jobsearches (now I do them online thankfully) and then told to sit and wait. Usually this is for 30 – 45 minutes (even when I was working casually and taking time off work to do so with no pay). Never have they apologised for keeping me waiting.
    For me, this is a waste of my time and could be done over the telephone.
    I am not really sure what I need to go there for but I do it to get the pittance that Centrelink give me.

  21. I have recently had a relationship break up and have 50 50 care of our 23 month old. I am on newstart and have been told that because there can be only 1 principal carer. Apart from part ftb, I have no changes in my requirements and am expected to work my couple of pt days a fnight, have my son 7 days pw, look for full time work and now have upcoming work for the dole requirements, while the other parent has equal care, a pile of money pf and no obligations. I have no problem with getting enough work to get us thru week 2 week and saying bye to centerlink but think this is a bit lopsided. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar case?

    1. Hi David,
      the caring of children and implications for Centrelink payment is fraught with problems.

      The best choice I can think of is if your former partner agrees on paper for you to be the sole carer and then you apply for parenting payment. Child Support could be made a private arrangement so that your former partner was not disadvantaged. That way one of you would receive full Centrelink Parenting Payment and Health Care Card until the child was six years old.

      The former Human Rights Commissioner Tim Wilson is now in government. Hopefully he would understand your situation. Perhaps you could write to him via House of Representatives, Parliament House Canberra.

      If you are feeling very upset you could contact Dads in Distress, they have a phone line and some support groups. (google for info.)

  22. I have a mental illness but have worked all my adult life. I have worked in full-time government administration jobs until I had my second child. After I had him I developed post-natal depression, but still wanted to work so I found supported employment through a disability employment agency working as a cook. Funding for disability employment was cut in the Abbott government’s first budget and I have been out of work since. I have looked for work but being 42 with a mental illness and two small children at home makes me not very competitive when it comes to getting hired. The longer I’m out of work and the older I get the more I wonder if I will ever find employment again, and quite frankly, that makes me want to cry.

    1. I understand you are saying supported disability employment was cut under the Abbott government – but I think it is time to try again.
      Especially with people like former Human Rights Commissioner Tim Wilson in government. Hopefully he would understand your situation. Perhaps you could write to him via House of Representatives, Parliament House Canberra. I remember some disability agencies running cafes in Bayswater (Vic) and Dandenong (was the Dandenong one called Madcap?) Another possibility would be to get a group together and buy a food van -perhaps getting sponsorship.

  23. Hi everyone
    I have just read through the 2 years of horror stories above – I am very empathetic with everyone of them.

    Please go to the AUWU home page and scroll down to the comments made by Lou, Eva and Maeve.

    Unfortunately – but not wishing to be political- there is a fact which mostly overlooked. The Greens voted for a $30 per week increase in Newstart in 2015 in the final days of the Rudd Government. 59 Senators, led by House Leader Penny Wong, refused to pass the increase. Then Mr Abbott came in.

    Under Julia Gillard AO – her Centrelink determined to reduce the number of DSPs, made it mandatory for disabled and sick people to undergo a “Program of Support” (POS) before the could apply for DSP. This wasn’t advertised of communicated. As a result it saved ALP treasuers heaps and meant people stave below the poverty line.

    Please read the home page. Please write to every politician you can and keep copies of you letters.

    If you are over 50 write to Michael O’Neill who is CEO of Seniors Australia. Keep this website posted re your efforts.

    Unfortunately it will take some mass action to put the wind up the skirts of the bureaucrats who keep their jobs whatever political party is in office.

    Sorry to be political – but try and think like this…..look at your electorate and vote to keep the margins small. Sometimes by voting against a sitting member the seat becomes a marginal one. And we know that is when your vote counts most.

  24. I have been on newstart since september & have had a medical certificate from the start due to mental health issues.I have an application in for dsp.the 3rd certificate which i uploaded on 12-jan i have not had an answer back.i am mentaly in a complete mess yet they are sending me to a job agency on thursday.On the dsp forms & information it states i do not have any mutual obligations while being assesed i sent my dsp application in 6-12-16 & the same day they informed me they have my claim.should i ring my job agency & tell them i am not attending or should i go to centrelink .first time on benefits so i dont fully understand my rights any help or advice appreciated greatly.from anonymous

    1. Hi Barry
      the whole system is excruiatingly complex.
      1. you need to keep friends with your job agency and centrelink
      2. you need to keep copies of everything you write – give no phone calls, no phone messages and no verbal conversations
      3. people who are sick shouldn’t have to do computer uploads -post everything to Centrelink, reply paid 7800, Canberra ACT 2610
      4. write to your local MP: thank them for what Centrelink does for people and let them know your situation and that you applied for DSP and the date – (you create a paper trail this way).
      BECAUSE THE COMMONWEALTH DEPT. OF EMPLOYMENT MAKES THE RULES IT IS THEM WHO THE ARGUMENT SHOULD BE WITH, THEY SHOULD PROVIDE MORE FUNDING
      5. You MUST complete a PROGRAM OF SUPPORT – write to Centrelink saying you want to be put on a PROGRAM OF SUPPORT
      6. Every appointment you go to:job agency, centrelink, local MP. , doctors please take a friend or relative with you as a witness and support person
      7. When you get your first rejection letter – immediately fill out a NEW APPLICATION for DSP – I really mean it!!! And go through the whole gut renching process again. A new GP or medical form is required as well. List all you medical conditions as long as they are listed as treated and stable (even one untreated or unstable condition will keep you off DSP)
      8. Also when you get the first rejection letter you need to appeal for a review and go up each of the appeal steps. Gut renching though they may be.
      9. EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU ARE REJECTED REPEAT STEPS 7. & 8. I am serious, even if you send photocopies with new dates on them!
      10. you need to take all appeals as high as the Social Security Appeals Tribunal (see SSAT website) and then to the next appeal level above that) Administrative Appeals.
      11. A doctor told me even people in wheel chairs weren’t getting DSP.
      12. Read the comments made on the FAQ page on this website – the comments from Lou, Maeve etc are very relevant
      13. Read John Grisham’s book – not sure of the title but it it about an insurance company called “The Great Benefit Society” this company is what Centrelink has become.
      14. Keep going through this list again and again, talk to friends, go to charities for help. Send your case details to Cassandra, CEO, ACOSS (google the address) and get help from the Social Security Rights or Welfare Rights service.
      15. Sorry this list is so long but I want to be thorough to assist you and anyone else who needs DSP. Also read Amy’s comment’s on this page.

      1. Patricia i thank you very much for taking the time to give me so much in depth advice it is very much appreciated. i will see how i feel over the coming days /weeks your letter has made me feel i am not alone & that i have support from others in similar situations,however all this is making my condition worse how they can drag a person into centrelink who is not well is beyond me.I may just tell them to cancel my payments & tell them to shove their dsp application.I know that would be giving up but i suspect i have no chance at all of getting dsp but i won’t know until i try. regards Barry.

        1. Barry….please don’t give up. Unfortunately there are lot’s and lot’s of people in the same situation as you. All the points Patricia made are very relevant.
          If you are not already with a Disability Job Agency (DES) and your claim for DSP isn’t accepted ask for an Employment Services Assessment. This is your right, so don’t be fobbed off if they say they have no appointments. An ESA should refer you to a DES provider. At least you would still be getting Newstart. Keep us posted on how you go. Good luck.

          PS As Patricia said….keep copies of everything, always take someone with you as a witness/support.

      2. The GREAT BENEFIT medical insurance company is in John Grisham’s nook and film “THE RAINMAKER”. It is a fantastic story portraying what Centrelink has become.

  25. My “case manager” got mad at me and marked me down as not attending the interview . Now i can’t report , So i went into my local center-link office to get this mess sorted out and they told me there is nothing they can do until i speak with the Center-link Participation Team 1300 306 325 i have been on hold twice now for hours at a time and no dice . Can’t even get through . So both my wife and i are unable to report our earnings for this period .

    Is there another way to reach these clowns ?

    1. Yes, report by post or fax.
      Centrelink Particpation Team
      Centrelink, reply paid 7800, Canberra ACT 2610

      It sounds as though you may be being “breached” by the case manager. So it is import to act quickly and by as many ways as possible.

      Keep a copy, preferably with a post office date stamp. It won’t be a quick process by post. The fax number is probably hidden in the website – so at least start by post (no cost) and follow-up by fax.

      You could put a request in writing to your local politician asking them to phone the participation team on your behalf and leave a message for a call back to you – spell out clearly what went on with the casemanager. This creates a paper trail, it lets the pollie know how stretched the system is. The Department of Employment just dictates to other departments without providing funding. Little scientific evaluation is done.

      Then the next day take or send your income report to the pollies office and ask them to send it on to the Parliamentary Liaison Officer for Centrelink (this is the top of the pyramid).

      Centrelink Participation Team is one of the most stressful and worst jobs going. A lot of Centrelink staff seriously think of committing suicide because the mangers bully them so much – staff get sacked for menial things so Centrelink can keep its Comcare (workcover) costs as low as possible. Try and be nice and calm with them if you do get through on the phone.

      When you are back on payments again: a] change your job network agency, and after that b] write to your local member asking they follow -up your complaint with the Minister of Employment.

      1. One thing I have found effective with emails to these clowns is an effective cc list, eg politicians who like to embarass the government. It has worked for me on a couple of occassions.

    2. After 3 Hours on the phone i finally got through and they unlocked my accounts and processed my reporting over the phone . For all my trouble i was awarded the sum of around $16 . And now my job-active provider wants me to double handle all the paperwork and provide them as well as center-link with pay slips and complete a ” Participants time sheet ” .

      1. talk to auwu about this cos jsa use this sort of data to claim that they got you work and justify their claims on the government for funding which comes out of the welfare budget and could be used usefully instead of lining their pockets and inflating the welfare spend. The legality or otherwise of this request is covered in the auwu brief of your rights.

  26. jpTime of the month hassles –
    my job network provider seems to have PMT.
    Although my employer can’t give me time away today as work is full on the JNP wants me to go in to sign some form. If I take time off the boss sacks me – if I don’r sign the form the JNP is angry.

    Solution – email the form or fax it to me at work and I fax it back signed – no stress

    tick the box
    I can confirm that my employer did not require or request of me to supply a medical certificate (or similar) for the period I was unable to work, as stated above.

    All done – It is called a PERMIISSABLE BREAK

    THE GESTAPO ARE HAPPY!

    1. We need to be very careful there is a psychiatrist who has written a book called “Fragile Nation” he thinks that some people use mental illness to get a easy ride. This is similar thinking to the “Fountainhead Program” in Queensland which was discredited by Four Corners for charging $30,000 for a 28 day course which believes mental illness is just a bad attitude and that people “do depression” in the same way they “do drugs”. The bio-psycho-social model of mental illness is well tested and well supported. People need clean affordable accommodation, low priced fruit and vegetables, community support programs and medication where appropriate. Certainly they do not need the complicated stressful rules of the Department of Employment and the barriers that Centrelink puts up because some nuthead can’t work out what is needed to keep people above the poverty line while sales for Audis, Mercedes, Volvos, Jeeps and Porches all soar to record levels.

      1. Beware of the Community Health Centres that have silently invaded everywhere, in at last Regional NSW and possibly the Cities and other States in Australia.

        These so called Community Health Cr are influenced by psychopathic doctors, who despise people with problems. They are the Job Active Job Search of the Health Sector, exploiting and torturing people with mental health and other so called welfare problems. Putting labels on people and fitting them forceably into boxes to tick a box and make money and give themselves power. Life problems are normal, it is people like these that always claim to be free of any errors and problems that are the terrifying, and the also like to pray on peoples vulnerabilities. Community Health Centres are the Department of Jobs and Small business of {Job Active/Job Search etc| of the Health Sector. Live this Department that are slowly disempowering Centrelink, corrupting Centrelink and will eventually get rid of good Departments if not stop soon, the Community Health Centres are influencing Hospitals and other private doctors, medical centres, that act as if they are taking a load of the system and private sector, as the are sort of inbetween, like the Department of small business and jobs, but in essence they are just nothing, nothing but after money and power, the jobs of good enough departments or Government organisations, but the prestige and money of the private sector.

        Community Health Centres have snuck in and the culture is like a cross between being in a Nazi Chinese cross culture selling themselves and their methods as caring and intellectually superior methods, like the Nazi did. Also many are from the culture where women have no rights, religions that do not even believe in science or whatever only in their fundamentalist views, so why are they working in the mental health, psychiatry sector if they are true believers of a religion that owes its power to enslavement of women and therefore children and its aims are destroying the democracy of the West, why are supporters who also fund this involved in Western Scientific Mental Health facilities and Community Health Centres.

        These places like Job Active and its army of job Search providers are opening up in regional areas, they look harmless and are very quite, but it is like having a dangerous sect presenting itself as giving a damn and help you, or helping you get a job. For heavens sake look in the papers, or on seek and places like that or write to places you would like to work, don’t use job search. The same with these places, they destroy people, these community health centres are destroying people and like Job Search it is really hard to get away from them, the trap you, invade you personal and home life, turn your family against you, take up all your time, take you away from work. The see even normal experiences as a problem, they don’t ask or look at why people are depressed, just treat it like some sort of chemical imbalance. It could be but maybe people are depressed for a good reason. Maybe it is intuitive, maybe you husband is cheating on you, or you have some sort of undiagnosed physical problem, menopause, cancer even. I mean they do test for these but then if it is this then it is not depression as a disease it is obviously no one is happy really about being depressed, your husband is acting funny and subconsciously you can’t feel it or sense something is wrong, or he is putting you down to blame you and it is making you feel depressed. So many women who have been abused or cheated on or stolen from are in Mental Health wards, are they suppose to be happy about being treated like that, is it really their problem or societies negligence towards women. It is accepted that women get treated like this and if they react they are depressed, emotional etc but if it happens to a man they are out there blaming complaining, over anything, but it is ok for men to do this to women.

        All the sexual child abuse, the judgments of priests, yes rightly so, but it is men, how dare they do that to me, but women young women are sexually abused every day and men and even the same men don’t bat an eyelid or would even put them down for being overly emotional or carrying on … but when it happens to a man… well

        So COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES ARE LIKE A DISEASE BUT THIS IS GOING UNNOTICED AND IF PEOPLE SPEAK OUT AND THEY ARE UNDER SOME ORDER OR HAVE TO GO THEIR THEY ARE TOO SCARED TO SAY ANYTHING AS THE LOOSER DOCTORS THEIR, THEMSELVES AS BAD AND NUTTY AS ANYTHING, THEY WILL THREATEN THEM WITH MEDICATION, JUST SAY YOU ARE PARANOID OR PSYCHOTIC OR DELUSION OR OVERLY EMOTIONAL OR SCHIZOPHRENIC AND JUST SAY TO THE PEOPLE THEY SPEAK TO I HAD TO MEDICATE THEM AS THEY WERE….. USE SOME RIDICULOUS MEDICAL WORD.

        IF YOU TALK TO ANY OR ARE AROUND ANY PSYCHIATRISTS FOR LONG ENOUGH, WHEN THEY ARE TALKING, TEACHING, DICTATING THEY WILL EVENTUALLY SAY… WELL WE DON’T REALLY KNOW MUCH ABOUT HOW THE MIND WORKS… THEY ALL END UP SAYING THIS. WELL YOU ARROGANT, PUFFED UP, POMPOUS, SUPERIOR BASTARDS, WHY ARE YOU DIAGNOSING PEOPLE, MEDICATING THEM AND PUTTING PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT DANGEROUS INTO PSYCHIATRIC WARDS AND THEN KEEPING HOLD OF COMPLIANT ENOUGH ONES, MIDDLE CLASS DECENT PEOPLE, IN THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES. MAYBE THEY NEED THE BUSINESS. AND THEY WILL NOT DEAL WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE TO YOU MIGHT SAY DISGUSTING WHO REALLY NEED HELP. THEY PREFER TO PREY ON AN TAKE OVER THE LIVES OF DECENT MIDDLE CLASS TO LOWER TO MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE, AS THEY ARE CLEANER, NICER, AND MAYBE TO EMBARRASSED TO SPEAK UP.

        SO COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES NEED TO BE SEEN FOR WHAT THEY ARE AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO OPEN UP ANYWHERE LET ALONE IN REGIONAL AREAS WHERE THEY CAN TAKE HOLD OF PEOPLE IN NEED OR WITH PROBLEMS AND SLOWLY TAKE OVER BY GETTING IN WITH LOCAL COUNCILLORS, MAJORS, MP’S AND ORGANISATIONS AS THE HEROES WHO ARE BELIEVED AND TRUSTED BY THESE GROUPS AND PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE

        .SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES INCASE OR BEFORE OR IF JOB ACTIVE START TO CONNECT AND GET IN WITH THEM, SENDING PEOPLE WHO DO NOT COMPLY TO THEM SAYING THEY ARE DIFFICULT OR PROBLEMATIC OR HAVE “WELFARE ISSUES”. PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO HAVE A BAD DAY OR A PROBLEM WITH A FAMILY MEMBER OR WHAT, HAVE TO MENTION THIS TO JOB SEARCH OR EVEN CENTRELINK THESE DAYS, AND WHEN YOU TURN YOUR BACK THEY ARE ON THE PHONE TO THEIR MATE AT ONE OF THESE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, AND THEN THE NEXT DAY, OUT OF THE BLUE, WITH NO WARNING PERMISSION OR KNOWLEDGE, YOU HAVE SOME SELF RIGHTEOUS EVIL IDIOT TRYING TO LOOK LIKE A REAL HIPPY WITH IT PERSON, TELLING YOU, SOMEONE YOU HAVE NEVER MET, TELLING YOU THAT HE OR SHE THINKS YOU SHOULD COME WITH THEM FOR A SORT OF STAY, STAY IN THE MENTAL WARD OF THE NEAREST HOSPITAL. WHERE YOU ARE MEDICATED, NOT LISTENED TO BECAUSE IMPORTANT PEOPLE FROM A JOB SEARCH AGENCY SUPPORTED BY THE DEPARTMENT THEREIN OF COURSE ON PAPER, HAVE SAID YOU HAVE PROBLEMS OR MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS. BECAUSE THESE DICKHEADS AT JOB ACTIVE HAVE MADE A DIAGNOSIS BECAUSE THEY ARE THAT GREAT AREN’T THEY. THEY HAVE THEN PAST ON THEIR “DIAGNOSIS” TO THE MANAGER OF THE “COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE” THE MANAGER OR WHATEVER OF THE “COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE” THEN PASSES ON THE DIAGNOSIS BY THE DICKHEAD AT THE JOB ACTIVE PLACE TO THE DOCTOR, WHO PROBABLY ALSO ASSUME THAT THE DIAGNOSIS ALSO COMES FROM THE MANAGER OR WHATEVER AT THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE. THEREFORE TWO VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE, THE DICKHEAD AT THE JOB SEARCH AGENCY {SUPPORTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES OF COURSE ON PAPER ANYWAY BECAUSE THAT IS WHO HE WORKS FOR} AND THE RIGHT ROYAL, SPECIAL, TRENDY, HEALTH WORKER SAVING THE COMMUNITY AT THE KIND, LOVING COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE HAVE BOTH SAID THIS PERSON IS DIFFERENT, OR NOT WELL, OR NOT HAPPY, SOME TERM THAT WILL SEND A SECRET MESSAGE TO THE DOCTOR THAT THE PERSON IS NOT RIGHT IN THE HEAD.

        THEREFORE THE DOCTOR WILL TROLL THROUGH HIS MUDDLED MIND, PROBABLY ALSO DUE TO MEDICATION HIMSELF, TO REMEMBER A FEW TERMS THAT IMPRESSED HIM AND MADE HIM FEEL IMPORTANT AT UNIVERSITY, AND COME UP WITH A LOAD OF MEDICAL WORDS THAT MEAN A PERSON IS NOT HAPPY OR SOMETHING. HE WILL MAKE IT SOUND LIKE A “CONDITION”. WHICH IS NOT TO SAY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE CONDITIONS, BUT CONDITIONS ARE ALSO A CREATION OF DICKHEADS AND PEOPLE IN LOVE WITH THEMSELVES, AND ALL THESE PEOPLE HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON, IT IS THAT THEY SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH THEMSELVES, ONLY OTHERS, THEY GET OFF ON HAVING POWER OVER OTHERS WHO DO NOT RECOGNIZE THEM FOR WHAT THEY REALLY ARE, OR WHO DO NOT STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES, BUT WITHOUT GETTING AGGRESSIVE BECAUSE OF COURSE IF ANYONE GETS TOO AGGRESSIVE WITH THEM, BEING AS GREAT AS THEY THINK THEY ARE IT MUST BE THEIR PROBLEM.

        THIS HAPPENS, IS HAPPENING AND IS GETTING WORSE. NOT ONLY THAT IF LIKE ANY NORMAL PERSON YOU TELL THIS SUPERIOR TRENDY “DUDE” WHO WAS PROBABLY RIGHTFULLY DISLIKED AT SCHOOL AND VERY UNCOMFORTABLE TO BE AROUND, IF YOU TELL THIS DUDE WHO NOW HAS FOUND A NICHE HE CAN BE MAKE HIS EVILNESS LOOK GOOD, AND TRENDY, IF YOU TELL HIM OR THEM TO GET LOST OR NOT TO TRESPASS, TO LEAVE. AS YOU WOULD AND SHOULD AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO, HE CAN THEN CALL THE POLICE, WILL WITH A KINDLY, KNOWING PATRONIZING, OLDER BROTHER LIKE KNOWING SAY, NOW I DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO CALL THE POLICE TO TAKE YOU INTO THE MENTAL WARD FORCEABLY, WHICH REALLY MEANS, I HOPE I GET TO CALL THE POLICE TO MAKE SOME CONNECTIONS WITH THEM AND ALSO FOR THE DRAMA IT WILL CAUSE AT THE HOSPITAL AND BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A BIT OF HERO.

        DO ON DOCTORS ORDERS OF COURSE, BASED ON A “DIAGNOSIS” FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES, OF COURSE but really from the Job Provider who has got in with the person at the Community Health Centre…. wham, you are sort of arrested and enforceable dragged of to the Mental Health Ward, the Doctors there will assess you BASED ON THE ASSESSMENTS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, THE POLICE, THE DICKHEAD FROM JOB SEARCH AND THE PATHETIC, SCARED LITTLE SELF RIGHTEOUS, WANTOBE TRENDY AT THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE.

        THE NURSES WILL ALL READ YOUR FILE BASED ON THE DIAGNOSIS AS OUTLINED ABOVE, JUST TO GET TO KNOW YOU BEFORE THEY MEET YOU, AND OF COURSE THIS GIVES THE NURSES, NURSES AT THE MENTAL HEALTH WARD AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO “DOCTORS” POLICE, THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE, AND MAYBE A BIT OF PART TIME WORK AT THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE. SO BEFORE YOU CAN OPEN YOU MOUTH TO COMPLAIN THEY HAVE DECIDED WHO AND WHAT YOU ARE AND KNOW YOU BETTER THAN YOU KNOW YOURSELF APPARENTLY. IF YOU CALL YOUR FAMILY THEY WILL HAVE A QUITE WORK TO THEM ABOUT YOUR PROBLEM, YOU FAMILY SHOULD TELL THEM TO FUCK OFF, AND REPORT THEM, BUT FAMILIES ALSO LISTEN TO IMPORTANT PEOPLE WITH JOBS AND TITLES, AND OF COURSE THE LOVELY NURSES.

        THE LOVELY NURSES….. WELL YES MOSTLY IN NORMAL WARDS POSSIBLY, BUT THE CULTURE OF THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM IN HOSPITALS IS LIKE THE CULTURE OF THE DEPARTMENT, YOU ONLY SURVIVE IF YOU ARE A VIRTUAL NAZI OR ADAPT TO THAT. SOME WHO COME OUT OF UNIVERSITY ARE FANTASTIC, BUT THEY EITHER GET PUSHED OUR OR HAVE TO ADAPT TO BEING LIKE PSYCHOPATHS WHO LIKE THE DEPARTMENT JOBSEARCH, BLAME EVERYTHING ON THE “PATIENT’. AS A PATIENT YOU ARE NO LONGER A PERSON YOU ARE A WALKING TALKING MENTAL HEALTH NUT JOB, JUST LIKE IF YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED YOU ARE STUPID, BAD, AND COMPLETELY INCAPABLE.

        SO HEREIN LIES THE VERY SERIOUS DANGERS OF COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES. I SAW INDIGENOUS PEOPLE ASKING FOR MORE HEALTH WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES ETC. WELL, YES THEY MAY NEED HELP BUT …. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, DO NOT LET THEM GET THEIR HANDS ON ANYONE, ANY TOWN, ANY COMMUNITY.

        IT IS A CULTURE WORSE THAN THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES WHERE THE ATTITUDE TO THE PEOPLE THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO HELP HAS BECOME TWISTED AND IS BASED ON ABUSE. IT IS A CULTURE OF ABUSE, JUST LIKE IT SEEMS THE JOBACTIVE JOB SEARCH GROUPS HAVE MADE CENTRELINK INTO AND MAY HAVE ALWAYS EXISTED IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES.

        THERE NEEDS TO BE AN INVESTIGATION INTO COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES. THEY LOOK SO INNOCUOUS, AND LOVING AND CARING ON THE WEBSITE OR WHEN YOU SEE THE CENTRES, BUT THEY ARE NOT. THEY ARE LIKE CUDDLY LOOKING TIGERS OR A SNOW LION, THEY LOOK SO CUDDLY AND SOFT, BUT WILL RIP YOU TO BITS IF YOU GET INVOLVED. THEY HAVE TO BE INVESTIGATED BUT THEY WILL FOOL PEOPLE, AND IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEIR VICTIMS TO SPEAK UP AND MANY ARE SO DEMEANED THEY PROBABLY BELIEVE THEY ARE THE PROBLEM.

        I HAVE SEEN WHAT HAS BECOME OF DECENT ENOUGH PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS, JUST PEOPLE WITH SOME PROBLEMS WHO WENT TO THEM FOR HELP OR WHERE FORCED THERE. ONE MAN WAS FORCED THERE AND HE HAD THE DOCTOR JUST TURN UP AT HIS FAMILY HOME OVER 15 TIMES. THE DOCTOR, THE DOCTOR WHAT IS A DOCTOR DOING TURNING UP AT SOME ONES FAMILY HOME. HE WAS NOT VIOLENT OR ANYTHING IT WAS JUST SOMEONE TRYING TO GET AT HIM, MAYBE A NEIGHBOR, BUT THE DOCTOR PROBABLY NEEDED A RELATIVELY HARMLESS PATIENT OR SOMETHING.

        THE DOCTOR NOT ONLY WORK AT THE COMMUNITY CENTRE BUT WHEN HE COULD AT THE HOSPITAL AND ANOTHER COMMUNITY CENTRE NEARBY. SO HOW DO PEOPLE GET A SECOND OPINION AND THESE DOCTORS, NURSES, PEOPLE FROM THE DEPARTMENT GET TO THEM BEFORE THE “PATIENT” IS EVEN ALLOWED TO SPEAK, BUT IF THE “PATIENT” DOES SPEAK THEY WILL ABUSE HIM UNLESS HE/SHE GOES ALONG WITH THEM AND AGREES WITH THEM. SO IT IS PLACING PEOPLE VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN VERY VERY DIFFICULT AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY ABUSIVE SITUATIONS TO EXPECT THEM TO SPEAK UP AGAINST THIS.

        SO WHAT CAN BE DONE. WELL IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS TO ANYONE WHO IS NOT EVIL THAT DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS JUST NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN AND WITH THAT ITS TENTACLES JOBACTIVE AND THE NAZI JOB SEARCH ARMY OF AGENCIES. THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, NEEDS TO CLOSE AND START AGAIN. CENTRELINK IS OK AND WILL FOLLOW, HAVE PROVED THEY ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO NOT PUT UP WITH THIS AND SHOULD HAVE DONE OR DO MORE, COMPLAIN TO POLITICIANS ETC AND THEY WERE TRYING TO CLOSE DOWN JOBACTIVE A DECADE AGO. BUT MISSED THE OPPORTUNITY. THEY WILL LOOSE THEIR JOBS IF THEY DON’T.

        THE MENTAL HEALTH SECTOR OF THE GOVERNMENT IS SO BAD, IT NEEDS TO CLOSE DOWN TOO. REALLY. MOST PEOPLE PUT IN MENTAL HEALTH WARDS ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE DRUG PROBLEMS, 70 PER CENT APPARENTLY, YET STILL THEY ARE PUT INTO A MENTAL HEALTH WARD AT A HOSPITAL, INSTEAD OF GETTING THE CARE THEY NEED IN A REHAB PLACE IF THERE ARE ANY GOOD ONES THAT DO HELP AND ARE NOT JUST LIKE ALL THIS EVIL RUBBISH AT JOB SEARCH AND COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES.

        SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER, WELL PEOPLE WHO DO HAVE SERIOUS PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE EFFECTING THEM, DO OFTEN NEED TO STAY SOMEWHERE. SO ACCOMMODATION WITH PEOPLE LOOKING AFTER THEM IS NEEDED.

        SO THE BEST AT PRESENT IS POSSIBLY WHAT IS BEING OFFERED TO DISABLED PEOPLE AND THE ELDERLY IF THEY CAN GET IT RIGHT, WITH SUPPORT FACILITIES PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE – PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES SERIOUS ONES, ARE IN SOME WAYS FINALLY BEING GIVEN SOME POWER AND SAY OVER THEIR OWN LIVES, I RECENTLY SAY A MAN WHO HAS QUITE A DISTINCT MENTALLY DISABILITY, PEOPLE MIGHT SAY HE HAS THE AGE OF A 13 YEAR OLD EVEN THOUGH HE IS IN HIS 60S AND WITH THE NEW NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME. HE IS HAPPY, HE HAS MOVED OUT OF A GROUP HOME, WITH NICE PEOPLE OFFERING A GRANNY FLAT FOR RENT ALSO GIVING HIM THE EXTRA SUPPORT HE NEEDS, AND HE DOES, BUT HE IS JUST THE SAME AS ANYONE ELSE, HE KNOWS WHEN HE IS BEING TREATED BADLY OR LESS THAN OTHERS, AND HAS FOUND A RESPECTFUL SITUATION AND IS HAPPIER THAN I HAVE EVER SEEN HIM, AND HE HAD A BIT OF A TEMPER, NOTHING TOO BAD, BUT DUE TO THE FRUSTRATION OF BEING TREATED BADLY, AND THAT SEEMS TO HAVE IMPROVED TOO. I WOULD NOT BLAME HIM FOR LOOSING HIS TEMPER THE WAY HE WAS TREATED. HAS A BIT OF WORK OR WHAT THEY CALL WORK, DOING WHAT HE WANTS TO DO AT A PLACE HE LIKES AND WHO LIKE TO HAVE HIM THERE TO DO WHAT HE CAN DO, AND EVEN MET A WOMEN HE SAID.

        SO IF PEOPLE WHO HAVE QUITE SERIOUS INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES CAN BE GIVEN A SAY OVER THEIR OWN LIFE, TO LIVE HOW THEY WANT AND CAN, IF ELDERLY PEOPLE CAN AS THEY SHOULD ALSO CHOOSE TO HAVE A PACKAGE TO GET SUPPORT FOR THEM AS THEY AGE, WHY CAN’T PEOPLE WHO ARE UNEMPLOYED GET A PACKAGE TO SUPPORT THEM ALONG WITH THEIR CENTRELINK PAYMENTS, INSTEAD OF BEING ENSLAVED TO EVIL PEOPLE WHO USE AND TREATED THEM HORRIFICALLY FOR THEIR OWN ENJOYMENT, POWER AND MONEY. ALSO PEOPLE WITH WHAT IS BEING CALLED MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS OR PEOPLE WITH OTHER PROBLEMS, THEY NEED EXTRA SUPPORT, BUT ARE USED AND TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AND MADE MUCH WORSE BY PLACES LIKE THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENT RES AND EVEN HOSPITAL WARDS, WHY CAN’T THEY GET A PACKAGE TAILORED TO THEIR NEEDS ALONG WITH PAYMENT FROM CENTRELINK, AND SOME ASSISTANCE WITH IN HOME NEEDS OR SUPPORT OR ACCESS TO A DECENT SORT OF GROUP HOME. THE HOSPITAL ENVIRONMENT IS CONDUCTIVE TO HELL, NOT HEALING, IT IS NOT NURTURING IT IS DISGUSTING. SOME WHERE SAFE AND SUPPORTED PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE, CHOOSE TO STAY.

        SO THIS IS A START, BUT IT HAS TO HAPPEN, IT HAS TO BE CONSIDEED BECAUSE WHAT IS HAPPEN IS THE CREATION OF HELL, A WORLD WHERE VILE EVIL PEOPLE ARE PREYING ON DECENT PEOPLE WHO JUST HAVE NORMAL PROBLEMS REALLY, AND THESE IN A LOT OF WAYS NORMAL PROBLEMS ARE BEING LABELLED AND PACKAGED AS ALMOST CRIMES.

        WITHOUT EXPERIENCE IN THE PRISON SYSTEM OR PSYCHIATRIC WARDS OF PRISON CAN’T COMMENT ON THAT, OBVIOUSLY IF PEOPLE ARE DANGEROUS TO OTHERS THAT IS A PROBLEM, BUT IF PEOPLE JUST HAVE PROBLEMS WHY SHOULD THEY BE TREATED LIKE DANGEROUS PEDOPHILES OR WHATEVER OR WORSE.

        EVEN DANGEROUS PEDOPHILES IN JAIL WOULD NOT HAVE THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME SO TO SPEAK CUT OFF AND BE THROWN OUT ON THE STREET FOR NOT FILLING IN A FORM, OR GOING TO A USELESS MEETING WITH REGARDS TO A JOB.

  27. It’s time! It’s time! for a Royal Commission into the Dept of Employment and also into Centrelink will it be the Greens or the ALP who take up the cause first. Or maybe we will have to wait for Pauline Hanson to go into to bat for us?

    1. That is a great idea! There is so much pain and anguish that has gone hidden for far too long. It needs to come out. We need to break the silence and fear. Read New Scientist December 2016 their is an article on Homeless People titled “Are you an Asshole?”

    2. It makes sense. There have been Productivity Commission Hearings into the Age Pension and there is a current enquiry into the DSP and Job Network customers and Centrelink Customers are not asked their opinion in sufficient numbers to have any statistical validity or sufficient protection of their honesty.

      1. There is such a swing to the right in politics at the moment it is difficult to see if the far right including Senators Hanson and Bernardi will respect the dignity of unemployed people. The job and business situation is changing rapidly pizza makers and pizza deliverers get less than the minimum wage, yet Dominos Pizza shares are $62 each. Businesses have changed from making things to opening food and coffee shops to the main street pawn broker or reseller. Financial businesses such as mortgage brokers are in the main street. And many other shops just consist of family owners with no staff employees. In Asia only 3 per cent of businesses pay tax.

        If unemployed people were given incentives and low cost loans to start businesses then the Franchisee moguls would be ripping the government and the taxpayer off. A friend, over 60, used his superannuation to pay for a Franchise and then the Franchise went broke and they lost everything.

        Just like the Personal Training and Masseuse Course encourage young people to borrow student loans with little hope of a job at the end. It is cost shifting to the course user and the courses employ people on a commission basis to get them to sign up. The unemployed person gets shafted all the time.

        It seems strange that a 22-25 yo can win “Masterchef” or “My kitchen Rules” with recipes from, Croatia, Macedonia, Thailand, Mongolia or India and then a restaurant owner applies for a 457 visa to import a person who takes a local job. The imported chef may not speak English (no language test needs to be passed) and so then all underlings need to speak the language of the chef. Surely the Department of Immigration fees can be used to send an Aussie gal to college to train as a Thai or Vietnamese or speciality Chef. ????

        1. My guess… Bernardi would send everyone to the gas chambers, Hanson would round them up and put them in gulag camps. You might have a shot at getting Hanson to open her mind with enough stories and pressure, but she’d still screw it up. Best shot is Labor, and the Greens are already trying to support and assist but they aren’t getting the media coverage. Push for a Royal Commission. Nothing less will do. This needs to go all the way.

    3. I am a very open minded person. My son is very happily married to a Muslim girl and my daughter married an Australian born Vietnamese. My youngest daughter is active in the marriage equality (GBLTI community) but after 5 years unemployment – and in my 50s – my mind is in a downward spin. I saw a sign on a Breadtopia shop looking for a part-time or full time worker. They wouldn’t even open, read or accept my resume – (Centrelink have me on an agreement to apply for jobs). Don’t get me wrong I am not a bigot or racist – but was my resume not accepted because I didn’t have slanty eyes?

      1. Both sides of politics say they will create jobs. I met a friend from my church on the bus at Marrickville and she said she was on her way to do volunteer work at an op shop. She said it was part of her twice a week commitment to Centrelink. I had a little cry inside as I know she is really good with computers and could do much better if only given a chance. It seems like the only businesses which are opening up are coffee shops – usually family businesses which are not looking for full -timers.. The other shops opening up are Op shops – Red cross, Save the Children, Epiliepsy foundation, Vinnies, Salvos and other charities. With the Newstart payment being $340 below the poverty line it would be nice to hear these organisations speaking out louder for us.

        Silence is golden, Cha-ching! Cha-ching go their cash registers at our expense. Perhaps we could have a National one-day strike by volunteers? Can I suggest the Thursday before Good Friday. Volunteers could ask to work a different day if they have a Job Network plan or get a doctors certificate so they don’t get in trouble.

        1. A National Strike of volunteers is just so good an idea. Please AUWU get behind this and start organising. Empowering us to speak out about what e contribute to Australia in mutual obligation in return for the meager Newstart Allowance. Afterall, Hank “what’s his name” in Centrelink media relations got a medal for his press releases degrading Australian citizens in poverty. My church in return argues “Make poverty History” but still likes to have workers in op shops and pay them zilch.

      2. SBS is featuring a program FU2Racism (Face Up to Racism) in late February – Will SBS explore inverse racism where darker skinned people don’t employ those with white skin?

        In Asian countries only 3 per cent of people pay taxes. This attitude is placing additional stress on australia’s economic system and this is why Treasurer Morrisson is saying he hasn’t got enough money because people expect benefits when they arrive but avoid taxes when they set up businesses.

  28. I was having dentistry done it would take one year.During that time i was warned I would need numerous days off while i healed.No problems i was just made unemployed…i would do a course over the year and get back into retail sales since i could smille again.
    First problem came when mission employment closed and Statewide Employment took over.My first case manager was more concerned about her new genital piercing…second case manager said she would get me some information about courses be back in a minute and through the glass windows i watched her talking to a guy then lowering her pants to show her new tatt (I am 47 yrs old) I was left in the office for 30 mins.she never once went out the back.When she saw me watching she came back in the room and said sorry their is nothing at the moment.
    A few months later thay told me i had to work for the dole.No problem I had already picked a place called the shed.They do voluntary work for the council and people around them.It met all the the criteria and was a good way to get my foot in the door to work for the council.This was shot down because Statewide wasnt part of this and there was to much red tape.I was given a small test to do and it revealed I had social problems and they would take me off the work for the dole.Instead i was placed on one their programmes called ‘back on track’.For two weeks , every day.They couldnt give me a bus ticket because I didnt hold a concession card.while doing this course I asked about how do I get into a course.I was told to bring the information in and they would get someone to help me….After three days of asking I finally gave up.The worst part of the course was the fact they had one person doing the course and every day new people would turn up.This meant You could get any help , because the poor girl had to keep backtracking.When a few of complained of this they came up with a solution.Instead of 2 hours a day the course would now run for 3 hours a day.
    After getting no where I was determine to at least get work for the dole.However when I asked Case manager number 8 she informs me I not eliglible for Work for the dole or volunteer work.I havent been unemployed long enough.When it came to signing agreements I was handed a form and told to read it then sign.When I told her I would not sign she told me fine I would cut off the dole.She never asked why all that I had no choice.I still decline signing it.Without going to the manager she contacted centrelink and inform them..getting me suspended straight away.I still declined,she made the phone call.Centrelink told me of everything that would happen if I didnt agree to signing the form…near the end of the conversation I was finally asked why I wouldnt.I told them..”it was someone elses agreement she had handed me”.
    Case manager 9.I cold canvass a large area by walking.(i have no licence).I queried about getting some new clothes for job interviews..He said he would arrange it…But guess what,when I went enquire about clothing i was told I would have to take that up with my new case manager.
    Statewide Elizabeth has the largest staff turn over I have ever seen.When i saw they were advertising for a position I was amazed you dont need any qualifications.

    1. Isn’t it amazing! Gerald Centrelink can cause you to shit your pants, have a stroke or heart attack and not be accountable because they are covered by Commonwealth law! The Department of Employment can make rules which make you so despairing or fearful that you jump into the Brisbane river or kill yourself by driving into a tree and they are still above Queensland Coronial law. Even if they hassled you so much that you drove down a city pedestrian mall and killed yourself and six people Centrelink, the Department of Employment and the Job Network employee with the new genital piercing or tatt would NOT have to go to court to say why they had overlooked your suicidality or hadn’t provided the bus ticket to get to the job interview!!! Let’s all shit our pants in empathy with you Gerald! Because what else can we do so that we can still care for our families and those we love? ALL SHE SAID “AFTER PULLING DOWN HER PANTS TO SHOW HER TATTOO WAS – SORRY THERE IS NOTHING AT THE MOMENT”. It sounds they have gone down the same road as the pedophiles in the Catholic Church!

  29. Recently placed into a job by my jobactive provider with a company called All Seasons Caretaking in Melbourne. All seemed to be OK for 4 months, then I was dragged (like a criminal) into the operations manager’s office for a “chat”. I was told I was losing my job due to: gardening not being my forte, I was not cut out for the job, I do not cut the mustard etc etc. This was baffling to me as I had no feedback from anybody that I was doing a bad job! And I worked with quite a few staff members in those 4 months, and we got the work done. The strange thing, it was at this point I saw on my payslips I had been paid just over $10,000 in those 4 months. This is curious as I am over 50 and my jobactive provider had been talking about the $10,000 wage subsidy for jobseekers of my age or older. Perhaps a wage subsidy was paid in this instance and I was told to go as soon as that money paid to the employer had expired? I do not know for sure if that has happened here? But it seems to be an incredible co-incidence. I noticed when I was at this company that the management boasted about very frequent sackings, also I met others who had been placed in this company by jobactive providers. Most of them disappeared after a few weeks or a month or two and they all seemed to be older than 50. Maybe this company is doing something wrong with these wage subsidies? I don’t know who to report this situation to. My jobactive provider knows what happened, but they do not seem to care. I am telling this story so other jobseekers are aware of what is happening out there-possible misuse of wage subsidies by dodgy employers.

  30. Hi Glen
    this is not a coincidence.

    It is the employer and job active provider rorting the system.

    Write a letter to Brendan O’Connor, Shadow Minister for employement at Parliament house canberra.

  31. Universal Basic Income needs to be implemented in Australia very soon.
    We are officially in a war of attrition against the Commonwealth, acting as part of the revolution for autonomous individuality.
    If you own private property, please declare your autonomy on these properties as an independent state within your state.

    Declaring autonomy on private property allows you to disconnect from ‘the grid’, you may also distribute your own currency, have the choice not to disclose any income details, exercise the right to use equivalent force against insurgents of your autonomy (This includes using the same tactics as the Police would, i.e, you can develop munitions for self-defence, submit and arrest agents of the Police)

    You may also organise into Militant Unions if the ADF get involved. They do not like to lose home soil, so you must take appropriate
    reactionary measures to ensure yourself and your family recieve the security to survive in this current global climate.

  32. Opposition Leader Matthew Guy is criticising a new Technical School in Lilydale that encourages student to do IT – This is a high demand industry wanting lots of workers and taking 457 workers from overseas. A Real Estate Website has threatened to go offshore if it can’t import workers. There are lots of Aussie IT workers looking for work. We should not support oveseas websites using overseas workers. If the Real Estate website goes off shore or imports 457 workers – Well let them fail BADLY! Keep away from Booking.com also because it is a Netherlands website.

    1. Hi Tim I totally agree. Trump is tough saying to American companies if they go to Mexico they will face higher import taxes. The American companies are starting to listen and changing strategies to re-locate outside the US.

      Now we have Universities saying we do not have enough talent and knowledge in Australia. They say they need 457 visas. What baloney! Cuba trains 3000 doctors each year to graduation statndard, and another 500 scholarships for Black, hispanic and poor US citisens.
      We don’t even bother to get enough Drs for us here.

      I have a PhD and am 55 – Indian employment law prevents me from getting a Uni teaching job cos I am over 50 yo.

  33. I went for my usual weekly check in with Mission Providence (you know, because I am such a lazy butt and stay at home doing nothing). Whilst trawling through Seek, my CSO comes over and plants herself next to me and asks me how the job hunting has been going. Yeah, great…4 interviews in one day and four rejections the following week from said companies. The branch manager waltzes in and without knowing my background, demands that I should be looking for retail jobs (nope, not doing that again, my feet and back are a wreck from working at a supermarket). I told her that I have at least 15 years admin experience. She then throws jobs at me that are accounts related (payable, receivable, bookkeeping, MYOB). I explained that I have little to no experience with accounts as all of my admin roles has not required it. She promptly told me that I am useless for any kind of admin role because I have no accounts experience. She then goes on to put down any effort that I have made (not good enough even when I apply for 120 jobs a month) and tells me that there must be something wrong with me and my interview skills if I cannot get a job. She then swiftly walks out.

    I am already fragile enough with how my job ended, the amount of rejections I am getting and not being able to pay my bills to the point I am getting threatening phone calls and letters. Why this old biddy thought it was her right to speak to me like a piece of crap is beyond me. I don’t care if she is having a bad day or not, don’t take it out on those who are already fragile.

    Why am I not complaining to Mission Providence? Because they are the people who can push buttons, lies and stop me from getting say kind of payment. I already feel,like I am a social outcast and scum of the universe, but hey, let’s just dig the knife in more.

  34. Anyone ever heard of RAPAD Employment Services? they are out in regional QLD. PAIN IN THE ASS is what they are. FULL TIME Work for the dole.. so 27/7 all 12 months of the year not the allocated 26 wk centrelink require!! No choice in the activity either… to bad if you have physical or mental limitations and CAN NOT do the work. 50hours/fortnight for all ages for 18 thru to 55!!!! no exceptions! 40+ days in the hot seasons and down to 5 in the cold we have to goto WFD.. im pretty sure the slaves had it better. oh and if you get injured on a work site.. no incident report gets filled out. no record of it ever occurring just sweep it all under the rug.. so no proof to claim to work cover

    Oh your way out west, forgotten about from your city cousins. good job government way to screw the outback people who actually want to work but no rain means no jobs!!!!

    RAPAD Employment services – don’t find you jobs, don’t up skill you with courses (hell they don’t even offer any courses), they just buy expensive tools and equipment that sits in sheds never to be used (unless privately by staff) drive around in govt fleet cars as their own personal cars.
    I personally have been injured on a work site while doing Work For The Dole, no work cover claim put through. now i have to live with chronic back pain, hands that work only sometime. The jobs i loved doing i can no longer endure.

    Watch out for places like this! regional people get it worse.

  35. I am currently doing work for the dole (which I have also done once before in the last 2 years). I am experiencing repeated bizarre bossy and bullying type behaviour from another older WFTD participant. The place I am at (a charity in Boronia-Melbourne) does sorting of donated goods such as : clothing, shoes, books and other miscellaneous items. not overly difficult but plenty of manual handling risks if you are not careful. I already have an ongoing lower back injury from 17 years ago. Anyway this bullying WFTD participant yells at me and other WFTD participants because according to him we are not fast enough to load vans with heavy boxes, bags etc and also over other such trivial matters such as picking up books out of baskets and trolleys and packing into boxes. How can you pick up heavy/very heavy items in a fast and aggressive manner-which this person wants us to do? So much for careful handling of heavy items so as to avoid manual handling injuries. He also drops other derogatory comments about WFTD participants. Seems like he wants to be the boss of all the other WFTD participants at this site and is somehow superior to everybody. As far as I am concerned, this is not a real job, it’s only bloody WFTD and all WFTD participants are equal and should only be taking orders and instructions from immediate supervisors, not some clown on a power trip. Other WFTD participants-wherever they are, need to be aware of this type of nonsense and should not have to tolerate it-us jobseekers have enough to deal with already and don’t need WFTD to be more hell than what it already is. Other jobseekers and all other WFTD slave labour participants be careful of situations like this.

  36. More crap from Employment Services Group-Jobactive provider (Ringwood). Recently sent on a 5 day training course-“traffic management” which involves obtaining a white-card (needed for work on construction sites) and learning how to manage traffic/stop/go slow signs etc around roadworks and level crossing removal sites etc. OK, I might get something out of it, fair enough I thought. Told my useless consultant I already have a white-card (which does not expire). He said just go over to nearby shopping centre on the white card training day and grab a coffee, sit in a café etc, and attend other training in afternoon-but there was no other training scheduled that afternoon! The white card training was held today-I notified the training school where I was sent the day before the scheduled white card training, showed them the actual white card and told them I obtained it last year, they photocopied it and said since you already have a white card, then you do not need to attend the white card training today. But of course I have to attend the other days which involve learning the actual traffic-management. I get a phone call today from a stupid consultant at Employment Services Group asking me did I attend the training? No benefit of the doubt given to me. Of course I attended the other days, just not today because I already have a white card and should not to have to do training for something I already have obtained. I told him to ring the training school if he had any issues with this. It seems like some kind of communication stuff-up has occurred here, because you have to sign-in each day you attend the training, and I definitely was told by training school not to attend today because I don’t want or need 2 white cards! It is illogical. Perhaps the training school has sent the sign-on form through to my jobactive provider with no signature beside my name even though I told the incompetent fools I already have a frickin’ white card and obviously the people in the office of this training school don’t communicate with each other or the jobactive provider consultants. In other words the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. This is all causing significant stress to myself and is approaching a clusterfuck of near mammoth proportions. These jobactive morons are as dumb as a box of hammers, a tinny short of a sixpack, a kangaroo short in the top paddock and wouldn’t know a tram was up ’em unless it rang it’s bell. I wouldn’t piss in their ears if their brains were on fire! So frustrated!!!!!!!!

  37. I have PTSD. Attending my Job Service Provider has become untenable after all the bullying and irrational demands. If living below the poverty line isn’t impossible enough, knowing you can never comply with their requests because of you’re PTSD and being cut off the dole for non compliance, is enough to push you over the line. Last visit i was left so traumatised i was sunk down on the stairs outside the job service provider office having an anxiety fit shaking and barely able to hold onto the railing. Took a day of vomiting & shaking prior just to get to the interview, followed by bullying at the interview as always and arguments about my medical certificate being lost in space yet again from both Centrelink and the JSP, followed by another half an hour in the carpark after all the horror to steady myself. Takes 2 days to recover after every visit and i’m threatened with non compliance cut off every time. And to think i was working part time and a hell of lot healthier before Centrelink got involved. This government is criminally abusive. We need a Royal Commission.

    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.

  38. I lost my partner to suicide a year ago, as I had returned home to find him I suffered a major trauma as a result of this situation. I phoned Centrelink to aaaist with bereavement but they would not give me any financial support as we had not advised them that we are in a relationship – it is the first situation in my life that has literally stopped me in my steps moving forward and there lack of care to assist was concerning! I could prove the relationship with friends police the coroner Facebook which shows our time of loving each other yet because we weren’t officially registered on Centrelink’s database as in a relationship then they wouldn’t help me. I went on to get assistance with my trauma from the coroners office , arbor and the Meade clinic whom all were so supportive yet financially I was hit majorly due to Centrelink’s lack of understanding that I could prove our relationship and his suicide! I will never forget the governments impacts it had on me during a time where I actually needed it!

    1. Sue for mental anguish and pain and suffering you have rights they have duty of care,g et legal advice,there lack of compassion and bad judgment and lack of respect for basic human rights was violated they have rules to follow and they didn’t abide by them they are accountable stop them Standover and bullying the unfortunate/vulnerable clients have a voice.Yoy have right in this country to be heard,thats why people are allowed to vote.

  39. Stop Centrelink harassing,bullying,standung over the honest people,who are vulnerable,and put in the junkies,alcholics routing the disability pension one who on sixty minutes that raved how she lives like a queen on her pension overseas has ruined portability for people with wife,children&family overseas because of here disregard for anyone,she fortunately he her disability pension revoked because she was of sound mind and found to defraud Centrelink by blackmailing a doctor to sign medical certificate claiming she was unemployable for over two years and her health won’t get better.

  40. I think Centerlink is a private company.
    If you go to “ABN Lookup” you will find they have many Australian Business Numbers. These two ABNs below are good examples of that.
    29 468 422 437 Department of Human Services trading as Centrelink 2603 ACT.
    75 174 030 967 Department of Human Services trading as Medicare Australia 2900 ACT.
    I think each Centerlink office is a franchise just like your local KFC is a franchises.
    If Centerlink is a private company then all their dealings with people are contractual by nature therefore they can be taken to court and sued for breaching their contract with you. For example if they state they will provide you with a particular product or service and they fail to do that then you can take them to court for breach of contract.
    When they say “you must do this and that” you can say “show me where in the contract between us does it state that?”
    The same goes for the Job Service Providers.

  41. Can these service providers force you or threaten to cut you off if you do not sign into your personal MY GOV account at a meeting in there office ,, I thought your log in details are private and i am not sure i want to log into one of there computers, They tried this on me years ago and i refused and then was bullied by several of there staff,,, Workways

  42. I’ve been unemployed for five years and recently was forced to change network providers I was supposed to look for ten jobs s month which prilovably ten too many I have a criminal record which precludes from some types of work and live in a town which has a relatively high unemployment level opportunity is limited I’ve done work for the dole about three times whilst it a activity I agree to through the desperation I experience it has not led to anything other than a return to newstart my new provider increased my efforts to fifteen jobs after I explained my situation I used the wlexpression ” I’m fucked to describe my situation obviously she s a little fucken bitch to me the job networks are simply blatantly exploitative but in capitalist society you got to forget humanitarian ideas the bottom line in all of this is people is most evidently arseholes ie they want the world this way you know billions on fucken war and a pittance for the unemployed I’m over it and realise that this society is in a major denial ie there ain’t enough jobs so what do you expect yep unemployment I sincerely believe that this scenario occurs because of peoples ignorance or perhaps it is a mental health i ssues which as a majority they are able to avoid being diagnosed for is the tyranny of the majority seems to be at play anyway thought I’d vent I’m 53 and have little or no hope of finding job I want to leave the town but my son who is school age wants to stay anyway bye for now keep up the struggle

  43. Has anybody had their payments suspended multiple times with no prior warning? I have had this happen several times recently, I’m a solo mother just got my finish full-time study and got my diploma in at the end of March. I am now in WFD plus mandatory reporting and 10 JobSearch per month. Today I woke up to a text saying my payments were suspended and to contact my provider. I finally got through to my provider after being forwarded to several different operators and having to explain my dilemma over and over again. Atwork claimed it was a Centrelink problem, the problem being that despite my submission of 10 required JobSearch through the myGov jobactive website (that I was pressured into using), my JobSearch was showing up as incomplete. They then directed me to Centrelink. Centrelink told me it was nothing to do with them only my job provider could reinstate my nSA. I contacted atwork once again they lectured me and told me to resubmit my JobSearch and nothing could be done to reinstate my payments til the problem was fixed, so I was once again fowarded to Centrelink the department I was referred to was the incorrect department (all of this happening whilst I was catching the train into my Work For the Dole position). Centrelink Swore black and blue they could do nothing there must of been a ‘technical glitch’ they would not allow me to talk to any supervisor or anybody else. I completed my whole Work For the Dole shift and was still on the phone with them and being out on hold over and over. I called at 9.30am it was 4.45pm when they finally said that they could accept the screen shot of my applied jobs and lift the stop on my payments. No body would take responsibility for this loss of my JobSearch submission. They were disgruntled and told me it I needed to prioritise if I wanted my payments reinstated today, I could go home and find my backups of my JobSearch rather than pick-up my son from school abd take him to his Coding class.
    I still have demerits on my account for an Work For the Dole activity I attended but the provider overlooked my signing in and out of the volunteer log. I am scared this is going to happen again and I will not be able Provide meals or accomodation for my child. As being on Newstart has left me living week-to-week.
    I am so stressed I can’t sleep, every person out of the 8 or 9 staff menebers today have me a different answer and I don’t know who to believe or how to rectify these problems.
    Any advice would be kindly appreciated.

    Ps I emailed them several times last week and they never responded as my case worker was away, how can I prevent the sudden stop of my payment when I can’t even get a response from them. I have never felt so powerless and belittled in my life.

  44. I tried to book a re-engagement appointment (as i did not attend an activity’s last day), but my provider wants me to start a 35hr a week “Skills and Jobs Australia course” first (which i felt pressured into signing), before she books a re-engagement appointment (????).

    1. And to make matters worse, they haven’t electronically removed me from my old activity (my old activity shouldn’t appear in my “your tasks to do” section of my jobsearch, because my “Skills and Jobs Australia course” is replacing the old activity).

  45. Right. Fuck the Government whether it be Labor or Liberal. I started work in 1973 at age 15 with the ATO naturally taxing me. I had to work two jobs to pay for basic living expenses. Like a fool worked all me life and in the winter of my life Julia Gizzard nicely announces in her condescending voice that after a life time of paying tax and working in a hard labour industry I cannot get the aged pension at 65 but at 66.5. Naturally, the greedy Liberal bastards helped her pass the law required. Well fuck you Oz government -:you want to fuck me, I will fuck you first and harder.! I do not buy the bullshit about not being able to afford to pay the pension because of too many baby boomers.

    The government spends millions on getting involved in US wars, paying idiot amounts to politicians both income, super and pensions, foreign aid to countries that hate us and fueling battleships to seize dope off the African coast plus the insane drug prohibitions in their stupid war on drugs.

    You get unemployed and are treated like scum. I don’t buy the massive dole bludger witch hunt or the need to drug test Newstart recipients.

    Come 65 I will leave Australia and never pay paye tax again. Yes I will be in some fleshpot cheap country partying hard – no more 500 to 600 bucks a week tax. And I will tell you something I AM NOT ALONE. FUCK THE GOVERNMENT – THIS IS WAR – VLADIMIR

  46. Dumb and dumber: how jobactive fails the unemployed. Employment consultant: “Do you really want to find a job?” Jobseeker: This is the third time I’ve been asked this question, is this an edict from management, a cunning new strategy to flush out the non-genuine jobseeker? It’s a very clever strategy, if I answer “No”, I’m clearly insane as my Newstart Allowance will be cut off. So there is only one possible answer, “Yes”, whether I’m genuine or a shirker. Gee, I’ve got to hand it to these guys, they are so on point with their interrogation technique that it makes Robert De Niro, Meet The Parents (2000) look like a rank amateur.

    1. This actually happened by the way, but I was so blindsided by the stupidity of the question I didn’t come up with the best answer, which is actually another question: “Do you really want to help me find a job?”.

  47. So I am a late 30’s admitted early career solicitor, the Brisbane job market for someone like me is horrible but hey I did something to help me upskill and get some experience. I started my masters degre (so doesn’t come under austudy) and I got a volunteer place for 1 day a week at a community legal centre, helping those who don’t have access to other options for legal representation. Today I was put on wftd, this work for the dole placement is in town while I live in logan, its 4 days a week for 7 hours a day. This committment makes it more than a part time job. It also means I can no longer attend my study which was going to offer me more avenues to get employed in my field and I can no longer attend my volunteer committments, all so I could go to this rinky dink charity and push paper for them. I have been working since i was 16 in a large variety of roles but the minute I have a degree no entry lower jobs want to hire me, my lovely consultant has done everything she can to keep me off WFTD and she does try to help me but these rules put in place by centrelink have made it impossible for me to do what I have spent the last 7 years training for. I am a LNP voter and I don’t think I have ever wanted to see a labor government put in before now, just to toss centrelink off their rocker.

  48. I see they lie and they do, and try and force people to sign so-called privacy statements against their will under duress financial hardship and entrapment.
    Not necessary for them to access any “sensitive information “,not medical records under doctor patient confidentiality laws, they are not doctors.
    Not sexual preferences or practices which are intimate., no employers have the right to ask you about your genitals and intimate sex life, sexual harassment in the workplace as a client.
    They falsify your official records(how would they get this information)
    This socalled legislation is not necessary nor needed, no “need”, Human Rights violations.
    Under no circumstances is considering yourself a Human Being who has the right to privacy, self respect and dignity considered a crime nor something to hide nor a mental health issue.
    International Human Rights Laws under the Geneva convention apply in Australia therefore illegal and unnecessary legislation.
    Information accessed via duress, entrapment, threats, coerson not consent, nor is the claim to circulate it to anyone without your knowledge or consent, consent.
    They straight out lie which is illegal, about of things.
    They do not need to access any of this information at all.
    Selling it to database collectors for parasitical financial gain.
    10 Billions dollars of taxpayers money wasted, you are not a thing nor their property, they violate rights if people do not know their rights.
    Bring back the A. -Z of legal rights book we used to have available, free if unemployed, low cost otherwise, lawyers advertise on them too.
    What they are doing is illegal.
    Sue them personally not the tax payer.
    Centrelink legislation not legal nor necessary under Geneva International Human Rights Laws which do apply here in Australia.
    Nor do employers, nor online employment sites or other sites have the right nor need to access this information accessed by entrapment, duress or ignorance, not consent.
    They need to be forced to remove it., no need nor right.
    “Associates, third parties, individuals” etc, etc, public disclosure and theft of your information and violation of your person and life.
    Say No, I do not consent.
    “Of My Own Divine Free Will By Divine Right”
    These people are the public servants paid by the tax payer, I gave worked most my life and paid tax.
    Get rid of most of them and have Centrelink only again(not them employed at Centrelink either) , carefully monitored and electronic job boards at Centrelink.
    I saw on a comment they push some people to suicide , they do it deliberately, a sick game…..
    My friend was suicidal after a jobnetwork provider , I calmed her down and gave her encouragement she would find a job.
    I was on part Centrelink benefits over 5 years ago and still have PTSD from it.
    Also the claim to include photos of medical care, who has photos taken of their medical care, only those assaulted, domestic violence, sexual assault, assault for police/court evidence not for their perverted entertainment or parcitical financial gain when they sell it to market research database collectors.
    They do what they can to prevent people from gaining meaningful employment.
    They falsify your official records under “opinion does not have to be fact” if you refuse to give them your payslips for jobs you already have before you have the misfortune of having them forced on you under duress, financial hardship.
    Stream 1 new start no reason for them at all, most do nothing to help you seek or do employment not even a CV.

  49. Hi,
    I forgot to mention yesterday that if you do not agree with the unnecessary access of your so-called “sensitive”information.
    Take it home as stayed by others to carefully read it or get help with it.
    You can also cross out with pen ink with a straight line with regards to any words or clauses unethical or inappropriate and beating sign it with your initials same as any contract emendments (changes)
    If the claim you can not do that take a photo copy and polite demand they put that full explanation in writing legally via email.
    Check websites of employers and if the are unethical and unnecessarily intrusive with regards to their application process do not use their products or services.
    I am going to do this with everything I buy or use, everything, and do my best not to use their businesses or products or services, collective consumerism.

    Thank you for this amazing site although I have not received part payments for 5 years in February, Thank God, literally.
    I will keep your contact details and phone numbers with Community Services information for anyone I meet that may need it as many people may not know this great site and very much needed help exists.
    Thanks😊

  50. PS, (last comment mention), politely demand all contracts or documents in hard paper copy for possible changes.
    Also photo copy any unethical unnecessary conditions of employers websites and if you are pushed against your will under duress (stress, threats, coerson, intimidation, lies etc, duress -financial hardship, and a Human Rights violations toi, and also not legal.
    Email the Company immediately politely with this issue and still apply, application then therefore still legit.
    If they refuse ask them via email for a full explanation as to why they “need” this unnecessary information.
    Read my other comments, there are several.
    Last one for now.
    Bye and God Protect +Bless😊

  51. Hi, sorry, truly the last comment.
    Email your Doctor, Dentist, anyone that may have your “sensitive”(so-called) very extremely private information that you do not consent but are being pushed against your will under duress -financial hardship or threats financial hardship and for them not give any of your information with your hard paper copy consent.
    Regardless of the so called new unnecessary laws which are a violation of Human Rights under the International Geneva Convention which Australia is a part of.
    Many of these so-called laws are in fact truth actually illegal.
    Say No, politely firmly.
    Also say No to the my health database.

  52. The horror stories on this site are due solely to the Liberal National Party and Australian Labor Party swine politicians who bang the “dole bludger paranoia ” drum while sucking he guts out of the treasury with their idiotically high salaries, super and perks. Vote the swine out and keep them voted out. Australia does not need a religious nutcase like Scott Morrison as PM so vote to kick the fucker out!

THEY ARE GETTING RICH OF MAKING THE POOR AND UNEMPLOYED POORER AND MORE UNEMPLOYABLE.

    THEY ARE FORCING REGIONAL PEOPLE TO GET FULL-TIME JOBS THAT DON’T EXIST AND THEREFORE DRIVING THEM OUT OF THEIR COMMUNITIES AND AWAY FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS ON TO THE STREETS UNLESS THEY DON’T GET JOBS THAT DO NOT EXIST.
    THS JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE INVADING THE REGIONAL AND CITY AREAS, THEY ARE TAKING ALL THE TAX PAYERS MONEY MEANT TO HELP PEOPLE IN NEED.
    SIMPLY IF THE GOVERNMENT SHUT THIS CORRUPT NETWORK DOWN AND GAVE THE BILLIONS THEY STEAL FROM THE UNEMPLOYED TO LOCAL BUSINESSES AND ORGANISATION TO EMPLOY LOCAL PEOPLE PART-TIME, IF THEY SHARED IT AROUND WITH PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT FOR LOCAL PEOPLE GIVING IT TO LOCAL ORGANISATION, THEN LOCAL PEOPLE,YOUNG PEOPLE CAN STAY IN THEIR REGIONS.

    1. – STOP THE CORRUPT NETWORK OF JOBACTIVE JOB SEARCHER PROVIDERS –
      – BEFORE THEY DESTROY THE FABRIC OF OUR AUSTRALIAN WAY OF LIFE –
      – DO NOT LET THEM TURN ALL PAYMENTS INTO ONE “WELFARE” PAYMENT –

      – IT MIGHT SOUND OK BUT IT WILL BE HELL, THE END OF THE AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRATIC WAY OF LIFE, THE LOSS OF ALL RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, AND THE ABUSE OF THE INDIGENOUS, WOMEN ETC, ESPECIALLY MORE MATURE WOMEN AND YOUNG GIRLS, AS WELL AS MEN AND WHITE MEN ARE JUST AS AT RISK OR MORE SO THAN OTHERS –

      – SO LETS ALL JOIN TOGETHER AS ONE NATION, WHETHER, WHITE OR BLACK – STOP GOING ON ABOUT RACE, CULTURE AND RELIGION, AND EVEN POLITICS FOR A MOMENT AND DO SOMETHING ABOU JOBACTIVE BEFORE IT DOES SOMETHING ABOUT ALL OF US – WE MUST FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL AUSTRALIA AND EACH OTHER AND STOP THIS ROT ON OUR WELFARE SYSTEM, OUR FAIR GO FOR ALL AUSTRALIANS AND THE ABUSE OF PEOPLE IN NEED AND PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST OUT OF WORK – BIG DEAL- IT IS NOT A CRIME – THEY ARE THE PROBLEM – NOT UNEMPLOYMENT. UNEMPLOYMENT, PROBLEMS, FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES, DISABILITY, THIS IS NOT A CRIME IT IS A NORMAL PART OF LIFE, NOT PLEASANT IN MANY WAYS BUT IT IS NOT A CRIME. IT IS TIME TO STOP THIS ATTITUDE TO THE UNEMPLOYED, AND THE BAD PUBLICITY AND … JOBACTIVE AND ITS PROVIDERS. READ ON PLEASE….

      JOBACTIVE PROVIDERS WERE CORRUPT FROM THE BEGINNING, YOU CANNOT SURVIVE IN THAT ORGANISATION IF YOU ARE NOT CORRUPTED TO THE CORE, EVIL. THIS EVIL NETWORK OF DISFUNCTIONAL HUMAN BEINGS THAT LIKE PARASITES GROW RICH OFF THE UNEMPLOYED AND POOR – YES IT IS MEANS TESTED – SO WHY ALL THE MONITORING AND FEAR OF WRONG DOING BY THE UNEMPLOYED. THEY ARE CORRUPTED DEADBEATS IN SUITS, SUPPORTED BY THE FEMALES WHO FOR SOME STUPID REASON ENJOY MEN LIKE THIS. PEOPLE WHO GET OFF ON HAVING POWER OVER THE POOR AND ENJOY BRINGING DOWN THE MIDDLE CLASSES EVEN, SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN POWER OVER ANYONE OR ANYTHING.
      PEOPLE WHO ENJOY SEEING THE DESTRUCTION OF THE DECENT MIDDLE CLASS AUSTRALIANS EVEN, SO NO MATTER WHAT CULTURE OR RACE, IT IS TIME FOR AUSTRALIANS OF ALL RACES AND CULTURES, WHITE AND BLACK TO JOIN TOGETHER, AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS MAFIOSO, COMMUNIST MILITARY AUTOCRATIC STYLE NETWORK OF LOOSERS, IN THEIR FAKE CORPORATE STYLE NYLON SUITS FROM THEIR LOCAL DISCOUNT STORE THAT MAKES THEM FEEL LIKE THE POWER BROKERS OF THE CORPORATE WORLD.
      WOULD DECENT, INTELLIGENT CORPORATE ORGANISATIONS EMPLOY PEOPLE LIKE THAT IN THEIR CORPORATIONS, NO, THEY WOULD NOT PASS THE FIRST DAY, THEY MAY PASS THEIR INTERVIEW WITH THE FAKE SUIT AND DECEITFUL CHARM AND FALSE FAÇADE OF SOPHISTICATION AND I REALLY DO GIVE A S… AND I AM NOT BONE LAZY REALLY, NO REALLY I WORK REALLY HARD. I AM NOT BONE LAZY AND POWER CRAZY TO GET OTHER PEOPLE TO DO ALL THE WORK NO THAT IS NOT ME I AM NOT LAZY… FAKE FRONT, YES THIS MIGHT GET THEM THROUGH AN INTERVIEW BUT, ANY DECENT CORPORATE ORGANISATION WOULD KNOW AFTER THE FIRST DAY OR WEEK, THEY WOULD DESTROY THEIR GOOD NAMES AND SEND THEIR CLIENTS RUNNING TO ATSIC OR DEPARTMENT OF FAIR TRADING OR THE MEDIA FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE, IN ABOUT A WEEK.
      SO WHY ARE POOR PEOPLE BEING FORCED TO BE TRAINED BY PEOPLE IN NETWORK THAT HAS BEEN DERANGED AND GROWN IS EVIL SINCE IT BEGINNING. WHY, BECAUSE THE PEOPLE THEY ARE EXPLOITING ARE POOR, AND SLOWLY AND DECEITFULLY CENTRELINK, THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES, HAVE JOINED WITH THEM, BEEN UNMINED EVEN, SEDUCED BY THE ALLURE OF POWER, THE JOBACTIVE NETWORK HAVE CONNED THE POLITICIANS INTO THINKING THEIR CORPORATE KINGS, BUT THE ARE THE UNDERWORLD OF THE CORPORATE WORLD, THOSE THAT WOULD NEVER THEMSELVES GET AN OFFICE JOB EXCEPT IN THEIR OWN FAKE “CORPORATE NETWORK POWER RUBBISH THEY PUSH OUT FROM UNSKILLED, UNEDUCATED, BADLY ATTUNED, IGNORANT, SLIGHTLY DERRANGED BUT CERTAINLY MONEY HUNGRY, DRUNK ON POWER, DELUDED OVER CONFIDENT, MINDS
      STOP THIS ROT UNDERMINING OUR WELFARE SYSTEM AND USING AND EXPLOITING IT TO NOT JUST GET RICH BUT TO ALSO “GET POWER” OVER DECENT AUSTRALIANS OF ALL RACES, CULTURES AND RELIGIONS. IT IS NOT JUST INDIGENOUS THEY ARE EXPLOITING, THEY ENJOY EXPLOITING WHITE AUSTRALIANS EVEN MORE SO, BECAUSE THAT IS EVEN MORE SATISFYING.
      IT IS FEARED THAT THE WILL TRY TO STOP “NEWSTART”, AND TURN ALL CENTRELINK PAYMENTS INTO ONE “PAYMENT” LIKE ONE WELFARE PAYMENT. WHAT IS THE DANGER HERE YOU ASK – THERE IS VERY, EXTREME GRAVE DANGER WITH HOW MUCH POWER THEY CAN GET OVER “POOR PEOPLE ON WELFARE”, AS OPPOSED TO PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST UNEMPLOYED.
      WE HAVE SEEN WHAT THEY HAVE MANAGED TO DO TO WHAT WAS ONCE A REASONABLE IN A WAY CENTRELINK SYSTEM, WHEREBY IF PEOPLE COULD NOT FIND WORK THEY COULD GET SUPPORT, FREE EDUCATION, HALF DECENT TRAINING, FUNDS FOR WORK CLOTHES ETC, AND MOSTLY BE LEFT ALONE, AND JUST REPORT THEIR JOB SEARCHING ON A FORM FORTNIGHTLY. PEOPLE WERE NOT TAKEN OUT OF MAIN STREAM SOCIETY OR AWAY FROM DECENT EMPLOYERS, THEY COULD GO TO PRIVATE JOB AGENCIES THAT WANT TO GET PEOPLE EMPLOYED BECAUSE THAT IS THEIR CAREER, SO THEY WERE NOT AS JUDGEMENTAL OR DISCRIMINATORY BECAUSE THEY WOULD JUST WANT TO GET PEOPLE IN, GET THEM FITTED WITH A JOB AND MOVE ON. THEY DID NOT INVOLVE THEMSELVES OR CARE LESS ABOUT PEOPLE ANY THING MUCH BUT FITTING THEM TO A JOB AND DID NOT WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THEIR PERSONAL LIVES, AND THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD BE. THEY DID NOT HAVE ANY RIGHT OR EXCUSE TO POSSIBLY ACCESS TO PEOPLE BACKGROUNDS, MEDICAL HISTORY, HOME ADDRESS, BANK ACCOUNTS, FAMILY HISTORY ETC. THIS WAS WORK RELATED ONLY AND IF THEY CAN NOT FIND A JOB THAT FITS THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOU, AND THIS IS REALLY HOW IT SHOULD BE REGARDING WORK MATTERS.
      THIS WAS REASONABLE ENOUGH, NOT THE BEST BUT REASONABLE, HOWEVER NOW JOBACTIVE HAVE ACCESS IF THEY CAN TO EVERY PERSONAL DETAIL OF PEOPLES LIVES. THEY HAVE OFFICES IN THE BEST PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY AND IN SMALL COMMUNITIES THEY CAN WATCH THE COMMUNITY AND KEEP TRACK OF PEOPLE. THEY NETWORK WITH OTHER JOBACTIVE PROVIDERS AND NO DOUBT GOSSIP ABOUT PEOPLE SO EVEN IF YOU TRANSFER YOU NEED TO CONSIDER THAT THEY CONTACT EACH OTHER AND GET THE OTHER PROVIDER AND POSSIBLY GET THEM ONSIDE AGAINST PEOPLE IF THIS STARTS TO HAPPEN AS IT IS IN REGIONAL COUNTRY AUSTRALIA.
      THE JOBACTIVE COMMUNISTIC AUTOCRATIC DICTATORSHIP MAFIOSO GET ACCESS TO PEOPLE PERSONAL LIFES, WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED THIS. ALSO THEY ARE GETTING MORE AND MORE INFLUENCE AND IN WITH CENTRELINK, WHO THEY ARE CORRUPTING WITH THEIR POWER CRAZY COMMUNIST MILITARY STYLE AUTOCRATIC DICTATORSHIP MARFIOSO BUNCH OF LAZY FAKE CORPORATE DEADBEATS IN THEIR CHEAP AND NASTY FAKE COPORATE STYLE NYLON SUITS FOR THEIR LOCAL DISCOUNT STORES.
      AS HAS BEEN SEEN WITH UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE, WE HAVE BEEN SEGREGATED FROM MAIN STREAM SOCIETY, AND KIDNAPPED FORCEABLY BY JOBACTIVE AND ITS PROVIDERS, FORCED INTO DROPKICK, DUMP PROGRAMS, WORKSHOPS AND TRAINING BY THOSE WHO COULD NOT GET ANY OTHER JOB OTHER THAN IN THEIR CORRUPT NETWORK. GIVEN SUBSTANDED RUBBISH PAST OFF AS WORKSHOPS, TRAINING, EDUCATION AND “SUPPORT” IT IS RUBBISH. ALSO THE UMEMPLOYED WHO MAY OR ONLY CAN GET PART-TIME, OR CASUAL WORK BUT THAY MAY BE WHAT THEY ARE SUITED TO, AND UNABLE TO GET FULL-TIME SALARIES FOR SUCH WORK, AND OCCASIONALLY NEEDED NEWSTART BENEFITS, SUCH PEOPLE ARE BEING FORCED OUT OF PART-TIME WORK WHICH IS WHAT THEY ARE GOOD AT OR SUITED TO INTO SUPPOSED FULL-TIME WORK WHEN THIS FULL-TIME WORK DOES NOT EXIST EITHER WHERE THEY LIVE OR IN THE AREAS THEY ARE SUITED TO QUALIFIED FOR.
      AS SUCH THEY ARE THEN FORCE OUT OF THIS INTO NON-EXISTANT FULL-TIME UNEMPLOYMENT.
      BUT AT LEAST BEING UNEMPLOYED DOES NOT IMPLY COMPLETE POWERLESSNESS OR HOPELESSNESS, AND CANNOT TOTALLY BE PREYED ON BY THESE PARASITES, GETTING POWER AND MONEY FROM TAKING CONTROL OF THE UNEMPLOYED AND NEWSTART

      WE HAVE SEEN HOW THE UNEMPLOYED HAVE BEEN TAKEN OVER, LOST THEIR RIGHTS, BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM MAIN STREAM SOCIETY THROUGH BAD PUBLICITY AND DENIGRATION OF THE MISFORTUNE OF BEING UNEMPLOYED, AND THEN WHEN POWERLESS, USED BASICALLY AS SLAVES TO KEEP JOBACTIVE AND THEIR PROVIDERS IN POWER AND WEALTH AND LABELLED BY THEIR PROGRAMS, ACTIVITIES AND OTHER RUBBISH AS LONG TERM DEADBEATS SIMPLY BY DOING THEIR STUPID ACTIVITIES – ASSOCIATION WITH THEIR ACTIVITIES AND THEM JUST LABELS PEOPLE AS DEADBEATS AND UNEMPLOYABLE. THEN PEOPLE ARE FORCED TO LOOK AT JOBS GOT BY JOBACTIVE – TO SUIT DEADBEATS, THE DOLE BLUDGERS- THEY HAVE MADE OUT OF DECENT PEOPLE SUFFERING THE MISFORTUNE OF BEING UNEMPLOYED FOR VARIOUS REASON THAT ARE NONE OF THEIR BLEEPING BUSINESS.
      THE HORROR OF HORROR HOWEVER WOULD BE AND COULD BE THAT COMMUNIST MILATARY AUTOCRATIC, DICTATORSHIP MAFIOSO, THIS BRUTAL, ABUSIVE, NETWORK OF HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSERS WILL THEN, OF COURSE, TAKE ON THE ROLL OF “SUPPORTING PEOPLE ON ONE WELFARE PAYMENT”. NO LONGER WILL WE BE PEOPLE JUST OUT OF WORK, BUT WE WILL BE PEOPLE IN NEED OF “COUNCILLING, GOVERNING, GOVERNING, CONTROLLING OUR FINANCES, HELPING US BY GOING BEHIND OUR BACK AND CONTACT OUR FAMILIES, GETTING THEM ON WELFARE, HELPING US BY MAKING US DO MORE “COMMUNITY WORK”, TO MAKE US FEEL BETTER ABOUT OURSELVES, AND THE HORROR OF HORROR OF HORROR, HAVING TO GO TO SOME OTHER “GOVERNMENT FUNDED ORGANISATION CORRUPTED BY LOOKING GOOD ON WEBSITES” TO GET HELP WITH “OUR DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY” BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A RIGHTFUL WAY TO FEEL UNDER THE CONTROL OF THUGS AND THEIR WOMEN ADMIRERS, THIS IS APPARENTLY NOT BECAUSE OF THEM OR THE SITUATION, THIS IS BECAUSE “WE HAVE A PROBLEM” WE HAVE A ‘MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM” IT IS NOT THAT THEY ARE THE PROBLEM, THE CAUSE OF THIS, BUT THAT “WE HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM”. THEREFORE THEN COMES THE NETWORK OF THE BOTTOM OF THE PIT MENTAL HEALTH WORKERS, WHO THEMSELVES ARE DERANGED BEYOND BELIEF AND ONLY EVER FEEL GOOD IF THEY CAN TRY TO BRING OTHERS DOWN OR HOPE THERE ARE WORSE PEOPLE THAN THEMSELVES, AND IF THEY CAN FIND A NICE MIDDLE CLASS WHITE AUSTRALIAN THEY CAN TRY TO LABEL AS WORSE THAN THEMSELVES, WELL THIS MAKES THEM FEEL REALLY GOOD.
      THEN AFTER THAT IF WE SAY WELL I AM DEPRESSED BECAUSE OF BLOODY JOBACTIVE IT IS RUBBISH ETC, THEN THE MENTAL HEALTH NETWORK OF DEADBEAT DERANGED MORONS MIGHT JUST HAVE TO HAVE A WORK TO YOUR ‘SUPPORT PERSON” BECAUSE OF YOUR ATTITUDE, AND YOUR “SUPPORT PERSON” MIGHT JUST HAVE TO DESIGNATE THAT PERSON AS “YOUR COUNCILLOR” BECAUSE AT LEAST THEY KNOW THEY WILL TELL YOU IF THAT PERSON TELLS ANYONE THE TRUTH, ARE SMART ENOUGH TO SEE THROUGH THE LIGHT OF WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON THROUGH THE FOG OF LIES, FALSE FRONT AND RUBBISH, SO THEN IT IS ALL ABOUT THE “POOR” PERSON ON WELFARE, WHO HAS ALL THE PROBLEMS, SO THEN YOU ARE NOT JUST ENTRAPED IN A WORK SENSE, KIDNAPPED OUT OF SOCIETY INTO THE WORLD OF JOBACTIVE AND ITS CORRUPTION AND RUBBISH, BUT FURTHER HARRASSED ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, SO IT WILL NOT JUST BE THAT EVEN THOUGH THEY COULD NOT FILE A DOCUMENT WITHOUT HAVING TO ASK WHERE IT GOES, BUT SUSPEND PEOPLE IF THEY CAN’T USE COMPUTER PROGRAMS AND SYSTEMS THAT EVEN COMPUTER WHIZKIDS WOULD THINK DERANGED, SUCH AS MYGOV, BUT THEN IT IS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH YOU PERSONALLY.
      THEY WILL GET ADVICE OF THE INTERNET TO SOUND PROFESSIONAL AS SUPPORT PEOPLE OF WELFARE RECIPIENTS, AND THROUGH COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR “CASE MANAGER” WHO MIGHT EVEN TURN UP AT YOUR HOUSE OUT OF THE BLUE TO “CHECK ON YOUR WELFARE” JUST TO FIND SOMETHING ON YOU THAT IS SOMETHING THEY CAN USE TO THEN THINK THAT YOU NEED TO BE COMMITTED TO THE LOCAL MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY, WHERE THEY ARE DESPARATE TO BE THE POWERFUL IMPORTANT SUPPORTERS OF THE PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ONLY POWERFUL, MAKING LOADS OF MONEY BUT NOW THE BECKONS OF THE WELFARE SYSTEM,HUMAN RIGHTS, SELF RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WORTHY OF THE ADULATION OF THE COMMUNITY ETC ETC.
      THE HORROR OF THIS IS TO GRUESOME FROM HERE IN TO STATE, BUT LETS JUST SAY, OR ASK, WHERE DO THE DROPKICKS, DEADBEATS, AND LOOSERS OF THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM END UP BEING GOT RID OF TO BECAUSE ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS HAND OUR MEDICATION. WHERE TO THOSE WITH A PANCHENT FOR GETTING OFF ON POWER OVER OTHERS END UP, THOSE SICK WITH THE NEED FOR POWER OVER OTHER HUMANS, WHERE DO THOSE FROM THE MEDICAL PROFESSION WHETHER NURSES OR DOCTORS OR ANYTHING ELSE END UP LONG TERM. YES – THE GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES. YES THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE THERE BUT THEY LAST ABOUT A YEAR AND EITHER GET PUSHED OUT FOR CARING OR GET CORRUPTED.

      SO THEN COMES THE MEDICATION – WHICH IS WHAT THEY DO MEDICATED PEOPLE, THIS MAKES YOU UNEMPLOYABLE, UNHEALTHY, FAT, UNABLE TO FUNCTION. THEY STILL EVEN DO ELECTRIC SHOCK THERAPY AND THIS IS LIKE SIGNING A NEWSTART MUTUAL OBLIGATION CONTRACT APPARENTLY, NO OF COURSE IT IS VOLUNTARY BUT IF YOU DON’T YOU WILL BE ON THE STREET IN ABOUT A WEEK BECAUSE WE WILL FIND A WAY TO CUT OFF YOUR PAYMENTS IF YOU DO NOT SIGN. YES YOU CANNOT GIVE A RACING HORSE AN ELECTRIC SHOCK “THERAPY” BUT YOU CAN MANIPULATE A HUMAN BEING INTO HAVE ELECTRIC SHOCK “THERAPY”. WHY, IT DOES NOT WORK AND SHOULD OR WAS OUTLAWED BUT THEY STILL DO IT REGULARLY. WHY – THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION – IF IT IS ILLEGAL TO GIVE A RACING HORSE ELECTRIC SHOCKS TO “IMPROVE IT” WHY IS IT LEGAL AND MOSTLY HIDDEN THAT THEY STILL REGULARY FORCE MENTAL HEALTH PATIENTS – WITH DEPRESSION INTO THIS….YET WE ARE TOLD THAT MENTAL HEALTH SHOULD BE OUT IN THE OPEN ETC BUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM AND TELL YOU JOB ACTIVE “SUPPORT PERSON” WHO THEN OF COURSE “HELPING YOU” JUST BETTER TELL YOUR “CASE WORKER” OR PERSON OR WHATEVER THEY CALL THEM AT YOU GOVERNMENT FUNDED “LOCAL COMMUNIT CENTRE” RUN BY PEOPLE WHO HAD NEVER HEARD OF YOUR COMMUNITY UNTIL A DAY BEFORE A MATE OF THEIRS AT THEIR PUB IN GLEBE OR SOME PLACE FROM HELL” TOLD THEM ABOUT A CUSHY JOB IN A NICE REGIONAL OR EVEN CITY AREA AND GOT THEM THE JOB TO BUILD THE “WELFARE” NETWORK OF “UNCARING” ANTICOMMUNITY MILITARY AUTOCRATIC DICTATORS AND “HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSER” MARIOSO STYLE JOBACTIVE PEOPLE AND THEIR COLLEAGUES IN THE ANTIWELFARE SECTOR, NOW THE WELFARE SECTOR IN YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY, NOW THE WHAT THE HELL IS A COMMUNITY AND WHO CARES HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I MAKE AND WILL I HAVE CONTROL – NEW ANTIWELFARE SECTOR – CALLED AND PRESENTED ON THE WEBSITE AND THE LOVEY DOVEY, CARING, NURTURING COMMUNITY CENTRE – FUNDED BY A GOVERNMENT WHO THINKS YOU COMMUNITY OR REGION IS IN NEW YORK OR ENGLAND AND HAS NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IT BUT WANTS IT RUN AS IT IF IS LIKE THE OLD STYLE BRONXS OF NEW YORK, EVEN THOUGH IT IS A NICE QUITE REGIONAL AREA FREE OF CRIME OR TROUBLE, BUT STILL GROWING DUE TO LACK OF FUNDING FROM THEM TO LOCAL ORGANISATION, WELL IT WAS LIKE THAT BEFORE JOBACTIVE AND ITS PROVIDERS AND WHAT WOULD BE WELFARE PEOPLE, IT WAS LIKE THAT BEFORE THEY TURNED UP BUT AFTER ABOUT A YEAR WOULD START TO BE MORE LIKE THE BRONXS OR THE HELL HOLES THAT THE JOBACTIVE AND ASSOCIATES CAME FROM.

      YES SO … CALLING ALL GOVERNEMENT PAYMENTS WELFARE PAYMENTS, WOULD GIVE THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, COMPLETE POWER AND THEY WOULD BETRAY THE COUNTRY AND GIVE COMPLETE POWER TO CENTRELINK, WHO WERE ONCE REASONABLE BUT INSTEAD OF PUTTING JOBACTIVE PEOPLE ON THE DOLE, WHERE THEY BELONG, AND GIVING JOBS TO DECENT PEOPLE JUST OUT OF WORK THROUGH MISFORTUNE OR WHATEVER, THEY BETRAYED THE COUNTRY AND GAVE JOBACTIVE POWER OVER THE POOR, JOBACTIVE BETRAYED THE POOR AND UNEMPLOYED BY EMPLOYING THEIR CORRUPT MATES OR WHATEVER AND GIVING THEM ALL MOST COMPLETE POWER OF THE CAREERS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE UNEMPLOYED. TO SAY IT IS ALL A WELFARE PAYMENT THEN JOB SEARCH PROVIDERS WILL BETRAY THEIR “CLIENTS” AND GIVEN COMPLETE CONTROL AND POWER OF PEOPLES THOUGHTS, EMOTIONS, PERSONAL LIVES, AND EVEN FAMILIES TO… THE “COMMUNITY CENTRE” RUN BY JOB SEARCH PEOPLE OR THEIR MATES… WHO LIKE A LION SEES A DEER, THINK YOU COMMUNITY IS EASY PICKIN’S.
      THAT IS THE TRUTH! SO LETTING NEWSTART AND ALL GOVERNMENT PAYMENTS BECOME ONE “WELFARE” PAYMENT WILL MEAN NOT ONLY WILL WE GET “SUPPORT” IN OUR CAREERS BY UNEMPLOYABLE POWER CRAZY THUGS AND DEADBEATS, WE WILL BE PUSH FURTHER INTO THE FOG OF DECEIT AND LIES, TO THE SECTOR OF THE CARING MARTYERS WHO WILL “CASE MANAGE” OUR PERSONAL LIVES APPARENLTY… FOR OUR OWN GOOD… IN OUR BEST INTERESTS, OF COURSE, AS THE FOG THICKENS AND MAIN STREAM SOCIETY CANNOT SEE WHAT IS BEHIND IT AND ARE FED MORE LIES ABOUT THE NEWSTART PEOPLE, WHO BECAME THE WELFARE PEOPLE WHO FURTHER DISAPPEARED FROM MAIN STREAM FREE SOCIETY, AND THEN FURTHER DISAPPEARED TO BECOME THE PEOPLE ON WELFARE WITH DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY, AND THOSE THAT DID NOT OBEY, DISSAPPEAR INTO A MEDICATED HELL OR … WELL THEY WERE A BIT ANGRY…. MAYBE A PRISON PSYCHATIC WARD BECAUSE YOU MISSED ONE MEDICATION TABLET, AND THAT IS CRIME LIKE NOT FILLING IN MYGOV, WHERE YOU GET SUSPENDED JUST FOR NOT FILLING IN A DAMN FORM, SO FOR THE CRIME OF MISSING ONE MEDICATION TIME YOU MIGHT ALTERNATIVELY NEED TO BE SHOWN ABIT MORE CONTROL, AND GIVEN, THREATED WITH ELECTRIC SHOCK “THERAPY”, YOU WON’T DO THAT AGAIN, JUST LIKE YOU WON’T MISS WORK FOR THE DOLE OR YOU WILL END UP ON THE STREETS, EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP THAT INTERVIEW OR PAY TO GET THEIR AND NOT EAT, WE WILL MAKE SURE YOU DO WORK FOR THE DOLE, BECAUSE WE NEED TO TELL THE GOVERNMENT HOW MANY PEOPLE WE GOT INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE.
      AND ON AND ON …. BAD FROM BEGINNING. IT HAS TO END… OR IT WILL BE BAD TO THE END…. OUR END!

  55. Have found some CASUAL work recently, but it is only casual and employer made it very clear to new starters that no guarantee of hours will happen and to have no expectations of ongoing work. Had to let my jobactive provider know about this casual job as I had work for the dole scheduled on the same day I started this casual job, so I obviously couldn’t attend work for the dole. Stupid jobactive provider is carrying on as if all my unemployment problems are permanently solved, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Anyway, I ended up being suspended for not attending work for the dole even after I had told these knuckleheads I could not attend work for the dole as I was commencing a casual job on the same day as work for the dole was scheduled. Typical punitive, shoot first ask questions later, guilty until proven innocent piss poor attitude of these jobactive bully consultants. Idiots the lot of them. Do the right thing and you still end up in trouble.

  56. Both Labor and LNP bang the dole bludger drum for the purposes of political gain as they know there are a lot of employees out there who fucking hate their jobs and take their hatred out of the unemployed. Its a case of ” I have a cunt of a job and I am fucking miserable, so why should you “dole bludger” not also have a cunt of a job and be suffering miserably like me.”

    Both Labor and LNP, especially that rich (20 million in assets) bible licking nutter Scott Morrison see absolutely nothing wrong with a system that forces people.to accept any fucking miserable job for fuck all money to get them off the dole. These cunts will have you out working in the field picking onions just food money is they could get away with it even if you had several university degrees.

    Hence the need for Job Service Providers to use whipping sticks like fucking calling you up, calling you into interviews and getting you to sign contracts and work for the dole which is so fucked up because when you are working for the dole you are NOT looking for a job during that time. Job Service Providers are not giving you a list of jobs to apply for because in reality they are not job service providers – they are THE CENTRELINK HARASSMENT TEAM.

    Everytime the LNP is in power it goes after the “dole bludger” regards of the fact that it costs less than $15,000 pa to pay an unemployed person while it costs $100,000 pa plus to have people thrown into jail after their unemployment benefit is cut off and they resort to crime to survive. Now this shit political party either knows this or is incapable of basic mathematics.

    This country is in a fucking huge mess right now because both Labor and the LNP allowed the banks to lend to speculative investors which drove the price of buying a home (a basic human necessity as we no longer live in caves) to idiotic high levels. Seen any bankers jailed after the Royal Commission into banking? No? Me too! and you are unlikely to.

    Yes so see, its okay for the banking industry to fuck the puppy for big bucks but very naughty for the “dole bludger” to accept the meager amount of Newstart TO FUCKING SURVIVE while looking for a job.

    Both these parties need permanent removal NOW !

  57. Job active agency threatening me with “compliance issues” if I take a day off in a new job, and various other naughty things. I have some casual work at present which is only casual. This afternoon, the IT system was down(due to a fault) which in turn meant all computer systems were down, which meant nobody could work. All casuals including myself told to go home without pay and come back the next day when the systems would be supposedly fixed. We were also told we may have to take a full day off if computer systems are actually down all day. Does this now mean I am not compliant for a day? You can’t force employers to give you work especially if you are casual. These jobactive lunatics seem to misunderstand the true meaning of casual work. Your hours are never guaranteed, so this so called “compliance” is a load of utter bullshit!

    1. SHUT DOWN JOB SEARCH AGENCIES
      GET THESE BASTARDS OUT OF OUR COMMUNITIES
      GET THESE MONGRELS OUR OF OUR SUBURBS
      GET THESE JOB SEARCH BASTARDS AWAY FROM OUR KIDS
      SHUT DOWN JOB SEARCH AGENCIES
      GET THESE BASTARDS OUT OF OUR COMMUNITIES
      GET THESE MONGRELS OUR OF OUR SUBURBS
      GET THESE JOB SEARCH BASTARDS AWAY FROM OUR KIDS
      GET THESE LOW LIFE MONGRELS AWAY FROM OUR KIDS
      STOP THESE PEOPLE FROM TAKING ADVANTAGE OF WOMEN IN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES
      STOP THESE PEOPLE EXPLOITING DISABLED PEOPLE IN OUR SUBURBS

  58. Dear People,

    PLEASE ASK FOR A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES WHO ARE ALLOWING JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH TO USE ABUSIVE PRACTICES AND EXPLOITATIVE PRACTISES TO DESTROY THE LIVES AND MAKE MONEY OUT OF PEOPLE IN NEED.

    It is time to call for a ROYAL COMMISSION INTO ABUSIVE PRACTICES BY JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH, known about, supported and condoned by the Department of Human Resources. Email you local MP, Newspaper or organisation – do it anonymously if you are in danger or retaliation from JobActive/Jobsearch or even the Department of Human Resources.

    PICK UP YOUR PHONES NOW IF YOU CAN EVEN AFFORD A PHONE CALL.

    WHO CAN EVEN AFFORD A PHONE CALL WITH THESE JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH Agencies taking everything that should go to people in need.
    PICK UP YOUR PHONES, CALL KELLY O’DWYER AND DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO ABUSIVE PRACTICES AND EXPLOITATION OF ANYONE ON GOVERNMENT BENEFITS. DO IT NOW! PLEASE DO IT NOW!

    ASK THEM THE FOLLOWING OR SEND AN EMAIL ASKING:

    What right does a so called employment agency have to run my life
    What right does a so called employment agency have to take away my only form of support
    What right does a so called employment agency have to be contracted by the Government if they are supposedly a private organisation
    What do so called employment agencies actually get out of taking away my chances of getting employment by making me do work for the dole and their having to tell an employer that if I can’t avoid it. Do they get a commission, do they get some reward.
    Why are people forced to do activities, work for the dole – obviously that makes them unemployable.
    What do employment agencies get out of forcing people to do work for the dole, activities or attend appointments
    Why is the Government impressed by the fact that these so called job agencies/JobActive are ruining the lives and careers of people in need.
    WHY ARE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES ALLOW ANY CONTROL WHATSOEVER OVER THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED AND WHAT ARE THEY GETTING OUT OF IT.
    WHY ARE CRIMINAL ORGANISATIONS ALLOWED TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF THE POOR

    ASK FOR A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO EXPLOITATION AND ABUSIVE PRACTISES USED ON PEOPLE IN NEED FOR THE GREED OF CRIMINAL ORGANISATIONS AS STATED ABOVE.

    THIS HAS TO STOP. The abuse and use of vulnerable people, people in need, unemployed people by thugs, and criminals no matter they call themselves, wear or where THEY CAN AFFORD to live has to stop.

    Email you local MP, anonymously might be best, ask for a Royal Commission into the abuse of the rights, human rights abuse, sexual discrimination against women, exploitation and profiteering of people on basically welfare, email them today.

    This has to stop

  59. Also shut down and ask for a royal commission into Community Health Centres – Beware of local Community Health Centres, they are the “health” care version of JobSearch Agencies.

    You can go to them and be put into a psychitric ward if they so decide. Or if someone in you vicinity wants to get at you they can get these evil idiots on side and commit you to a psy ward, where you will be medicated and your life taken away from you.

    COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES ARE NOT COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES. THEY ARE NOT SET UP BY THE COMMUNITY, THEY DO NOT CARE LESS, THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN HEALTH, THE ARE NOT CENTRES BUT EGOCENTRIC DEADBEATS WHO LIKE JOBSEARCH HAVE GOTTEN OR CAN MAKE A LIVING OUT OF THE CONTROL OF VULNERABLE PEOPLE.

    If a community got together to help people, it would be done by the community, it would be not for profit, it would be our of concern. It may not be good as they might label people or whatever, but THESE ARE NOT COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, These centres get funding from the Government, and by having them there the Government probably even with good intentions thinks they are helping communities. But they are not a part of the community, do not care about communities, are not community minded, do not employ people from the community. What are they then. They are the “health’ verson of Job Search agencies, just loosers of the medical system that would not get employed anywhere but have a mate or contact in the health system or who the health system want to get rid of maybe, whatever they are very very evil people, who may come across as cool or hipster, but they are not they are just the worst of the health department who enjoy the power of not having to do anything but making alot of money, and getting sort of “aren’t I righteous” and “hipster, cool”, down to earth saving the world person, an evil person and looser who the health department probably wanted to get rid of or something or who no decent person would like to be around, who can all of a sudden get a job in a “community health centre” and then claim to be a cool and righteous outsider saving the world. THEY ARE GIVEN POWERS THAT NO ONE SHOULD REALLY HAVE, LIKE JOBSEARCH WANK… CAN AND HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE POWER TO DESTROY PEOPLES LIVES AND TAKE AWAY THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME SO TO SPEAK, THESE EVIL WANK… HAVE THE POWER TO KIDNAP PEOPLE AND LOCK THEM AWAY IN PSYCHITRIC FACILITIES FOR ANYTHING…. AND THEY DO. If they do not like you, they can and will, anything for power, like JobSearch/JobActive it is about power and money. These places are doubly evil though because they actually enjoy having power and money over very vulnerable people or people in need. They get off on that, and they do not care if they make it worse for people who are vulnerable or in need, they seem to enjoy that. THEY JUST DO NOT CARE WHAT THEY DO TO PEOPLE AS LONG AS THEY GET POWER AND MONEY. Other people can do that in various ways, but people who do this to people in need or vulnerable are the lowest of the low.

    SO PLEASE BEWARE OF THESE SO CALLED COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, LIKE JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH CREATE UNEMPLOYMENT AND KEEP PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED, COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES DESTROY COMMUNITY, DESTROY MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, THEY ARE NOT CENTRES FOR HELP BUT EGOCENTRIC PSYCHOPATHS MOSTLY.

    PLEASE BEWARE AND KEEP THEM OUT OF YOUR COMMUNITY AND LET THE GOVERNMENTS KNOW THAT THESE PLACES ARE A DISASTER AND RUIN COMMUNITIES AND MENTAL HEALTH, THEY BASICALLY DESTROY PEOPLE FOR THEIR OWN PLEASURE, POWER AND MONEY…. AND WHERE WE LIVE THE ABOVE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.

  60. ALL WHO MAY READ THIS WEBSITE

    We are sick of answering to JobActive/JobSearch. Who are they anyway. Who are JobActive/JobSearch.

    From what we know there is the Department of Human Services, and with regards to payments/welfare, Centrelink now process and oversee payments. Centrelink have been around since the year dot, therefore while not great where OK, experienced enough to understand but always “strong” or brutal maybe at times to not let people rip off the tax payers money, deposited into the Department of Human Services accounts FOR US, FOR PEOPLE GOING THROUGH HARD TIMES. MONEY FROM THE TAX PAYER, IN AUSTRALIA, TO SUPPORT PEOPLE GOING THROUGH DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES OR TO SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO FIND IT HARD TO FIND WORK FOR ANY REASON, ESPECIALLY AS THERE IS ONLY WORK IN MAJOR CITIES.

    SO… THERE IS THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, WHO GET PAID BY THE TAX PAYER, WHO HAVE CENTRELINK WHO PROCESS TAX PAYER MONEY TO GIVE {and this should be unconditionally mostly, Centrelink have enough checks, how can anyone get past the Centrelink check and balances.

    So… money deposited to the Department of Human Services goes to Centrelink to be given to people in need, or whatever and to people who cannot find work for whatever reason. The Centrelink checks are fairly ruthless, and no one in their right mind would want to stay on Centrelink payments, even work two days a week would be better than that, and if people do then, well let them stay there, as they would be better off out of the work force if they are a bit odd and want that. At the most you get $340 a week and cannot have but a few thousand in the bank, 10 years ago that might have seemed alot but 240 would just pay for basic accommodation, a can of soup a day, and a 30 watt light.

    So there is the Department of Human Services then Centrelink who do the checks and balances, pretty ruthlessly with regards to giving out the tax payers money meant for people in need, and in this situation unemployed. How any one could cheat Centrelink is beyond imagination and any crook with that sort of warped mind would no doubt be doing something else not spending their time on an extra hundred but making thousands robbing banks or something. So while some people may rip off Centrelink, how in hell could more than a few be doing this.

    So people on Centrelink, namely the unemployed are all or have been made out to be ALL CROOKS RIPPING OF THE TAX PAYERS AND LAZY BLUDGERS ALL HOLIDAYING IN BALI OR SOMETHING. I mean you have got to be kidding, how could this be possibly.

    Possibly there has been some rort or something but this is not unemployed people in general. I mean seems to me, to us it would be impossible almost to rip off Centrelink.

    So where are all the million or even billions they claim they have recovered from people ripping off the Centrelink system. It does not seem possible.
    All the millions and billion going to unemployed that is apparently being wrongly taken or something by the unemployed. It does not make sense.

    OK, so there is the Department of Human Services, Centrelink and in this example unemployed people, who just get what is allocated to them, as they always have.

    So are the Government saying that the unemployed are ripping of Centrelink and the tax payer OR are the Government saying that they are having to pay out more and more to fund “the unemployed” therefore we want this to stop and the unemployed must be ripping off the tax payer, more and more.

    Well from experience it is not possible to do anything but get what you “qualify for” from Centrelink. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE, except maybe if you a very warped but brilliant person who spends all week working out some way of making a second claim and putting in two fortnightly reports, with two address, some how on the forms and bank accounts etc etc. I mean it might be possible but really it would be a full time job to do this and the cross check everything with other places so you would also have to be really stupid to think you could get away with it for more than a few months.

    SO WHAT IS GOING ON,

    SO….There is the Department of Human Services, who run Centrelink and give them the tax payer money, to give {and I say give because it is to be given, a first world country should look after its people in genuine need} given…. to people in need or who can’t for what ever reason find employment, lack of jobs in regional areas, age discrimination, problems, transport, whatever and these issues should not have a time limit, because older people do not get younger, regional areas are in many cases are loosing jobs not making more jobs, transport is in many places getting more expensive and being cut etc etc.

    So…There is the Department of Human Services, who run Centrelink and give them the tax payer money, to “unconditionally” should give “unconditionally” to people who for what ever reason cannot find alot of work, and this does not alway get easier for them, this should be to deserving people who need it, who need it means you deserve it Centrelink! So people who need support get given money be Centrelink after the checks and balances. These have not really changed in decades, WHY THEN ARE THERE ALL THE MILLIONS AND BILLIONS THAT ARE SUPPOSEDLY BEING TAKEN BY UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE SPECIFICALLY WHEN IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE AND ALSO IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LIVE ON THE CENTRELINK ALLOWANCE, UNLESS YOU WHERE VERY DERANGED IN A CLEVER SOUGHT OF WAY, AND IN THAT CASE PLEASE STAY ON CENTRELINK AND DON’T GET A JOB WHERE I MIGHT END UP.

    SO APPARENTLY THERE ARE MILLIONS OF DERANGED DOLE BLUDGERS HAVING A WILD TIME RIPPING OF CENTRELINK, HOW TO YOU HAVE A GREAT OLD TIME ON $240 AFTER YOU HAVE PAID YOUR RENT, BOARD, MORGAGE, – OH ON THE THOUSANDS YOU HAVE IN THE BANK, THE $5000 you have in the bank. $5000 is one hundred dollars a week, therefore you would need that for even 3 months, considering todays cost of living.

    SO WHAT IS MISSING HERE…. YES THE ARCH ENEMY, THE TRUE EVIL… is it the dole bludger, NO, is it Centrelink, umm not really, is it the Department of Human Resources… umm well not directly…. SO WHERE ARE ALL THE EXTRA MILLIONS AND BILLIONS THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING ON ABOUT GOING….what is missing, what is missing that is not new but has not been around for very long but long enough to take million and billions to of tax payers money possibly.

    JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH …. I mean, we mean, are they private or government, how do they afford their offices in the main and expensive areas of EVERY BLOODY, CITY, TOWN, VILLAGE, IN AUSTRALIA. THERE ARE LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF THESE OFFICES, IN EVERY TOWN, CITY, SUBURB, VILLAGE, IN EVERY PLACE IN THE WHOLE NATION. THEY ALL HAVE NICE OFFICES, COMPANY CARS, THEY PAY PEOPLE FROM CITIES TO GO TO REGIONAL AREAS, WHERE THE SAME PEOPLE ABUSE LOCAL PEOPLE FOR NOT HAVING JOBS.

    THEY ARE EMPLOYMENT CENTRES, JUST LIKE ANY OTHER EMPLOYMENT ORGANISATION. OTHER EMPLOYMENT ORGANISATIONS HAVE TO BE COMPETITIVE YES BUT THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY BY BEING PAID BY AN EMPLOYER TO FIND AN APPLICANT. THIS MAKES SENSE BECAUSE AN APPLICANT MAY NOT HAVE MONEY IF THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A JOB. WE ARE NOT SURE ABOUT THIS BUT PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT PLACES MAKE MONEY .. HOW, IT COULD ONLY REALLY BE BY BEING PAID BY AN EMPLOYER.

    SO ARE EMPLOYERS PAYING JOB SEARCH AGENCIES TO FIND THE BEST APPLICANTS… A PERSON ON WORK FOR THE DOLE OVER A RECENTLY EMPLOYED AND QUALIFIED IMPRESSIVE PERSON FROM A MAJOR CITY. UMMM… DOUBTFUL, NICE THOUGHT BUT BUSINESS IS BUSINESS.

    SO WE AND THE AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHO THE HELL ARE JOBACTIVE AND JOBSEARCH, WHY THE HELL THESE DICK…. HAVE THE RIGHT TO TAKE CONTROL OF TAX MONEY MEANT FOR JOB SEEKERS. I MEAN WHO THE HELL HAS THE RIGHT TO CONTROL ANYONES WELFARE FUNDS….. EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES. MAYBE YOUR LOCAL BAKERY MIGHT DECIDE NOT TO SELL YOU BREAD BECAUSE YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED, MAYBE THE LOCAL SUPERMARKET MIGHT DECIDE TO CHARGE YOU MORE FOR YOUR MILK BECAUSE YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED, I MEAN WHERE DOES IT STOP, AND WHO THE HELL ARE JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH THAT THEY ARE GIVEN THE POWER TO TAKE AWAY PEOPLE ONLY SOURCE OF WELFARE MONEY…. FOR WHAT…. MISSING AN APPOINTMENT… PUTTING IN 19 JOB SEARCHES INSTEAD OF 20.

    I MEAN TAKING AWAY A PERSON ONLY FUNDS, WELFARE BASICALLY BECAUSE THEY COULD ONLY FIND 19 JOBS IN A REGION WHERE THEIR ARE NO JOBS ANYWAY, INSTEAD OF 20. I MEAN THERE ARE NOT EVEN 20 JOBS ADVERTISED IN THE LOCAL PAPER HERE.

    BUT FOR THAT AN EMPLOYMENT AGENCY IS GIVEN THE RIGHT TO RUIN SOMEONES LIFE, REALLY.

    SO BACK TO THE MISSING BILLIONS….. UM HELLO MR NUMBERS MAN – HOW MUCH IS IT COSTING THE TAX PAYER TO PAY JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH TO DESTROY THE LIVES OF THE UNEMPLOYED. WHO PAYS FOR THE SWANKY OFFICES, WHO PAYS FOR THE COMPANY CARS, WHO PAYS FOR THE ACCOMMODATION THE CROOKS USE WHEN THEY INVADE RURAL AREAS, WHO PAYS THE WAGES.

    JUST ONE OF THESE CROOKED ORGANISATION ANYWHERE WITH SAY ONE TO TWO PART TIME EMPLOYEES, MUST COST AT LEAST “ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND A YEAR” TO SET UP AND RUN, SO WHERE DO THEY GET THAT MONEY, BECAUSE THEIR ARE NO EMPLOYERS IN RURAL AREAS THAT WOULD OR COULD PAY TO GET EMPLOYEES, AND SORRY FELLOW UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE, BUT THERE ARE NO EMPLOYERS PAYING THOUSANDS TO GET UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE DOING WORK FOR THE DOLE IN THEIR ORGANISATIONS…. SORRY, IT HURTS BUT…. SO THERE ARE ALL THESE ORGANISATIONS WHERE MILLIONS AND BILLIONS MUST BE NEEDED TO KEEP THEM IN THEIR SITUATIONS OF FULL-EMPLOYMENT, SO THEY CAN MAKE MONEY OUT OF PEOPLE IN LESS EMPLOYMENT OR NO EMPLOYMENT.

    SO THERE ARE MILLIONS AND BILLIONS GOING SOMEWHERE, BLAMED ON THE UNEMPLOYED WHO COULD NOT DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT THEY QUALIFY FOR THERE ARE MILLIONS OF VERY DERANGED UNEMPLOYED WHO WOULD BE BETTER OFF STAYING UNEMPLOYED THEREFORE. SO ALL THE BILLIONS AND MILLIONS BEING SPENT ON THE UNEMPLOYED DOES NOT SEEM TO BE GETTING TO THE UNEMPLOYED, BEING SPENT BY THE UNEMPLOYED … OR IT IS JUST NEEDED BY THE UNEMPLOYED.

    Therefore if it is needed by the unemployed the problem therefore is lack of jobs…. is this the fault of the unemployed… NO
    So here is the equation.
    unemployed =equals and adds up to unemployed and really cannot add up to much else. However Jobsearch/JobActive also adds up, equals, does nothing about unemployment if it is lack of jobs. So we can cancel out the unemployed, stop blaming them, stop adding them into the equation.

    Therefore we are left with JobActiv/Jobsearch, and the Government and the Departments, so we can sort of cancel out the Departments as they just do what they have always done and agree with whoever as long as they can just do what they have always doen, and that is sort of OK, they should stand up for the unemployed abit more, add something to the equation but they don’t really but anyway if it ain’t too broken don’t try to fix it as it might break.

    So the remainder of the equation is actually those accusing others, the Government and JobActive and Job Search agencies. Therefore – WHAT IF WE TAKE THE JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH SIDE OF THE EQUATION OUT OF THE GOVERNMENTS SIDE OF TEH EQUATION, CANCEL JOB ACTIVE/JOBSEACH, GET THE GOVERNMENT TO CANCEL OUT JOBACTIVE/JOBSEACH, AND TAKE THE REMAINDER, OF JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH, POSSIBLY THE MILLIONS AND BILLIONS IT COSTS TO RUN THESE EVIL, DESTRUCTIVE USELESS PLACES.

    THEN WE GIVE THE REMAINDER OF JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH, WHAT REMAINS WHEN WE TAKE THEM OUT OF THE EQUATION, WE GIVE THE MILLIONS AND BILLIONS THAT REMAINS TO THE GOVERNMENT TO CREATE JOBS, AND GIVE TO THE ACTUAL UNEMPLOYED IN WAYS THAT WILL HELP THEM SURVIVE, TO THE NEEDY ON OTHER PAYMENTS, TO THE PENSION TO MAKE SURE THE NEXT GENERATIONS ALSO GET THE PENSION. WHAT IS THEN MISSING FROM THE EQUATION…. ABSOLUTELY F…… NOTHING.

    SO JOBSEARCH/JOBACTIVE…. WE HAVE DONE THE MATHS, IT IS TIME THEY STARTED ANSWERING TO THE UNEMPLOYED, THE TAX PAYER, THE PUBLIC AND HONESTLY TO THE GOVERNMENT. THEY KNOW THERE ARE NO JOBS, THEY KNOW THEY ARE ABUSING PEOPLE AND MAKING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYABLE BUT AS LONG AS THEY CAN TELL THE GOVERNMENT THEY GOT PEOPLE INTO SOME TIME CONSUMING EXPENSIVE ACTIVITY OR WORK FOR THE DOLE THEY SCORE WITH THE GOVERNEMENT. THEY GET COMMISSIONS FOR THAT AND CUDIOUS FOR TORTURING THE POOR PEOPLE WHO THEY MAKE OUT TO BE BAD PEOPLE, BECAUSE THEY ARE POOR AND BECAUSE THEY CAN.

    SO PLEASE UNION …. MAKE THEM ANSWER TO US, TO THE PUBLIC, WHO ARE THEY, HOW DO THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY, IF THEY ARE PRIVATE HOW CAN THEY MAKE MONEY AND HOW ARE THEY ALLOWED TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF POOR PEOPLE, WHY SHOULD THEY BE GROWING RICH WHILE THEY PEOPLE THEY ARE USING ARE GETTING POORER AND WEAKER AND MORE UNEMPLOYABLE. IT IS TIME THEY ANSWERED TO US AND THE PUBLIC, IT IS TIME THEY WERE SACKED, IT IS TIME WE RECOVERED OUR RIGHTS AND SACKED THEM, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, THEY DO NOTHING, THEY QUOTE RULES AND REGULATIONS AND ABUSE PEOPLE OVER ANY LITTLE RULE OR WHATEVER, YET THEY IGNORE AND USE THE RULES FOR THEMSELVES, OR JUST MAKE UP THEIR OWN, THEY DO NOTHING MUCH BUT ACCUSE US OF BEING LAZY BLUDGERS, THEY ARE INCOMPETENT AND DO NOTHING BUT MAKE MISTAKES YET ATTACK US IF WE SO MUCH AS DON’T CROSS A T OR DOT AN I.

    PLEASE UNION MAKE THEM ANSWERABLE TO THE UNEMPLOYED, THE UNION AND PUBLIC.

    1. PLEASE UNION , IT IS TIME THAT JOBACTIVE, JOBSEARCH BECAME ANSWERABLE TO THE UNEMPLOYED, THE PUBLIC, THE TAX PAYER AND EVEN HONESTLY TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR WHAT THEY ARE REALLY DOING TO THE UNEMPLOYED, USING AND ABUSING THE UNEMPLOYED OR PARTLY EMPLOYED EVEN.

      JOBSEARCH/JOBACTIVE NEED TO STOP MAKING US ANSWERABLE TO THEM – AND THE NEED TO ANSWER TO US.

      WHO PAYS THEM AND WHAT FOR

      WHY ARE THEY GOING TO RURAL AREAS TO FORCE PEOPLE INTO FULL-TIME JOBS WHEN THEY KNOW THERE ARE NO JOBS IN RURAL AREAS.

      WHY ARE PEOPLE BEING FORCED INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE AND ACTIVITIES WHEN OBVIOUSLY THIS TAKES THEM AWAY FROM APPLYING FOR JOBS. A DECENT APPLICATION TAKES AT LEAST A DAY, HOW CAN YOU DO WORK FOR THE DOLE, ATTEND APPOINTMENTS AND LOOK/APPLY FOR UPTO 20 JOBS A MONTH, ESPECIALLY WHEN IN AREAS OUTSIDE A MAIN CBD THERE ARE NOT EVEN 20 JOBS ADVERTISED.

      ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSE TO THEN BE ABLE TO MOVE AND AFFORD PLACES IN THE MAIN CITIES, AFTER MOVING FROM AREAS OUTSIDE THE MAIN CITY WITH NO JOBS. HOW ARE THEY SUPPOSE TO DO THAT THESE DAYS WITH PRICES FOR ACCOMMODATION SO EXPENSIVE NOW IN MAJOR CITIES WHERE THEIR MIGHT BE FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT. MAYBE.

      HOW ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSE TO GO FROM WORK FOR THE DOLE TO FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT IN A MAJOR CITY EVEN IF ALL THE OTHER APPLICANTS THERE ARE WORKING, HAVE IMPRESSIVE JOBS AND QUALIFICATIONS.

      WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO EMPLOY A PERSON WHO HAS DONE WORK FOR THE DOLE AND HAS THAT ON THEIR RESUME, IN ANY JOB LET ALONE A FULL-TIME JOB.

      WE DEMAND ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS.

      WE DEMAND THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS.

      WHO ARE THEY ANYWAY. WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO TAKE CONTROL OF OUR LIVES AND MAKE UP THEIR OWN RULES – WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED ACCESS TO OUR PRIVATE INFORMATION, THEY ARE JUST EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES AREN’T THEY? WHO ARE THEY, WHERE DO THEY COME FROM. ARE THEY THE WORST OF THE PRIVATE AGENCIES WHO CAN’T GET WORK, BUT CAN GET CONTRACTS WITH OR THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES.

      IF SO WHY ARE THEY BASICALLY ABDUCTING US INTO THIS SYSTEM, WHY CAN WE NOT JUST BE LEFT ALONE TO GO TO SUCCESSFUL EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES. WHY ARE WE FORCED TO GO TO THE WORST JOB AGENCIES THAT CAN ONLY SURVIVE BY GETTING CONTRACT THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES WHO WOULD NOT NO THE FIRST THING ABOUT EMPLOYING PEOPLE IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR OR WHATEVER.

      JOB ACTIVE JOB SEARCH IT SEEMS ARE JUST THE WORST OF THE PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES, IS THIS RIGHT, PEOPLE WHO THEMSELVES CANNOT FIND EMPLOYMENT, AND HAVE TO GO TO THE GOVERNMENT TO GET AN INCOME, BUT THEY HAVE TO SURVIVE BY RIPPING OFF NOT ONLY THE GOVERNMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES BY TELLING THEM THEY ARE DOING A GOOD JOB, BUT ALSO DOING THIS BY ATTACKING AND CONTROLLING VULNERABLE PEOPLE AND BASCIALLY IMPRISONING THEM AND KEEPING THEM DOWN AND SILENT SO THEY CAN MAKE MONEY, TO THEMSELVES BE EMPLOYED.

      IS THAT RIGHT… AND WHAT DO THEY GET PAID FOR, WHO PAYS THEM. IT MUST BE THE GOVERNMENT, THEREFORE THEY ARE NOT A PRIVATE SECTOR, THEY ARE NOT PRIVATE ORGANISATIONS. WHAT DO THEY GET PAID FOR, THEY APPARENTLY GET COMMISSION OR SOMETHING FOR HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY BRUTALLY FORCE INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR FULL-TIME RELIANCE ON THEM. THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN DO THIS OR JUSTIFY THIS IS TO MAKE OUT PEOPLE ON THEIR BOOKS, ARE BAD, LAZY, STUPID, OR CRIMINALS AND THEY WILL DO OR SAY ANYTHING TO JUSTIFY KEEPING PEOPLE DOWN AND MAKING THEM LOOK LIKE THIS OR EVEN INTO THIS. IS THAT A JOB

      WE WANT ANSWER AND WE WANT THEM NOW, NOT WHEN THE ELECTION HAPPENS OR WHEN EVER, WE WANT THESE PLACES TO ANSWER TO US, THE UNEMPLOYED, AND TO THE PUBLIC, WHOSE MONEY WE SUSPECT THEY ARE LIVING VERY WELL OFF BY LIVING VERY WELL OFF THE UNEMPLOYED.

      1. WHO ARE JOB/ACTIVE WHO ARE JOB/SEARCH AGENCIES
        WHO PAYS THEM
        HOW DO THEY AFFORD TO SET UP OFFICES IN EVERY CITY, TOWN, VILLAGE, SUBURB IN AUSTRALIA NEARLY
        WHY IS MORE MONEY IT SEEMS BEING SPENT IN LITERALLY KIDNAPPING AND ATTACKING, BELITTLING AND DEMEANING UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE THAN IS SPENT ON JOB CREATION.
        WHY IS THIS MONEY THAT SEEMS TO BE BEING TAKEN FROM THAT DESIGNATED TO UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE BEING USED TO LITERALLY ENSLAVE THEM TO THE WORSE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES IN THE COUNTRY, WHO IT SEEM CAN NOT SURVIVE, ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL THEMSELVES IN THEIR OWN SECTOR.
        THEY ARE NOT EVEN PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYMENT PEOPLE WHO ARE MOSTLY USELESS ANYWAY NOT THIS POWER CRAZY. JUST USUALLY WANT PEOPLE WITH THE RIGHT SKILLS FOR JOBS THAT EMPLOYERS CONTACT THEM FOR.

        WHY ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST UNEMPLOYED OR NOT FULLY EMPLOYED, TREATED LIKE A DISEASE AND FORCED OUT OF MAIN STREAM EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES BY JOBSEARCH/JOBACTIVE. WHAT RIGHT HAVE THEY GOT TO FORCE US TO ONLY APPLY FOR JOBS WITH THEM.

        RIGHT RIGHT HAVE JOB SEARCH AND JOB ACTIVE GOT TO CLAIM THEY ASSIST THE UNEMPLOYED WHEN NOT ONLY ARE THEY NOW TAKING UP PEOPLE TIME WITH STUPID USELESS ACTIVITIES, LABELLING PEOPLE AS DOLE BLUDGERS BY FORCING THEM TO DO WORK FOR THE DOLE, AND NOW FORCING PEOPLE TO ONLY IT SEEMS APPLY FOR JOBS ON JOBSEARCH WEBSITES.

        NOW THEY JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE SAYING WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO APPLY BASICALLY , FOR JOBS OUTSIDE JOBSEARCH, WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO APPLY FOR JOBS IN THE PAPER OR ON THE INTERNET OR WORD OR MOUTH, ONLY THOSE JOBS ON THE JOB SEARCH WEBSITE. WHAT IN HEAVENS NAME IS GOING ON… DO THEY GET PAID FOR PEOPLE GETTING THESE JOBS, SO WE NOW ONLY HAVE AN EVEN NARROWER CHOICE OF JOBS OR SOMETHING.

        THIS IS GETTING TO BE THE WORST ABUSE THIS COUNTRY HAS SEEN, IT IS HORRIFIC, AND WE DEMAND THEY ANSWER TO THE UNEMPLOYED AND THAT THEY ARE EXPOSED TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING, AND TO THE PUBLIC HONESTLY, FOR HOW THEY ARE KIDNAPPING AND TORTURING AND EXPLOITING PEOPLE NOT IN FULL TIME WORK, WHICH IS WHAT THE TRUTH IS.

        WE DEMAND ANSWERS AND THAT THEY ARE SHUT DOWN NOW, COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN.

        ALL THEY ARE APPARENTLY ARE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES WHO APPLY FOR A TENDER FROM THE GOVERNMENT, THERE IS A CALL CENTRE BUT IT IS JUST THAT, A CALL CENTRE. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO ANSWER TO ANY ONE APPARENTLY, THEY ARE JUST EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES WHO GET A TENDER FROM THE GOVERNMENT. THEREFORE THEY ARE NOT PRIVATE AGENCIES THEY ARE TAX PAYER FUNDED, NO DOUBT WITH MONEY MEANT FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. THEY MUST BE COSTING BILLIONS AND FOR WHAT, TO DESTROY THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED AND NOT FULLY EMPLOYED.

        WE DEMAND ANSWERS

        1. SHUT DOWN JOB SEARCH THEY A COSTING BILLIONS AND FOR WHAT, TO DESTROY THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED AND NOT FULLY EMPLOYED. WHO PAYS THEM, NOT THE EMPLOYERS, THE GOVERNMENT MUST PAY THEM. THE UNEMPLOYED ARE NOT THE ONES COSTING BILLIONS IT IS THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES, THEY ARE INVADING EVERYWHERE, EVEN IN PLACES WHERE THEIR ARE NOT JOBS, WHO PAYS FOR THEM TO GO TO PLACES WHERE THEIR ARE NOT JOBS TO FORCE PEOPLE TO GET JOBS THAT DO NOT EXIST. FORCING PEOPLE TO LEAVE THEIR COMMUNITIES, FAMILIES, CHILDREN, ACCOMMODATION OUT ONTO THE STREETS IN THE HOPE OF TRYING TO FIND JOBS IN THE CITIES – WHO IN THE CITY IS GOING TO EMPLOY AN UNEMPLOYED PERSON ANYWAY WHEN THEY HAVE THE CHOICE OF FULLY EMPLOYED, SHINY, YOUNG, QUALIFIED APPLICANTS. LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE AND LET THEM DO WHAT WORK THEY CAN, BETTER THAN ENDING UP DESTITUTE IN A CITY.

          SHUT DOWN JOB SEARCH

          1. SHUT DOWN JOB SEARCH NOW

            THEY MUST BE COSTING BILLIONS AND FOR WHAT, TO DESTROY THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED AND NOT FULLY EMPLOYED.

  61. Compliance procedures destroying peoples lives - just made so Job Active can make more money out of work for the dole and activities, older people, if is just for dickheads to make money they do not deserve says:

    COMPLIANCE PROCEDURES MAY BE BEING INCREASED – ARE THEY TRYING TO INCREASE COMPLIANCE PROCEDURES.

    This is only done to make sure people are under the control of JobActive and their slave traders, job search agencies. They are taking away our rights and freedoms, we have rights but they are using compliance procedures to over ride these making out we the unemployed are the problem, not the lack of jobs or uselessness of Job Active and their slave traders, job search agencies. They are not needed, if you can’t open a newspaper, fill in a resume template and send that off or make a phone call, or register at a normal employment agency not connected to the Government funded slave traders job search, then maybe people are ready for a job. That is all that can be done and the slave traders don’t even do that themselves, they just get their jobs from their friends or something, most have not even finished a TAFE course or ever work in a real job, so how would they know. Umemployed people mostly have more job experience and skills and even education that the slave traders, so what is the use of them, they just do not know the employment sector, get these jobs the wrong way or when too young.

  62. AUWU, please do something about compliance procedures, they are causing serious problems and more unemployment, they just take people away from looking for work and even from casual, part-time work, and how the fucking hell can you get a job if you do not have at least some work? You have to have something on your CV thing, or to put in an application, you cannot say you are doing bloody work for the dole, they will just chuck your application in the rubbish, or these activities or what ever the hell they are. They should be supporting any sort of work, even one hour a week, that is a way to get into a place, or “path-way” – but they are making people give up even part-time work, to do work for the dole and activities, making people look like idiots that need these bastards to control their every thought and movement, even in their home lives. This is just really shit, it is total nonsense, we are being used and abused so power hungry bastards can get rich, by making us poor and to look like total dropkicks. They are the dropkicks, just projecting their own mentality onto people living where their are no jobs or who have had financial problems.

  63. JOBACTIVE and Job Search are ripping off the poor, and unemployed and people with problems IT IS A TOTAL RIP OFF, AND SO THEN THIS MEANS THEY ARE RIPPING OFF THE TAX PAYER BIG TIME... BIG TIME. says:

    JOBACTIVE and Job Search are ripping off the poor, and unemployed and people with problems IT IS A TOTAL RIP OFF, AND SO THEN THIS MEANS THEY ARE RIPPING OFF THE TAX PAYER BIG TIME… BIG TIME.

  64. PRIVACY IS BECOMING A ISSUE WITH CENTRELINK – THEY HAVE TO BE REMINDED THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LET THESE JOBACTIVE – JOB SEARCH MONGRELS SEE YOUR CENTRELINK FILE FOR ANY REASON. WHY SHOULD THESE DEADBEAT EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES HAVE ACCESS TO ANYONES PRIVATE INFORMATION EVER FOR ANY REASON.

    Community Health Centres are not what they appear, on the standard websites, that look like they are really nice, and caring. They are worse than the JobActive Job Search if that is possible. SERIOUSLY NEVER GO NEAR THEM, stick with places like the Salvation Army or the Anglican or even Catholic Church maybe or private counselors, as long as they never suggest community health Centres.

    You can get vouchers from Centrelink to private Councillors and things, but then the problem might be that if Job Search find out they may exploit that, but Centrelink are NOT SUPPOSE TO TELL JOB ACTIVE ANYTHING.

    THAT IS ANOTHER PROBLEM, IF CENTRELINK LET THESE EVIL PLACES SEE PEOPLES CENTRELINK FILE THEY WILL EXPLOIT ANY PROBLEMS, VULNERABILITIES ETC. CENTRELINK DO NOT SEEM TO DO THIS AS YET, BUT WITH THE INFLUENCE of Job Active Job Search they might start. SO PRIVACY IS VERY IMPORTANT, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT CENTRELINK BE CONSTANTLY REMINDED NOT TO LET JOB ACTIVE AND JOB SEARCH SEE YOUR CENTRELINK INFORMATION OR SHARE IT WITH ANYONE FOR ANY REASON REALLY.

    Also Do not encourage Community Health Centres, do not EVER encourage people with any welfare issue to go to so called “Community Health Centres, whatever you do. They sound nice and have nice websites, look all caring and sharing and kind and dudes helping others, giving up successful careers, rebelling from the big bad world making money to…… help the underdog, and that is absolute rubbish, it is just like JobActive. great, important corporate people getting people into jobs, when they are destroying people and causing and knowingly and purposefully keepoing people unemployed or forcing them into disgusting jobs they can’t do or whatever, destroying people and their careers for their own gain, while Community Health Centres are the same. These places have set up in places everywhere without anyone noticing really, or the local people thinking they are nice caring places, harmless and lovely. They are the evil that they say they are fighting. Just an easy way for evil people to make money, and take over people lives completely, work and personal AND THEY TURN YOUR FAMILY AGAINST YOU OR CONVINCE YOUR FAMILY I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE SOME SORT OF LUNY, they can and do get total control other people they are ACTUALLY probably envious of, FOR WHAT EVER REASON AND NO MATTER WHAT THEIR PROBLEMS ARE.

    It is probably better to stick with the old fashioned churches even. I saw that the Salvation Army and other religious places “failed’ or did not do well in their enforcing of compliance issues as Job Providers, they lost money from not enforcing all this compliance abuse. So that is a good thing, if they do not abuse people and use them as you would an animal, then they are better than the Job Agencies that do well. So organisations that do not make money out of the unemployed are no doubt better than those that do.

    So if people do need any sort of welfare help, counselling, mental health DO NOT GO TO OR LET THEM SEND YOU TO THESE ‘COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS”. Where I live they have committed people to the local psychiatric ward for the most inane things, as if they just want an excuse to be able to “commit’ people, the power trip and then to be able to go to the hospital like a really meaningful and important person and discuss this person. Some of the things they have had people, called the police and had them committed to the mental health ward are: for being upset about loosing a job and telling them that or something. A young guy trying to get away from mates or pubs that sell drugs, and telling them this and being honest and saying he did not want to take medication because it is a drug, or something, so they were trying to make him take medication and then called the police to put him in a mental health ward to force him to take medication, even though there was nothing wrong with him. Several women talking to THEM about abuse have force-ably been committed by men because they just claim oh you are deluded or something, in support of men abusing women sort of thing, blaming the women as it oh the women are emotional and have problems, they do not blame the man or the abuse, they blame the women as overly emotional or having a problem, not the cause of the problem, the abuse by a man, husband, father, attacks etc. Even very intelligent, creative or seriously good spiritual people have been made out to be crazy because these stupid, evil people cannot understand, creativity, intelligence, innovation and good spiritual ideas and people. So they have them committed to a psychiatric ward, saying they are delusional or whatever when in fact they are decent, normal but just more creative, intelligent or seeking something more spiritual than many people. Or because they are sensitive people or something.

    Also people who are depressed and have problems, I meet one person where I was working sort of connected to the mental health, community services sector, who said they will fore-ably put people into the psychiatric ward if they say anything about suicide, or will call the police or something at these places. They do not care, you would think they would want to help with the issue as to why, WHY, people are depressed or anxious, but these people in these places have no idea, do not have any empathy, it is just an excuse to get another person under their control and drum up a bit of business for the Departments and a way for them to try to get in with important people. In mental health facilities people have just about all their rights taken away which if they are dangerous to others maybe but these are the hospital not prison mental health facilities. They are suppose to be for people with depression etc who are not police cases, but they see suicide as “harm to oneself” so apparently this is crime now, and apparently it always has been.

    Community Health Centres are not what they appear, on the standard websites, that look like they are really nice, and caring. They are worse than the JobActive Job Search if that is possible. SERIOUSLY NEVER GO NEAR THEM, stick with places like the Salvation Army or the Anglican or even Catholic Church maybe or private counselors, as long as they never suggest community health Centres.

    You can get vouchers from Centrelink to private Councillors and things, but then the problem might be that if Job Search find out they may exploit that, but Centrelink are NOT SUPPOSE TO TELL JOB ACTIVE ANYTHING.

    THAT IS ANOTHER PROBLEM, IF CENTRELINK LET THESE EVIL PLACES SEE PEOPLES CENTRELINK FILE THEY WILL EXPLOIT ANY PROBLEMS, VULNERABILITIES ETC. CENTRELINK DO NOT SEEM TO DO THIS AS YET, BUT WITH THE INFLUENCE of Job Active Job Search they might start. SO PRIVACY IS VERY IMPORTANT, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT CENTRELINK BE CONSTANTLY REMINDED NOT TO LET JOB ACTIVE AND JOB SEARCH SEE YOUR CENTRELINK INFORMATION OR SHARE IT WITH ANYONE FOR ANY REASON REALLY.

    1. CENTRELINK GAVE JOB SEARCH – DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS ACCESS TO MY CENTRELINK FILE AND DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION OR TELL ME. I JUST RECENTLY AFTER SIX MONTHS FOUND THE SMALL PRINT TELLING ME THIS AFTER THEY HAD DONE IT. THIS ANSWERS A FEW QUESTIONS BUT IS VERY WORRYING. THIS IS REALLY TERRIFYING – DON’T THEY HAVE TO ASK ME FIRST OR INFORM ME. WHY CAN THESE ORGANISATIONS GET ACCESS TO MY CENTRELINK FILE FOR NO REASON OR GOOD REASON AS IF THEY SHOULD EVER HAVE REASON, VULCHERS SHOULD NEVER HAVE REASON TO DO THAT. WHY DO THEY GET ACCESS TO MY CENTRELINK INFORMATION BUT I DO NOT NO WHAT IS ON THERE, DO NOT HAVE ACCESS AND THEN CANNOT DEFEND ANYTHING PUT ON THERE BY JOB ACTIVE OR WHOEVER. PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT CENTRELINK DOING THIS WITH DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS, WHAT A LOT OF ROT ALL THESE DEPARTMENTS – JUST LET US GET ON WITH LOOKING FOR WORK THEY ARE HOPELESS THEMSELVES SO THE BEST THING THEY CAN DO IS TO LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE.

      I have been transferred twice, once I asked to be after making complaint and getting attacked for that, the other time more recently, about six months ago, I just got transferred, they did not even ask me.

      The thing is I get the exact same attitude from each Provider. I could not understand this, I did not really do anything wrong and did not deserve to be talked to like I am really dumb, 4 years old, or a criminal. However they were all just the same and the last one let it slip, when she said something like, really not what it looks like on your Centrelink…. then she stopped.

      What does this mean, that these suspicious creeps in these places are given or get or can get access to my Centrelink database file. I have check my Job Searching computer thing, but there is nothing on there that is too bad.

      This means these creepy people can get access to information on me that EVEN I CANNOT ACCESS OR DO NOT KNOW ABOUT. I contacted Centrelink and asked them what was on my database thing, there was something about a suspention but I mean that is not a crime, I did get an exemption from Job Search once as I nearly had a nervous breakdown when i was told I had to walk to appointment or get there anyway I could and the only way I could was to walk about 20 kms, or they would suspend me, I had a couple of other personal issues with my ex, so I got an exemption for a little while, things like that, but these agencies or whatever they call themselves just treat me like a convicted mass murderer or something. I suspect that one of the Agencies said something to them to get me transfer, so they can put anything on your file to make you look the one who is unwell or make up or exaggerate abit of anxiety, justifiable anxiety. I mean an ex scaring me, and then being told I had to walk 20 kms a day maybe even three times a week to stay on payments. Who would not be anxious, but it was just a bad time for me and my daughter, better off with out him.

      So what I am staying is these weird groups Job Search, can get or are given access to you file and it can be made out to be ” in your best interests” or they needed to… I mean everyone has problems at some time. They can get access to my file but I do not have access to it, and when I ask if there was anything on it they just say, oh no just a demerit don’t worr about it, I mean they are nice, but the if the job search agency make a crime out of that or having a bit of stress rightly so, I do have to worry about it.

      We unemployed, partly employed, people need to have access to our Centrelink file on the Centrelink system. This is really important and they should not be able to tell this strange, creepy people at these places our business or give them access, and they do it after they give them access, they tell you they have done this afterwards.

      I want to know what is on my Centrelink file that gets understood as me being a the weirdo, when it is job search.

  65. DEPARTMENTS JOBACTIVE COMPLIANCE PROCEDURES ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A FRONT TO USE AND ABUSE UNEMPLOYED SO JOB SEARCH CAN MAKE MONEY

    Why the hell if you get a job should these places get money for that, WHICH IS WHY THEY FORCE PEOPLE TO USE THE JOBACTIVE WEBSITE PROBABLY SO THEY CAN CLAIM THEY FOUND YOU A JOB, AND THEN GET MONEY FOR THAT AND GET ON GOING MONEY WHILE YOU ARE EMPLOYED, AND IF IT DOES NOT WORK OUT THEN THEY CAN BLAME THE UNEMPLOYED AND THEN FORCE THEM INTO WORK FOR DOLE OR OTHER THINGS AND GET BONUSES OR SOMETHING FROM THAT. SO WHAT IS THE USE OF FINDING A JOB IF THEY ARE THEN CONTROLLING YOU THROUGH THAT EMPLOYER. PEOPLE ARE NOW BEING FORCED TO ONLY LOOK FOR AN FIND JOBS ON THE JOBACTIVE WEBSITE, SO JOB SEARCH ACTIVE GET MONEY FROM THAT. THIS IS BECOMING A COMPLIANCE, IT IS MAKING THE JOB CHOICE VERY NARROW AND IT MEANS THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR CAREER. YOU DO NOT EVEN GET AWAY FROM THEM WHEN YOU HAVE A JOB, EVEN A FULL TIME JOB, AND THEY GET PAY FOR NOTHING, FOR YOU WORKING OR SOMETHING. IT IS JUST EVIL

    Then if it does not work out they abuse you for that because they will be loosing money – THIS IS SLAVE TRADING, THEY ARE ACTUALLY SLAVE TRADERS, just about, are as close to being slave traders as cana be. THEN THEY SAY PEOPLE HAVE TO EARN A CERTAIN AMOUNT PART-TIME/CASUAL/ OR DO CERTAIN HOURS OR ELSE THEY ARE BEING EXPLOITED. THEY TELL PART-TIME PEOPLE THEY HAVE TO EARN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OR DO A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF HOURS, “OR ELSE THE BIG BAD WORLD IS EXPLOITING THEM” ARE YOU JOKING.

    AND THEY FORCE PEOPLE OUT OF THIS PART-TIME CASUAL WORK INTO THEIR THINGS BECAUSE THEY GET MONEY FOR THAT, OR INTO FULL TIME WORK BECAUSE THEY GET MONEY FROM OTHER PEOPLE WORKING. BUT THEY DO NOT GET MONEY FROM PEOPLE DOING SOME WORK, WHICH IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET FULL-TIME WORK ANYWAY, HONESTLY. SO THEY FORCE PEOPLE OUT OF CASUAL/PART-TIME OR OTHER NOT FULL-TIME WORK INTO THEIR WORK FOR THE DOLE ETC, BECAUSE THEY GET MONEY – EVEN IF IT DESTROYS PEOPLES CAREERS, AND THEY DESPARATELY NEED THE SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY OR TO USE THAT TO GET A REAL FULL TIME JOB….. THEY DO NOT CARE, THEY DO NOT CARE ON BIT. ALL THEY DO IS FORCE THROUGH COMPLIANCE PROCEDURES PEOPLE TO DO WHAT MAKES THEM MONEY. IF PEOPLE DO NOT MAKE MONEY FOR THEM THAT WAY, THEY GET RID OF THEM BY MAKING THEM LOOK AT FAULT WITH CENTRELINK, DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES, DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES IS EVEN SAYING THE SAME THING AS SLAVE TRADERS, DEPARTMENT OF SLAVE TRADERS. SO THEY GET BONUSES OR SOMETHING FROM THEIR SLAVES BY MAKING THEM DO WORK FOR DOLE OR OTHER PROGRAMMES WITH THEM, OR PAID BY FORCING OR TRYING TO FORCE THEM INTO A NARROW CHOICE OF JOBS WHERE THEY ARE NOT REALLY WANTED OR EXPERIENCED OR WHATEVER AND THIS MIGHT NOT LAST SO AGAIN THE UNEMPLOYED ARE BLAMED THEN AND IT LOOKS BAD WITH CENTRELINK ADN THE DEPARTMENT, ALWAYS THE FAULT OF THE UNEMPLOYED AND THEY ARE POWERLESS TO SPEAK UP DUE TO RETALIATION.

    ALL IT IS ABOUT IS FORCING UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE INTO ANYTHING SO JOB ACTIVE JOB SEARCH SO THEY GET MONEY, BONUSES ETC, NO MATTER WHAT IT DOES TO THE UNEMPLOYED PERSON, AND ALSO THAT IS ALL THIS COMPLIANCE BUSINESS IS ABOUT, IT IS NOT THAT UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE ARE DOING THE WRONG THING, ARE REALLY BAD, IT IS JUST MADE TO LOOK THAT WAY OR LOOKS THAT WAY, BUT IT IS THAT THEY WANT TO FORCE UNEMPLOYED TO COMPLY WITH WHAT IS BAD FOR THEM, MAKES THEM UNEMPLOYABLE OR WHATEVER, SO THEY, JOB SEARCH, ACTIVE CAN MAKE MONEY.

    ALL THAT IS BAD ABOUT UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE TO THE DEPARTMENT AND ITS PARASITES IS WHAT DOES NOT MAKE THEM MONEY AND DOES NOT GIVE THEM POWER – THEREFORE IN THIS EQUATION UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE ARE THE BEST, GREATEST, THE SMARTEST, AND BETTER THAN THE DEPARTMENT AND ITS TENTACLES BECAUSE THEY DO NOT AGREE WITH SLAVE TRADING, OR TRY TO FORCE OTHER PEOPLE TO BE NOTHING MORE THAN ANIMALS WORKED TO DEATH TO MAKE MONEY FOR FLESH EATING PARASITES. UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE DO NOT MAKE A LIVING OUT OF SLAVE TRADING, THEREFORE IN THIS EQUATION UNEMPLOYED ARE A PLUS AND ANYONE SUPPORTING JOB SEARCH, JOB ACTIVE ARE A MINUS

  66. JOBACTIVE/SEARCH ARE A NEGATIVE INFLUENCE ON CENTRELINK

    Centrelink was not that bad decades ago. As an older person I have gone on workers support payments but it was not this bad, I mean Centrelink can be bloody rough, but they did understand that as people we all have problems, money, work problems, it was not such a big deal. They are from what I see getting taking over by this Job Search lot, and that is just really terrifying. Yes they have to be stopped, I mean just go back to the way it was before all this interference and the money it must cost. Keep it simple – have to get rid of this lot, really this is just really bad and the horror stories seem to get worse not better and people time is taken up to make them money, people having to leave town and end up in hopeless circumstances, when they were alright at least in their home towns. DON’T LET THE BASTARDS WIN, DON’T LET THE BASTARDS TAKE OVER AND BRING DOWN CENTRELINK – EVERYONE ALWAYS WANTS TO CHANGE EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME THESE DAYS, BUT ALOT OF THINGS WERE CREATED OUT OF HARD TIMES AND HARD SHIP SO THEY UNDERSTAND, SO YOU KNOW ALL THESE YOUNG PEOPLE AND NEW PEOPLE THINK THEY KNOW BETTER BUT EVEN CENTRELINK WOULD HAVE TAKEN DECADES TO GET THAT RUNNING AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND COMPLAINTS EVEN THAT WOULD HAVE STOPPED THEM BEING LIKE THIS LOT. THEY WERE ALRIGHT, AND THE SAME ORGANISATION ACTUALLY BEFORE THAT.

    THERE WAS NEVER THIS kind of social attitude, I mean people were not taken out of the rest of the world just because of hard times, acutally even by the rich and big organisation you were given a go and sort you know tough times mate, we will give you go, because alot of those rich or big time people they had to go through tough times to get where they are, so this tall poppy thing is not good either always bringing big time people and organisation down.

  67. Set up by Sarina Russo staff member in Katoomba

    I have been set up by Sarina Russo so they can do anything to basically kidnap me, to force me into something so they make money even though it means I will now end up homeless.

    I am still in shock over what they all conspired to do. They went to an old provider and stopped me from going back there, then they made sure I could not do something, set it up, so they could suspend me, to stop me transferring to another provider. So they went to an old provider to stop me going back there, then set me up so I could not transfer some where else, so they could stop my payments and tell the JobActive Office that I had to go back to them before I can transfer. Now I cannot transfer until I go back to them and sign something and then they are planning to make sure I stay with them for that because they make money from that. They know this means I will go broke, and into homelessness because I cannot afford to travel and do all this and give up some casual work which I will be unavailable for now. Then they will probably get me to go to Centrelink to get on the housing commission list or something, they probably say that is what you have to do, even though they know this takes 10 years or whatever.

    They conspired to do all this knowing I am now soon going to end up homeless and still having to go to their things, spend any money I have going to what they have planned that makes them even richer.

    TONY ABBOT SUPPOSE TO BE A CATHOLIC, LOOKING AFTER THE POOR, BUT HE WILL NEVER GET INTO HEAVEN FOR WHAT HE IS DOING TO THE POOR, FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES AND NOW CENTRELINK – AND HE WILL END UP IN HELL FOR A VERY LONG TIME FOR SETTING UP JOB SEARCH OR WHAT EVER THESE PLACES ARE SUPPOSE TO BE, THEY ARE JUST ABDUCTING VULNERABLE PEOPLE TO USE TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF AND HURTING THEM, THEIR FINANCIAL PROBLEMS ARE BEING USED AGAINST THEM SO THEY CAN MAKE MORE MONEY. SARINA RUSSO WILL BE IN HELL WITH TONY ABBOT ONE DAY AS WILL HER ARMY OF ABDUCTORS, AND THE LIES, THEY JUST MAKE UP LIES TO BLAME ME, EVEN SAYING I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE SOMEWHERE WHEN THEY HAD CHANGED THAT, JUST TO SET ME UP TO SUSPEND ME TO TAKE AWAY BASICALLY MY WELFARE PAYMENT, TO THREATEN ME SO I HAVE TO SELL MYSELF FOR FREE TO THEM TO USE LIKE A DOG TO WORK FOR FREE SO THEY CAN BUY A BIGGER CAR AND A BIGGER HOUSE OR MAYBE A YACHT.

    THEY ARE MAKING ME HOMELESS, DESTITUTE SO THEY CAN GET MORE MONEY, AND THEY KNOW THAT AND THEY DO NOT CARE ONE BIT. THEN THEY WILL TAKE AWAY MY FREEDOM TO LOOK FOR WORK AND FORCE ME INTO ANY JOB THEY CAN FIND, EVEN IF IT SERIOUSLY HARMS ME, OR DESTROYS ME TOTALLY, SO THEY GET PAID FOR ME WORKING. WHILE I AM WORKING, BEING DESTROYED THEY WILL NO DOUBT BE LIVING IT UP SOMEWHERE..

  68. NO MORE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES – NEED A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO “COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES URGENTLY

    AS WELL AS A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO DEPARTMENT OF JOBS AND SMALL BUSINESS/JOBACTIVE AND THEIR ARMY OF ABUSIVE NAZI/MILITARY COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP AND THEIR TERRERIFYING JOB SEARCH AGENCIES – WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL THREE OF THESE REALLY – SOME IDEOLOGY BUT BASICALLY IT IS A DERANGED NEED FOR POWER AND CONTROL OF VULNERABLE PEOPLE MOSTLY UNTIL THEY GET TO THE TOP THEN IT IS POWER OVER ANYONE, AND THEY USE VULNERABLE PEOPLE TO GET TO THE TOP THEN TO GET EVEN MORE SATISFACTION FROM CONTROLLING AND DESTROYING LESS VULNERABLE PEOPLE. THEY HAVE NO VALUES, NO EMPATHY, THEY JUST CANNOT CONTROL PEOPLE, AND THAT IS THE PROBLEM, BUT IF THEY DO, IF YOU LET THEM THEY WILL DESTROY YOU OR USE YOU TO DO THIS TO OTHERS AND TAKE THEE BLAME IN THE END, FOR SHORT TERM REWARDS. POWER AND CONTROL FOR THEIR OWN SATISFACTION, NOT JUST MONEY AND POWER, BUT FOR THEIR SATISFACTION, IT IS HOW THEY GET OFF, EXCUSE THE CRUDE TERM BUT THAT IS IT….ALOT OF IT. COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES ARE FULL OF THIS LIKE
    THEY TAKE CONTROL BY USING RULES OR PSYCHIATRIC KNOWLEDGE, TWISTED AND TWISTED TO SUIT THEIR ATTACKS ON VICTIMS AND MADE TO SOUND OH SO IMPORTANT, SO IMPORTANT, SO ACADEMICALLY SUPERIOR, USE THIS ETC AGAINST OTHERS AND NIT PICKING OVER ANYTHING ANYONE DOES, WHILE THEY ARE THEY BREAK ALL THE RULES AND EVEN LAWS. i MEAN IF NO NE CAN UNDERSTAND I THEN IS IT JUSTIFIABLE AS KNOWLEDGE ARE PEOPLE INTELLECUTALLY INFERIOR OR IS IT JUST THEIR WAY OF PUTTING SOMETHING THAT MAKES NO SENSE. ANYTHING DIFFICULT CAN BE UNDERTOOD WITH ALOT OF RESEARCH, OR SHOULD BE ABLE TO IF THE PERSON LOOKING AT IT HAS THE RIGHT VIEW OF IT AND ABIT OF NATURAL TALENT AT IT. IF NOT, IF IT IS JUST MAKING YOU FEEL SICK, IT MIGHT JUST BE TWISTED SO MUCH BY THEM, IT HAS LOST IT PURPOSE AND MEANING, THAT MAY HAVE BEEN OK IF UNDERSTOOD AND USED IN A GOOD WAY. SO THEY CAN USE THE RULES AND LAWS TO SORT OF CONTROL OTHERS, BECAUSE OF AN UNDESERVED JOB TITLE GOTTEN IN THE WRONG WAY NO DOUBT.

    WHY CAN THEY BREAK EVERY RULE AND REGULATION BUT ABUSE OTHERS BY USING RULES AND REGULATIONS TO ABUSE, AND NOT FOLLOW THINGS THEMSELVES AND GET AWAY WITH IT AND CONSTANTLY SHIFTING THE BLAME TO ANYTHING THE VICTIM DOES, ANY LITTLE THING WHILE THEY BREAK MAJOR RULES AND THINGS. THEY JUST USE THE RULES WHILE THEY BREAK TO THE NIT PICK TO CONSTRICT, TO DEVALUE, TO DEMEAN, TO ABUSE, BASICALLY IT IS JUST LOW DOWN COMMON OLD ABUSE. THEY PROJECT WHAT THEY ARE ONTO OTHERS, DUE TO THEIR EGOS, THEY WILL PROJECT ONTO OTHERS WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO YOU, THEY PROJECT WHAT THEY ARE DOING ONTO YOU, SO THAT IS ABIT OF A WARNING SIGNAL BUT HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH IT WHEN SUCH PEOPLE AND THEIR GROUPS PROJECT AND MAKE OUT IT IS YOU WHEN IT IS THEM OR HIM OR HER AND GET GIVEN POWER THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN GIVEN IN THE FIRST PLACE SUCH AS THESE ORGANISATION. WELL THAT IS THE PROBLEM.

    OBVIOUSLY THESE LITTLE GROUPS OR WHATEVER SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN GIVEN POWER OVER VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. NO ONE ELSE HAS TO RIGHT TO TAKE AWAY WELFARE PAYMENTS, OR TELL PEOPLE WHAT JOB, ACTIVITY UNPAID ACTIVITY THAT THEY SHOULD DO FOR ANYTHING LET ALONE FOR MONEY GIVEN BY THE TAX PAYER FOR BASIC NEEDS. ALSO NO OTHER GROUP EXCEPT POLICE NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOCK ON PEOPLES DOORS, TRESPASS TAKE AWAY ALL, ALL YOUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOM AND OVER SOMETHING THAT IS NOT A VIOLENT CRIME, CAN IN NO WAY BE SEEN AS A VIOLENT CRIME AND MISUSE AUTHORITIES TO LOCK PEOPLE AWAY BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE ANNOY OTHERS, OR HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS, OR WAYS OF LIVING, OR ARE JUST AN IRRITANT TO PEOPLE, OR ARE ABIT IGNORANT AND OUT OF CONCERN AND THINK TALKING TO UNKNOWN PEOPLE IN A ORGANISATION NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD OF, AND SHOULD NEVER HEAR OF OR REALLY LOOKED INTO BUT LOOKS WARM, AND COMPASSIONATE, NO ONE ELSE OR ORGANISATION CAN DO THAT. THEY CAN MAKE OUT OTHERS ARE DOING SOMETHING BUT THIS GROUP HAS BEEN GIVEN THE POWER AND THROUGH MISUSING DOCTORS TO GET PEOPLE DRUGED AND DRAGGED AWAY AND LOCKED AWAY, EVEN WITHOUT AT FIRST BEING ABLE TO GET DRESSED. WHY HAVE THIS GROUP BEEN GIVEN THIS POWER, AND THEY FOR SOME REASON THE AUTHORITIES DO NOT QUESTION IT OR THEM AND THE DOCTORS, WELL IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR THEM SO THEY JUST WILL BASE VIEWS ON WHAT THESE FAILED MEDICAL PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OTHERS THEY SEEM TO DESPISE OR ARE JEALOUS OF IN REALITY THEY ARE SORT OF JEALOUS.

    WOULD THINK THEY WERE NICE PEOPLE IF THEY HAD THEM KNOCKING ON THEIR DOOR OUR OF CONCERN, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT NICE PEOPLE, THEY ARE JUST OUT FOR THEMSELVES AT THESE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES.

    ALSO THESE AMATEURS AND DERANGED PEOPLE DO NOT EVEN NO THE RULES, THEY MAKE UP THEIR OWN FOR THEIR OWN MEANS, UNTIL CAUGHT OUT OR PICKED UP ON IT, AND THEN PROBABLY LIE AND TRY TO BLAME THEIR VICTIM/S, THEN CHECK THE RULES AND IF THEY HAVE TO IF THEY CAN’T BLAME AND DESTROY THE VICTIM, PATRONISE THEM, BELITTLE THEM TO OTHER BEHIND THEIR BACKS AND THEY JUST KEEP USING THE RULES AND REGULATIONS AGAINST THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE THEY CLAIM TO HELP AND STATE IT IN A NICE WAY, THEY JUST BOTH THESE GROUPS KEEP MAKING AND USE RULES SAYING THEY ARE HELPING PEOPLE, BUT THEY ARE HELPING THEMSELVES AND DESTROYING PEOPLE WITH THEIR RULES AND REGULATIONS, THEY ARE NOT HELPING PEOPLE THEY ARE PARASITE MAKING MONEY GETTING POWER BY DESTROYING THOSE THEY SO WONDERFULLY, COMPASSIONATELY TRY TO CLAIM THEY ARE HELPING. WHEN IN FACT THEY ARE TAKING ALL THE RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OFF PEOPLE, THINKING FOR THEM, TALKING FOR THEM. TAKING OVER THEIR LIVES FOR “THEIR BEST INTERESTS” WHICH ARE THE BEST INTERESTS OF THEIR POWER AND MONEY AND SELF IMPORTANT, SAYING THEY ARE HELPING PEOPLE.

    THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES IS NOT HELPING ANYONE, IT WOULD BE BETTER THAT THEY WERE SHUT DOWN AND PAYMENTS JUST PROCESED THROUGH CENTRELINK AND PEOPLE ABLE TO FIND WHAT THEY WANT AND NEED THEMSELVES. THERE IS A WHOLE INDUSTRY ACTING LIKE THEY ARE “HELPING” PEOPLE WHEN THEY ARE PARASITES, EVIL, NASTY, VILE PARASITES AND THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT PEOPLE, THEY DO NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE, MOST PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY NEED, THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO BE THERE TO SUPPORT WHAT PEOPLE NEED, BUT ALL THEY DO IS SUPPORT WHAT THEY WANT, POWER, MONEY AND IMPORTANCE AND TO FEEL SUPERIOR TO OTHERS, TO FEEL THEY ARE DESTINED TO CONTROL OTHERS BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS SO STUPID OR WHATEVER, AND THEY KEEP JUSTIFY THIS OVER AND OVER AND THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE THEY ARE PAID BY THE TAX PAYER TO SUPPORT.

    THEY ARE PAID BY THE TAX PAYER TO SUPPORT THE VERY PEOPLE THEY WANT TO DESTROY, AND GET ENJOYMENT OUT OF FEELING SUPERIOR TO AND DOMINATING AND CONTROLLING. IT IS JUST ABUSE. THE ACTUAL WORD FOR IT IS ABUSIVENESS.

    THAT IS THE BASIS, THE EVERY DAY ACTIONS OF ABUSE SHROUDED IN DESIGNER CORPORATE CLOTHS, FANCY COMMUNITY SERVICES TITLES AND THEY ALL NETWORK AND JOIN TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO OF COURSE BECAUSE THEY ARE SUPERIOR THEY BELIEVE OR SOMETHING, BUT IT IS ABUSE. ABUSIVENESS, LOW LIFE ABUSE. THERE IS NOTHING SUPERIOR ABOUT IT, NOTHING INTELLIGENT, NOTHING COMPASSIONATE, NOTHING HELPFUL. IT IS ABUSE OF THOSE THEY ARE PAID BY THE TAX PAYER TO SUPPORT. BUT IT IS JUST ABUSIVENESS. THAT IS ALL IT IS.

  69. SARINA RUSSO PTY LTD – OK QUIZ TIME – NUMBERS PEOPLE – WHO CAN ADD UP – WHO SPEND MORE TAX PAYERS MONEY – THIS GROUP BELOW OR ALL THE UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE PUT TOGETHER,

    ……As at 2018, Sarina Russo Job Access operates across more than 200 sites, employs more than 1000 people and helped elevate Russo to …
    THROW SOME OF THE MOST LAVISH PARTIES AND WITH POLITICANS, ON THE GOLD COAST

    ……As well as the May 2015 trip in which [Liberal Politician} made an impulse purchase of an $795,000 apartment, Dr Parkinson will examine Ms taxpayer-funded trips to the Gold Coast for New Year’s Eve in 2013 and 2014.At a press conference on Monday, {prominant Liberal MP} said she had attended a New Year’s Eve party and a business lunch at the invitation of a “prominent Queensland businesswoman”. Her office later confirmed that the businesswoman was recruitment and training .. you know who.,
    The party was held at the five-star Palazzo Versace hotel, which boasts on its website of having “an ambience of pure glamour” and “an exclusive waterfront setting”…

    YET THE UNEMPLOYED ARE VIOLENTLY ABUSED FOR RECEIVING A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS TO PAY FOR FOOD AND A TIN ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS, AND NOW TAX PAYER MONEY GIVEN FOR PEOPLE IN NEED IS NOT EVEN USED TO CREATE JOBS IN EXISTING ORGANISATIONS OR ONES THAT DO NOT ENSLAVE PEOPLE TO JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH/DEPARTMENT OF SMALL JOBS AND BUSINESS, BUT TO PAY FOR PEOPLE LIKE THEM TO HAVE THE BEST PARTIES ON THE GOLD COAST.

    WE GET A TRAVEL ALLOWANCE OF TWO DOLLARS A DAY OR WEEK TO GET TO WORK FOR THE DOLE, THEY GET THOUSANDS TO PARTY. WHERE IS THE MONEY MEANT TO HELP UNEMPLOYMENT GOING REALLY. WHY IS THEIR NOT A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO WHY UNEMPLOYED ARE BEING ABUSED AND FORCED TO WORK TO FUND EVERYONE ELSE THROUGH BONUSES AND OTHER PAYMENTS GIVEN TO THE LIKES OF SR, GAINED FROM PEOPLE FORCED TO WORK FOR THE DOLE, FORCED TO WORK FOR NOTHING BUT THEY GET PAID FOR OUR UNPAID WORK THROUGH, BONUSES AND PAYMENTS THAT GO TO THESE CALLED JOB PROVIDERS.

    WHY DO WE HAVE TO WORK FOR EVERY CENT OF MONEY THAT IS MEANT TO BE GIVEN AND IS GIVEN BY THE TAX PAYER, WE ARE NOT PAID BY THE JOB AGENCIES, THEY ARE NOT PAYING US NEWSTART OR WHATEVER, THE TAX PAYER IS BUT THE PROVIDERS NOT ONLY DO NOT PAY US BUT FORCE US TO WORK FOR THEM TO GET RICH. THE TAX PAYER MONEY IS FOR THE SUPPORT OF PEOPLE, NOT A WAGE OR A JOB PAYMENT, AND IT IS NOT PAID TO US BY THE JOB AGENCIES, IT IS FROM THE TAX PAYER, YET THE JOB AGENCIES ETC PROFIT FORM US AND THE TAX PAYER FOR DOING WHAT.

    THEY GET MONEY THEIR BONUS AND PAYMENTS BY GETTING PEOPLE INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE AND OTHER PROGRAMMES, WE DO ALL THEIR WORK ON THE JOBACTIVE WEBSITE, AND THEN WE ARE UNEMPLOYABLE AS ALL OUR TIME GOES INTO BEING ON THE WEBSITE, AND THE PROGRAMMES THAT THEY GET PAID FOR NOT US, WE DO ALL THE WORK, THEY GET PAID AND BONUSES FOR OUR WORK, WE DO THEIR WORK, THAT MAKES US UNEMPLOYABLE, THEY GET TO PARTY. WE GET BLAMED FOR COSTING MILLIONS, BECAUSE IT IS BETTER TO SPEND MILLIONS ON INFRASTRUCTURE THAN THE NEEDS OF AUSTRALIANS, AND THEY GET TO PARTY, WE GET CALLED BLUDGERS AND WE WORK ALL WEEK IN UNPAID THINGS, SPEND OUR TIME ON WEBSITES WATCHING OUT FOR WHATEVER ABUSE IS AIMED AT US, WHAT DO THEY DO, WE WORK OURSELVES INTO BEING UNEMPLOYABLE GETTING LABELLED BY “WORK FOR THE DOLE” THEY GET TITLES AND SOCIAL STATUS FOR LIVING OFF US AND THE TAX PAYER BASICALLY,

    THEY GET TO DICTATE ORDERS ON A WEBSITE, WE HAVE NO WAY OF DEFENDING OURSELVES AGAINST WRONGS OR ORDER FROM THE WEBSITE, THEY CAN MAKE US LOOK LIKE TOTAL IDIOTS EVEN IF THEY ARE WRONG ABOUT SOMETHING, WE HAVE NO AREA FOR A REPLY OR TO SAY THAT IS WRONG OR WHATEVER,

    WE LAVISH OURSELVES ON A BOUGHT CAPPUCCINO ONE A WEEK AND HOPE THAT THEY ARE NOT SPYING ON US, SPOILING OURSELVES, AS AN EXCUSE TO GET OUR BANK ACCOUNTS INVESTIGATED, THEY GET TO PARTY ON THE GOLD COAST. THEY GET OFFICES IN THE BEST PART OF TOWN, WHERE THEY CAN WATCH EVERYONE, WE HAVE TO USE OUR OWN TECHNOLOGICAL THINGS WE HAVE TO SOMEHOW HAVE PAID FOR OURSELVES AND PAY FOR OUR OWN PLANS, BUT WHAT DO THEY DO. THEY GET BONUS AND PAYMENTS OFF OUR POVERTY. THEY GET TO PARTY, FROM USING US TO WORK, AND THE TAX PAYERS MONEY MEANT FOR BASIC SURVIVAL WHICH APPARENTLY IS WORSE TO GIVE THAN A BIG NEW SHINY SOMETHING – IT IS GREAT THAT A BIG NEW SHINY SOMETHING COSTS MILLION BUT BAD THAT MILLIONS GOES TO SUPPORT PEOPLE IN NEED OR WITH GENUINE LIFE PROBLEMS WHICH EVERYONE HAS AND NEEDS SUPPORT WITH IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER AT SOME STAGE OF THEIR LIFE…..BUT IT IS NOT DISCRIMINATION, OUR INVITES JUST WHERE NOT UPLOADED ON THE JOBACTIVE WEBSITE, MY PROVIDER WHO PROBABLY KNOWS ANOTHER PROVIDER, WHO PROBABLY KNOWS THIS LOT, JUST ACCIDENTALLY LEFT ME OF THE PARTY INVITES PUT ON OUR JOBACTIVE WEBSITES BY MISTAKE – OH NO DON’T SAY THAT NOW THE PROVIDERS WILL START ENFORCING “LETS GET TO KNOW YOU” OH NO – SATURDAY NIGHT – “LET GET TO KNOW YOU” TURN UP – SPEND YOU SATURDAY NIGHT WITH OTHER UNEMPLOYED AND HAVE A BLOODY GOOD TIME FOR THE PICTURES OR THERE WILL BE A RUDE WARNING ON YOU WEBSITE PAGE ON MONDAY, SAID WITH A SMILE AND PUT IN OTHER WORDS. SO HAVING FUN ARE YOU LUCKY TO SPEND YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT IN OUR OFFICE.. AND WE’LL LEAVE YOU HERE WITH YOUR MINDSET, OTHER UNEMPLOYED AS WE RUSH OFF TO THE GOLD COAST, HELP YOURSELF TO THE PRINGLES FROM ALDI, AND HELP YOURSELF, DON’T BE AFRAID, DRINK ALL THE BLACK AND GOLD LABEL “FANTA” [ON SPECIAL FOR 50C} YOU LIKE, IT IS DELICIOUS.

    THIS IS SO UNAUSTRALIAN, THIS IS UNAUSTRALIAN AT THE LEAST, WHERE IS THE ROYAL COMMISSION.

  70. Will Labour actually do anything about this or just change the names and say well that is done.

    Ok so here are some suggestions that fit the reality of what some groups do actually

    DHS – Department of Human Slave {trade, supporters of human slave trade}
    Department of Jobs and Small Business – Department of Job disfuntionality and Small Minds {small pen… small vision..small jobs, Department of bull…, Department of Bludgers who call other people bludgers…. well they are not that bad but why do they exist
    Job Search Agencys – Just Stick it up you Ar… and pi… off you evil little bastards and women who like that
    Job Active – Just Actively living off people on welfare in their support of Job Search Agencies
    Job Search Agencys – Just Seriously Allowed to live off people on welfare Just So Evil, Just Such Arseholes.. Just Sucking up to Anyway in Power…so many fit

  71. SARINA RUSSO PTY LTD – SUCH A ROTTEN PACK OF LIARS, SERIOUSLY RORT. POLITICANS LOVE TO RORT POLITICANS SERIOUSLY ROTTEN PATHETIC LOOSY ABUSIVE MONGRELS, SO ROTTEN AND INCOMPETENT IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE.

  72. STOP SARINA RUSSO THEY HAVE PAID OF THE POLICITICANS NOW THEY ARE DOING THE SAME WITH ALL THE PROVIDERS AND TEH WORST ONES AND THEY ARE THE WORST UNDERNEATH THE GLAMOUR - URGENT says:

    SARINA RUSSO IS GETTING ALL THE JOB PROVIDERS IN WITH THEM, TO GANG UP ON PEOPLE, AND THE WORST ONES TOO. THEY ARE CHARMING AND WHATEVER ELSE ALL THE OTHER PROVIDERS, JUST LIKE THEY DID THE POLITICIANS TO GET THE TENDERS. THIS IS REALLY BAD BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST UNBELIEVABLE. THEY DO NOTHING, AND JUST WANT TO TAKE OVER EVERYWHERE AND ANYWHERE. ROYAL COMMISSION FOCUSED ON SARINA RUSSO… URGENTLY URGENTLY URGENTLY. NOW NOW NOW NOW

  73. IT IS NOT ONLY LIBERAL THEY GAVE MONEY TO, BUT ALMOST AS MUCH TO LABOUR. THEY GO TO REGIONS AND GET STRAIGHT IN, CHARM, LOCAL MPS, GET A PHOTO IN THE LOCAL PAPER AND THEY ARE … SOLD. THEY HAVE SOLD THEMSELVES AND FROM THERE, GETTING APPROVAL FROM THE LOCAL MPS – LABOUR OR LIBERAL, IT IS NOT A LABOUR OR LIBERAL THING THEY GET IN WITH BOTH.

    SO WILL LABOUR REALLY GET RID OFF THEM AS THEY ARE JUST A WAIT OF MONEY, OR WILL THEY JUST GET IN WITH THEM.. SO FAR THEY ARE THINKING OF GETTING IN WITH THEM. THEY ARE IMPRESSED BY THEM. LABOUR ARE IMPRESSED BY THEM BUT JUST THINK THEY NEED TO MAKE THEM DO MORE WITH THE UNEMPLOYED. PLEASE HELP THE UNEMPLOYED, EVEN IF YOU VOTE LABOUR THIS IS ABOUT STOPPING ABUSE OF THE POOR AND PEOPLE ON BENEFITS, SO IF YOU ARE ONLY DOING THIS TO SUPPORT LABOUR YOU ARE MAKING IT WORSE FOR US. PLEASE

  74. LETS HOPE LABOUR DO SOMETHING ABOUT JOB AGENCIES, AND ALL THAT CAN BE DONE IS THAT THEY ARE SHUT DOWN.

    BUT WILL THEY REALLY DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN TRY TO HELP BY GIVING THE JOB AGENCES JOB ACTIVE, DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS MORE POWER OVER JOB SEEKERS AND THEIR PAYMENTS.?

    THIS ATTITUDE NOT TO QUESTION LABOUR BUT TO JUST BE A LOYAL FOLLOWER, IS COMMUNISM, IS THE SAME MENTALITY AS THE JOB AGENCIES ARE FORCING PEOPLE INTO. AND THE SAME AS JOB ACTIVE. TO BE SLAVES WITHOUT QUESTION AND PUT UP WITH ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY ARE RIGHT, SUPERIOR AND CANNOT BE QUESTIONED EVEN.

    SO THIS IS COMMUNIST MILITARY STYLE DICTATORSHIP, NOT DEMOCRACY, DEMOCRACY IS WHERE PEOPLE CAN QUESTION AND SUBMIT THEIR VIEWS, WHERE PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED, CAN BE INVOVLED AND RESPECT FOR QUESTION NOT ABUSED FOR IT OR TOLD THEY ARE BEING DISLOYAL. SO THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH LABOUR, PEOPLE JUST MINDLESSLY FOLLOW THE GREAT LEADER SHORTEN WHO NO ONE LIKES, AND IS A CONVICTED RAPIST EVEN. SO WHY IS THIS BETTER FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. IT IS THE SAME.

    SO LETS WHAT WILL LABOUR DO? ANSWER – NOTHING IT SEEMS BUT GIVE THEM MORE POWER OVER US, AND EVEN START WORKING FOR THEM.

  75. UNIONS ARE OK – BUT THEY OFTEN JUST DO THE SAME THING, THEY THINK THEY KNOW BETTER THAN THE PEOPLE, SAY THEY ACT FOR THE PEOPLE, BUT THEN SHUT THE PEOPLE OUT AND GO AND DO WHAT SUITS THEM, IN THE NAME OF THE PEOPLE, FOLLOWING A SORT OF DICTATOR AND SAYING THAT IS HOW IT SHOUDL BE, THAT EVERYONE IS IN AGREEMENT AND HARMONEY AND PEACE AND ALL THAT. THEY IS NOT RIGHT EITHER, PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DISAGREE, HAVE THEIR OWN OPINIONS, NOT GET ABUSED FRON HAVING A DIFFERENT OPINION TO THE PARTY OF LEADER, THAT IS COMMUNIST MILITARY STYLE DICTATORSHIP. SO WHAT IS GOING ON HERE, ARE WE ALSO ALLOWED TO DISAGREE WITH THE GREAT WONDEROUS LEADER, AND HIS HENCHMEN AND WOMEN WHO LIKE MEN LIKE THAT. I MEAN COME ON SHORTEN IS A KNOWN WOMANISER, A CONVICTED RAPIST. HE GOES ON AND ON AND ON AND ON ABOUT THREE POLICIES, SUPPORTING THE LBGT, SUPPORTING MUSLIMS, AND SUPPORTING IMMIGRATION. THAT IS ALL, HOW IS THAT HELPING AUSTRALIA REALLY AND ALSO HE IS A HYPOCRITE OF THE WORST KIND.

    SHORTEN GETS HIS SUPPORT AND VOTES NO DOUBT BY MAKING OUT EVERY ONE IS RACIST OR HOMOPHOBIC, AND SOCIALLY DISCRIMINATORY AGAINST THE WORKERS OR THE WORKING CLASS OR THE LOW INCOME PEOPLE — WHO IS HE MARRIED TO, EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO LIVE UNDER THE VIEW THEY HAVE TO ACCEPT THIRD WORLD LIVESTYLES AND VALUES AND THAT IS SOME HOW BETTER, AND THAT IS CRAP, IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN OVER SEAS THAT IS FUCKING CRAP. LIFE IN AUSTRALIA AND CREATED BY AUSTRALIAN, WHITE AUSTRALIAS IS THE BEST. THIRD WORLD LIVES ARE JUST CORRUPTION BASICALY AND THAT IS NOT OUR FAULT.

    SHORTEN MAKES OUT IF WE DON’T LIKE THIS LIFESTYLE OR WHATEVER WAY OF LIVE WE ARE RACIST, BUT WHO IS HE MARRIED TO.
    WHAT SORT OF LIFESTYLE DOES SHORTEN AND HIS LABOUR CRIMINAL MATES LIVE

    SHORTEN IS MARRIED TO YOUNG BLONDE WHITE WOMEN WHO IS THE DAUGHER OF THE EX GOVERNER GENERAL.
    SHORTEN IS MARRIED TO THE WHITE UPPER CLASS AND GOT IN WITH THE WITH UPPER CLASS LIFESTYLE AND LIVES THAT LIFESTYLE LIKE ALL OF LABOUR, WHILE TELLING HIS LOYAL FOLLOWERS TO KEEP HIM IN THAT LIFESTYLE AND BRING DOWN OTHERS LIVING THAT LIFESTYLE, DESERVEDLY SO BY MOST, BRING THEM DOWN AND TELLING HIS LOYAL FOLLOWERS TO ACCEPT A THIRD WORLD LIFESTYLE AND USING THEM TO KEEP HIM IN A FIRST WORLD LIFESTYLE

    SO WHAT IS THE REAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES – JOB ACTIVE. IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME.
    THE LIBERALS ARE AT LEAST HONEST ABOUT LIVING THAT LIFESTYLE AND EVERYONE WANTS THAT AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT, BUT THE LIBERALS ARE NEGLIGENT, AND BEING VERY IGNORANT AND TURNING A BLIND EYE TO PEOPLE IN NEED AND THIS IS NOT MUCH BETTER.

    MAKE THE LISTEN AND STOP RELYING ON THIS HYPOCRITE SHORTEN AND HIS MAFIA MATES. THEY ARE HIS MATES TOO.

  76. Shorten has had the opportunity to state he will increase New start but has failed to do so yapping about an inquiry. Cassandra Goldie has pointed out bluntly we don’t need a fucking inquiry but need a commitment to increase by $75 a week.

    Shorten is hedging his bets between the dole blodger scare nutters and the suffering unemployed.

    Religious fuck Toad Scomo has predictably offered zero.

  77. people on the Dole DO NOT NEED JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH/DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS

    Close those bastards down, they do nothin but keep people unemployed to make bonuses THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO THEM.

    Blokes and women are not that stupid, not dumb arses like them, why if you need a friggin job agency can’t we all just go to those other ones, If there are no jobs in the papers or if you go to a department or company and they don’t have jobs, where the fuck are they getting all the jobs from. They make out we aren’t loking for work, but who can afford to live on this pitance of dole money. You have no choice but to get a job and why wouldn’t you.Where the hell do these people keep all the bloody jobs they claim they get for people who end up on the dole. LIKE WHERE TO THEY GET THESE JOBS. tHEY NORMALLY go in thepaper or on the job board, when it was the CES jobs went on the board and you just went in and found a job and rang the boss bloke {or female now yeah} SO JUST WHERE THE FUCKIN HELL DO THEY GET THE JOBS. THEY TAKE THEM AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE LOOKING AND KEEP THEM PROMISING THE BOSSES MONEY FOR EMPLOYING PEOPLE OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY WOULD EMPLOY US ANYWAY. BOSSES DON’T WANT THIS SHIT IF THEY ARE ALRIGHT ANYWAY.

    1. TELL CURRENT AFFAIR PUBLIC ABOUT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES, IT IS NOT REALLY CENTRELINK, PUBLIC DO NOT KNOW ABOUT JOB SEARCH MAY THING THAT THEY ARE GOOD says:

      THE PUBLIC NEED TO KNOW ABOUT JOB SEARCH HORRORS AND JOBACTIVE, HOW BAD THEY ARE. TELL CURRENT AFFAIR ABOUT THEM AS PEOPLE, MEDIA PROBABLY THINK JOB SEARCH ETC ARE GOOD OR BETTER THAN CENTRELINK. WHEN IT IS MOSTLY THE OPPOSITE, JOB SEARCH/JOBACTIVE ARE CORRUPTING AND MAKING CENTRELINK BRUTAL AND ABUSIVE, THEY WERE NOT LIKE THIS. GET THE HORROR OF JOB SEARCH AGENCIES AND HOW THEY PROFITEER FROM KEEPING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYABLE ETC, GET THESE STORIES ANON MIGHT BE BEST IF NEEDED, OUT TO THE PUBLIC, ON CURRENT AFFAIR ETC- TELL THEM A ROYAL COMMISSION IS NEEDED INTO THESE RORTERS AND ABUSERS, ESPECIALLY SARINA RUSSO WHO CONTRIBUTES TO THE LIBERAL PARTY THROUGH DONATIONS AND PARTIES ETC, AND ALSO LESSER BUT TO LABOUR AND OTHER POLITICIANS TO TRY TO TAKE OVER ALL THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ETC. THEY ARE THE WORST AND THE MOST ABUSIVE.

      WHILE IT IS GREAT TO SEE STORIES ON CURRENT AFFAIR ABOUT THE DISGUSTING TREATMENT OF PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK PAYMENTS, WE DO NOT WANT TO LOOSE CENTRELINK – JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE TRYING TO TAKE OVER CENTRELINK, IT IS THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES THAT ARE DESTROYING EVERYTHING. CENTRELINK OR WHAT USE TO BE THE CES WHERE GOOD. TOUGH BUT FAIR, IT IS ONLY SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THESE SO CALLED EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES BEING GIVEN CONTRACTS AND POWER OF PEOPLE ON BENEFITS THAT THINGS HAVE BECOME HORRIFIC.

      PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET STORIES IF POSSIBLE OR THE FIGURES ETC REGARDING WHO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES PROFITEER OFF THE UMEMPLOYED. HOW THEY MAKE MONEY FROM MAKING PEOPLE DO WORK FOR THE DOLE AND OTHER UNPAID ACTIVITIES, HOW THEY DO NOTHING THAT PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES COULD DO, BUT PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PEOPLE SOCIAL STATUS OR CONTROL THEIR PAYMENTS. HOW THEY DO NOTHING, HOW ALL THIS MONEY GOES TO THEM AND THEIR OFFICES, COMPANY CARS ETC, THE BILLIONS THAT GO TO JOBACTIVE/JOBSEARCH RATHER THAN JOB CREATION WITH EXISTING ORGANISATIONS, HELPING PEOPLE IN FINANCIAL STRESS, EMERGENCIES OR INCREASING PAYMENTS. GET STORIES, FIGURES ETC OUT THERE ABOUT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES – HOW THEY EXPECT YOU TO SPEND ALL WEEK LOOKING FOR JOBS YOU CANNOT EVEN APPLY FOR IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CRITERIA TO EVEN APPLY BECAUSE WE ARE FORCED TO DO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR OTHER THINGS. HOW THEY ARE JUST UNNECESSARY, ABUSIVE, LIAR, CHEATS, PLEASE DO NOT BLAME CENTRELINK TOO MUCH, PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND OR KNOW ABOUT THESE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES… THE ATTENTION MUST BE PUT ON THEM, WE DO NOT WANT THEM TO TAKE OVER CENTRELINK OR GET RID OF CENTRELINK.. THAT WOULD BE THE END. ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOBACTIVE/JOB SEARCH AGENCIES NOW!

      1. WHY ARE THE MEDIA NOT INFORMED ABOUT ABUSE BY JOBACTIVE AND JOB SEARCH EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES. THEY ARE JUST EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES BUT HAVE CONTROLL OVER OUR BASIC NEEDS MONEY, THEY ARE TAKING AWAY OUR HUMAN RIGHTS - WHY HAVE THEY NOT BEEN EXPOSED says:

        WHY ARE YOU NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT JOB/ACTIVE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES. These places are simply Employment Agencies, but they are allowed to literally own us, they have been given power to abuse us and even if you complain to JobActive about them they do nothing. JobActive know they are dodgy as, and they just ignore this and let them abuse us and take away our rights.

        This is the worst abuse in the history of Australia. WHY ARE YOU NO DOING ANYTHING. WHY HAVE YOU NOT GONE TO THE MEDIA EVERY DAY. WHY ARE THE MEDIA ADVERTISING JOBACTIVE NOT REPORTING ON THERE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE.

        PLEASE YOU CANNOT JUST DO THIS AND PUT UP WITH IT. DO SOMETHING

  78. I now have 2 demerit points against me because I got a full time job 1,600 kilometres from my home and did not keep looking for jobs dictated by my job plan after I started full time work because my job service plan was not updated regardless of the fact Max employment knew I had started full time work because they had to send documents to my employer so it could apply for the $25,000 the government was offering to employ me after 9 months unemployment. Who found this job – me, not my job service provider!

    Max Employment says I should not stress about the demerit points because the system is crazy. Nice.

    This is the type of system you have to work with when the Liberal National Party fucks with the system to gain political points by bashing the dole bludger drum while letting large companies and multinationals escape paying tax.

    1. HI vladimir, where did you get the $25000.00 dollars from? employers can only receive either 10k or 6.5k depending on your stream.
      I am sure thaat Max employment did not mention the relocation assistance they could have provided you, paying for removals and rent etc i am sure they did not mention this in your meetings. I would enquire with Max about how come they didn’t help you move or relocate you. https://www.jobs.gov.au/relocation-assistance-take-job <—- heres the link to it.

  79. Neither Labor or Liberal have promised to increase Newstart therefore if you give a fuck about the present fuckwitted level of Newstart you should vote for neither of these brain dead heartless parties. I have a job and am earning 93000 bucks a year but I remember being on the dole for a long time so now its payback time fuckers. There are 700,000 on the dole so why are they not screaming like fuck on this forum. Another year of that religious nutter yapping in tongues moron Scott Morrison and it will not be safe to walk the streets so throw the fool out but don’t let Shorten in either because he is purposely keeping quiet on Newstart increase simply for votes ie political power. The game is up – out with the swine!!!!l

  80. Hi Kelly.
    I was recently employed as a employment consultant, which is not normally my field of employment. I worked there for approximately 5 years under both the new and the old contracts.
    I have a good understanding of the system including the star rating system which employment providers are judged on for performance. I have also just recently sent an email to the “Unemployment workers union” outlining various failures in this system.

    I understand under the new federal budget that the newstart recipients would not be given a boost of any amount except the energy bill’s addition 75$.

    Why I have decided to write to you is after hearing the “Prime Ministers” response as to why this would not be changed.

    “Asked why the Coalition had again declined to lift the unemployment benefit, the prime minister, Scott Morrison, said the government was “getting them into work” instead”

    I fail to see how not raising newstart would get people into jobs faster.
    I myself have had a relationship breakdown and had to apply for newstart only to be told there would be a wait of a few months after applying to be able to star receiving any income. To someone who has no income this wait time is honestly ridiculous. Even though you can get back payed the amount its honestly nearly breaching on basic human rights.

    The government pays Indue Pty Ltd 6000$ per person on the cashless welfare card but fails to act when it comes to helping out those in need who are on newstart.

    I have witnessed, due to having around 140 people on my caseload, Couchsurfing, Homelessness, Mental Health, Drug Additions, People with a disability (Centrelink gets this wrong so much) and have had to financially punish these people. This system is wrong and I understand that you are looking at remodelling the system, but I lived and breathed this system and saw the affects of it.

    People are made to work, forced into jobs they do not want to do even sex offenders access job agencies and are made to work without notifying the employer of their legal status, this is so wrong and putting the general public in danger. I have also witnessed and seen dangerous work for the dole programs, forcing people to travel over 1 hour and 30 minutes to and from an activity while only giving them an additional 20$ a fortnight.

    The practices of job agencies are outright criminal and do not take into account personal circumstances. I admit there are people on unemployment who could work and don’t want to, but statistics show generational unemployment cycles are hard to break without resources.
    Time and time again employment providers fail to even mention what they can use their funding for which I understand there is a lot of funding for agencies left, and fail to give sound clear advice. These are untrained people and the only training received is a question and answer quiz.

    In rural suburbs employment is nearly impossible to create but people on unemployment are still expected to be able to find employment. This is ridiculous and the whole system is a failure of Australia and its people who are in need.

    Scott Morrison also said “The difference about Newstart Allowance is that people on Newstart aren’t intended to be there for a long period of time and they also have access to a range of other income support payments,” I would like to know what other income support payments he is talking about? a crisis payment from Centrelink? a food hamper from the Salvos? what are these other options he talked about.

    I have noted and kept a dairy of my experiences working within this field and the dangers involved. If you are wondering what dangers please ask the family of Josh Park-Fing who died while on a work for the dole activity. He had also complained of sore back before he fell out of a tractor bed but the host failed to act or to send him home.

    These practices and more are outright wrong you are treating the unemployed and Australian public as slaves and its wrong and dangerous. Sex offenders are required to undertake these tasks also without the host knowing or being made aware and its a flaw in the system. Some activities do require a WWCC and Crimcheck but most don’t.

    You are the minister for small jobs and business meaning you control this, I do not see any support behind Josh Park-Fing’s family. Because he wasn’t employed no one really gave a shit and its proof in the ministers response.

    The blame initially stands at the Australian Governments feet and primarily your feet not in the sense you were in this office and I understand you have only been elected since 2018 at this position but has the face of the Department of Small jobs and business. These activities are looked into by untrained workers ticking boxes to get a work for the dole program up and running so they can put people into within 5 days to boost their star rating. These systems are what killed poor Josh, these are the systems implemented by your department and managed by your department. How can someone untrained say if a worksite is safe? just by ticking boxes? its insane.

    “The Department of Employment provided an internal report to employment minister Michaelia Cash in September last year, which she has refused to release”
    “It’s alleged the RASQ failed to implement adequate systems to prevent workers riding on the trailer, including ensuring workers were adequately supervised; and that the RASQ could have better maintained the tractor. If guilty, it faces a maximum fine of $1.5m for each charge”

    I have a lot more grievances but I will leave it there for now. I understand I will not get a response more than likely but I felt I need to say something.

    Thanks.

  81. Have I got a bed time story for you.

    Ok so recently I moved back to my home town of Townsville, North Queensland in February 2018, and already had a hard time finding work, so I decided to study, which was great as I was able to get out of the house and do something productive for once and make some new friends. Anyway things have been going great now but CENTERLINK thinks it’s wise to keep cutting me off. I have always attended my classes and did my job search, hell I’ll even ask around about jobs at shops and other places, anything to get off the dole. Anyway I go to see what the issue is and apparently it’s because my attendance hasn’t been marked but I have actually been at the course, I’ve been told to go on jobactive or whatever it’s called to do just that and the damn thing keeps crashing or won’t let me log in…… oh yeh I continuously have issues with my gov aswell. Ok so I will go in to see my employment advisor, who tries their best absolutely, they sad they can mark my attendance I just send them an email or come in after class and I said I was happy to do that. They made one tiny era and centerlink had cut me off completely. I had to go to centerlink down the road after this and it was already 3:30 in the afternoon, I was so tired, I finally got to see someone, and they tried to put me on the phone and I said, oh no honey I will be seeing one of your staff in person, please and thank you.” As nicely as possible. They hesitated and put me through. I got to see the staff member and she said I need to go back to neato employment to rectify this I said, no I know for sure this is your job please do it, I’m not asking for too much. At this point I was already starving, beyond all belief, I was weak and couldn’t sleep due to stomach aches, because I foolishly got my loan and went on a little shopping spree (I needed new clothes) they thought about making me wait another week for my payment. this woman knew I wasn’t messing around at this point and had fixed the issue. I went on my phone, logged in and saw that it was done, I shook her hand and thanked her and was on my merry way, despite feeling like I was going to faint.

    Look yes I wouldn’t say I’m the best with money but I always put my priorities before anything else. My rent alone in those days was up to $360 a fortnight and they already knew that, I was living in backpackers too so I already knew I couldn’t claim rent assistance. I had to pay for laundry bus fair and my medications ( I suffer from excruciating back pain from a car accident I had when I was moving up here). I’m not perfect ok… judge me if you must but we are all in the same boat, I know tones of people personally that are being royally screwed by centerlink and their dishonest ways. Something must be done, they cannot keep doing this.

    1. You are dead right. Centrelink is a mess and a mess because of the present heartless theiving clowns in power but not for long. I now have a job, its casual, it pays big money but I am still reporting. Now my job service provider Max Employment says I have to attend some type of education class. What precisely do they think they can teach a 63 year old man with two university degrees? What fuckwit Numbskull in the government thought this time waster up? Bloody idiots. The privatisation of the Commonwealth Employment Service is a bankrupt capitalistic fuckup which the swine who privatised it should be made to pay with their homes and other assets and then they should be flogged senseless.

      1. Hi Vladmir,

        Why no people looking into who causes this disaster, CES use to be Centrelink and was ok decades away, who did this, it was we remember that one big fat refugee guy now in America, with that Abbot, them two did this. Why people not say who did this because no one like them, hate the big bloke, got rid of him overseas, sacked him, the right wings even sacked him. WHY PEOPLE NOT CALL THEM OUT ON IT MATE, THEN PEOPLE WILL MIGHT SAY WELL IF THOSE AWFUL PEOPLE THEN MUST BE WRONG, EVEN THE RIGHT WING HATE THEM, SO THEY MAY SAY IF THEY MADE UP THIS DISASTER, WITH THEIR IDEAS, IT MUST BE BAD AS SHIT – OK SOME ONE DO RESEARCH AND CALL THEM OUT, BUT WAS THIS FAT BASTARD AND THE RELIGIOUS NUT CASE ABBOT WHO JUST TRYING TO TURN EVERYONE ACCORDING TO CATHOLIC CHURCH WUTH HIM AS HEAD OF CHURCH SORT OF THING IN HIS HEAD THEY SAY. THINKS HE WORKS FOR GOD, SO CAN DO ANYTHING AND OTHER ONE DO ANYTHIGN FOR POWER, SO PEOPLE MIGHT UNDERSTAND IF YOU RESEARCH CHECK WHAT I SAY, THINK IT RIGHT SO PLEASE CHECK AND SAY WHO DID THIS EVIL MESS – RUINED WHAT WAS ALRIGHT BACK IN THE DAY, WAS GOOD THEN, NICE UNDERSTAND BUT TAKE NO SHIT FROM BAD ONESE, BUT UNDERSTAND FAIR BUT TOUGH AND GOT IT RIGHT, JUST HAS TO PUT IN A FORM AND DO WHAT YOU COULD FOR YOU HUMAN RIGHT TO RECEIVE SOCIAL SECURITY ADN THEY UNDERSTOOD THEIRE WOULD ALWAY BE UNEMPLOYMENT PRIASE YOU IF YOU GET EVEN A HOURS WORK, NOT ALL THESE RESTRICTION, ON TIME AND MONEY PRAISE AND SUPPORT YOU EVEN WITH A DAYOF CASUAL WORK – NOT THIS YOU CAN ONLY GET PERMANET WORK, THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE US OUR OF CASUAL SELF EMPLOY TO MAKE MONEY THIS JOB AGENCIES THEY ARE TAILORED TOWARDS TO MAKE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES THEY NEED TO KEEP PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED, TELL POICTICIANS THIS ALL RIGHT MATES

  82. MAKE BOTH SIDES OF POLITICS SACK JOB SEARCH JOB ACTIVE NOW, THEY ARE RIPPING OFF THE WELFARE SYSTEM, IT IS JOB SEARCH MAINLY RIPPING OF THE WELFARE SYSTEM NOT UNEMPLOYED OR DISABLED ETC. PUT THEM ON THE DOLE says:

    ROYAL COMMISSION NOW NOW NOW – CLOSE DOWN JOB SEARCH AGENCIES NOW OR WE WILL PROTEST AND EXPOSE YOU LABOUR AND LIBERAL FOR KNOWINLY LEAVING PEOPLE TO BE ABUSED, THE WORST HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE ANYONE IN THIS COUNTRY HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO. CLOSE THEM DOWN AND PUT INVESTIGATE JOB AGENCIES FOR RIPPING OFF THE WELFARE SYSTEM FOR BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, AND FOR THE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE OF POOR PEOPLE AND SOON IT WILL BE PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IF THEY ARE NOT STOPPED, AND THEY JOB SEARCH ARE GETTING WORSE, TO PROVE THEY ARE NECESSARY SO THEY WON’T BE SHUT DOWN BY LABOUR OR WHOEVER IN A FEW YEARS.

    THEY HAVE BE BE CLOSED DOWN NOW BEFORE THEY CON THE LABOUR PARTY AGAIN, AGAIN, IF THEY GET IN. OR BY THE TIME LIBERALS SUPPOSEDLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEM THEY WILL HAVE CONNED THEM AGAIN IT IS PEOPLE ON WELFARE WHO ARE BAD NOT THEM.

    IT IS TIME TO RIGHTS THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION AND THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION.

    ONE STORY ON CURRENT AFFAIR WAS GOOD BUT THIS NEEDS TO BE RELENTLESS PUBLICITY EXPOSING WHAT IS HAPPENING, JUST LIKE THE ABUSE OF PEOPLE ON WELFARE BEING MADE OUT TO BE ALL CRIMINALS WHEN IT IS JOB SEACH PEOPLE. WE HAVE TO BE RELENTLESS, LIKE THEIR BAD PUBICITY OF THE UNEMPLOYED, BUT THEY ARE WRONG AND WE ARE RIGHT, SO IT HAS TO KEEP GOING UNTIL THE TRUTH IS KNOWN BY THE PUBLIC, PROTEST, CONTACT HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSIONS, PROTEST UNTIL AND NON STOP UNTIL JOB SEARCH ARE NO MORE. THEY ARE AS EVIL AND THE NAZIS OR ISIS

    WHAT ARE LABOUR OR LIBERAL DOING WITH REGARDS TO NEWSTART AND OTHER WELFARE – TELL THEM PEOPLE WILL EXPOSE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES FOR THE CROOKS THEY ARE IF THEY DO NOT GET RID OF THEM NOW AND PUT UP THE WELFARE BENEFITS.

    THEY KNOW THAT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE REALLY BAD, BUT WILL NOT ADMIT HOWEVER THEY KNOW THEY ARE JUST CROOKED. EXPOSE THE FACT THAT BOTH LABOUR AND LIBERLA KNOW JOB SEARCH ETC ARE OUT OF TOUCH AND DISGUSTING CROOKS, AND THE GOVERNMENT BOTH SIDES KNOW THIS BUT LEAVE PEOPLE TO BE ABUSED BY THEM. THEY NEED TO SHUT THEM DOWN NOW AND PUT UP BENEFITS NOW, THEY KNOW THIS BUT ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING BECAUSE WE DO NOT MATTER, THEY DO NOT CARE BUT KNOW THAT THE ABUSE OF UNEMPLOYED, DISABILITIES IS HORRIF. EXPOSE THEM

    JOB SEACH AGENCIES ARE CORRUPTING CENTRELINK AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES – DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THIS SITUATION BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE, IF IT IS NOT ALREADY, OBVIOUSLY THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE DEPARMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, TWO MINISTER HAVE RESIGNED AND THERE IS NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS, DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION

    IT IS TIME THAT JOB SEARCH AGENCIES BECAME ANSWERABLE TO THE UNEMPLOYED, THE PUBLIC, THE TAX PAYER AND EVEN HONESTLY TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR WHAT THEY ARE REALLY DOING TO THE UNEMPLOYED, USING AND ABUSING THE UNEMPLOYED OR PARTLY EMPLOYED EVEN.
    ASK YOURSELVES THESE QUESTIONS. IT IS TIME TO QUESTION THESE SO CALLED JOB SEARCH AGENCIES.
    HOW DO THESE DECEITFUL ORGANISATIONS MAKE THEIR MONEY, HOW DO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES GET THE POWER OVER PEOPLE IN NEED TO STOP THEIR WELFARE MONEY, NEWSTART ALLOWANCE AND OTHER BENFITS THAT COMES FROM THE TAX PAYER FOR PEOPLE IN NEED.
    ALSO WHY DO THESE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES CONSTANTLY SUSPEND AND STOP THE ONLY MONEY SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMING IN, WHY DO THEY STOP THIS MONEY, LEAVING PEOPLE WITHOUT ANY MONEY TO BUY FOOD, PAY RENT, OR PAY BILLS, FOR NO REASON REALLY.
    IF PEOPLE CANNOT FIND THEIR OWN JOBS WHERE DO THESE DESPOTS GET MORE JOBS FROM – THE ANSWER TO THAT ONE IS THEY TAKE THEM FROM THE PAPERS OR WEBSITES, OR THEY GET THEM BEFORE THEY ARE ADVERTISED, THE BAD ONES, ACTUALLY STOPPING PEOPLE LOOKING FOR JOBS AND THEREFORE INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT. THEY CAN ALSO JUST KEEP THESE JOBS FOR THEIR MATES ETC.
    NICE OFFICES AND SUITS ARE JUST THAT FOR SOME PEOPLE – BUT IT FOOLS A LOT OF PEOPLE. WHO PAYS FOR THEIR PLUSH OFFICES, EQUIPMENT, TRAVEL, MOTELS, COMPANY PERKS ETC, IT IS THE MONEY FROM THE TAX PAYER MEANT TO GO TO SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO ARE UNEMPLOYED.
    WHAT DO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ACTUALLY DO… NOTHING.
    HOW DO PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK MONEY MEANT FOR PEOPLE IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS, HOW TO PEOPLE ON CENTRELINK AFFORD TO GO TO WORK FOR THE DOLE THREE TIMES A WEEK OR TO UNPAID ACTIVITIES, THINGS THAT WILL INDENTIFY THEM AS UNEMPLOYED ON AN APPLICATION.
    TO EVEN GO TO THE SHOPS ENDS UP COSTING PEOPLE AT LEAST $20.00, BUY THE TIME YOU PAY FOR FOOD OR SHOES OR JACKETS, BAGS AND CLOTHES YOU NEED TO BE ACCEPTED EVEN IN SOCIETY OR TO TRAVEL ON EVEN PUBLIC TRANSPORT EVEN WITH A CONCESSION.
    SO PEOPLE WHO GET NO MORE THAN BETWEEN $240 – $360 DOLLARS A WEEK MOSTLY HAVE TO THEN SPEND AT LEAST $40.00 TO $100 OR MORE DOLLARS GOING TO UNNECESSARY, UNPAID OCCUPATIONS THAT ARE NOT PAID FOR. THE “DOLE” IS NOT EVEN ENOUGH TO PAY FOR MOST PEOPLES FOOD AND ELECTRICITY LET ALONE RENT AND OTHER NECESSITIES.

    PEOPLE ON THE “DOLE” ARE ALSO NOW EXPECTED TO HAVE MOBILE PHONES, INTERNET CONNECTIONS AS WELL AS LANDLINES ETC. SO IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES. WHILE IT DOES MAKE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE ON PAYMENTS IN SOME WAYS THEY SHOULD NOT BE AUTOMATICALLY “EXPECTED” TO HAVE THESE EXTRA COSTS.

    PEOPLE ON CENTRELIN BENEFITS GET BETWEEN $240-$370 DOLLARS A WEEK, AND CAN ONLY HAVE ABOUT $5,000 IN THE BANK, AND MAYBE SOME ASSETS BUT THIS MONEY IS CUT BACK IF ANY ASSET MAKES MONEY. A PERSON HOUSE VALUE MAY BE USED BUT THERE REALLY ARE NO HOUSES AT THIS PRICE ANY MORE, EVEN IN REGIONAL AREAS.

    CENTRELINK CHECKS ARE SO THOROUGH AND RUTHLESS THAT IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE CHEATING THE SYSTEM. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CHEAT THE SYSTEM, IT COULD NOT HAPPEN REALLY.

    SO WHERE IS ALL THE MONEY REALLY GOING. WHY ARE THE GOVERNMENT SAYING THAT MORE AND MORE MONEY IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT PEOPLE IN NEED, AND IT IS THE PEOPLE ON NEWSTART THEY BLAME, VICTIMISE AND ACCUSE OF CHEATING AND LIEING AND BEING BLUDGERS

    HOWEVER ALL THE MONEY HAS NOT GONE TO PEOPLE ON BENEFITS, NEWSTART ETC OR DISABIITY PENSION. THIS HAS NOT CHANGED, AND IF THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE ON THESE BENEFIT THEN THAT IS BECAUSE THE POPULATION HAS INCREASED AND LACK OF JOBS. IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF PEOPLE IN NEED.

    BUT WHERE IS THE REAL INCREASE IN MONEY BEING SPEND – JOB SEARCH AGENCIES. THERE ARE NOW THOUSANDS OF THESE PLACES COSTLY BILLIONS SETTING UP EVERYWHERE. WHAT DO THEY DO. NOTHING. ALSO THEY NOT ONLY DO NOTHING THEY ARE STEALING THE MONEY MEANT TO GO TO PEOPLE IN NEED AND PROFITEERING FROM PEOPLE IN NEED.

    JOB SEARCH AGENCIES DO NOT CARE ABOUT EMPLOYMENT ALL THEY DO IS SET TARGET TO MAKE MONEY. WHAT ARE THESE TARGETS. GETTING PEOPLE INTO WORK FOR DOLE AND FULL TIME JOBS THAT DO NOT EXIST, SO THEY GET BONUSES AND COMMISSION FROM PEOPLE IN NEED. JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE PARASITES THAT LIVE OFF PEOPLE IN NEED AND MAKE THEIR MONEY BY MAKING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYABLE, WHO IS GOING TO EMPLOY SOMEONE HAS TO SAY TO AN EMPLOYER, “I AM A WILLING PARTICIPANT IN WORK FOR THE DOLE” OR I DO VOLUNTEER WORK, OR I SPEND MY DAYS WRITING A RESUME EVEN THOUGH I AM UNEMPLOYED. I MEAN WHAT ARE PEOPLE ON NEWSTART SUPPOSE TO PUT ON A RESUME IF THEY ARE KEPT UNEMPLOYED WRITING RESUMES SO THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES GET MONEY FROM MAKING THEM DO THAT ALL DAY ALL WEEK.

    JOB SEARCH AGENCIES HAVE PLUSH OFFICES, COMPANY CARS, EMPLOY NEW PEOPLE IN THE AREAS THEY GO TO FROM THEIR OWN PLACES. THEY GO TO PLACES WHERE UNEMPLOYMENT IS HIGH, WHERE THERE ARE NO FULL TIME JOBS, ON PURPOSE, BLAMING THE UNEMPLOYED AND FORCE THEM ONTO WORK FOR THE DOLE, SO THEY GET THE BONUSES. THEY GET BONUSES FOR FORCING BRUTUALLY ANY WAY THEY CAN, LIEING, CHEATING, BREAKING THE RULES THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO FOLLOW, SUSPENDING PEOPLE ONLY MONEY COMING IN TO ABUSE THEM INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR OTHER UNPAID ACTIVITIES COSTLY THE PERSON ON BENEFITS UPWARDS OF SIXTY DOLLARS A WEEK INTO THINGS THAT WILL KEEP THEM UNEMPLOYED AND/OR FORCE THEN ONTO THE STREETS, OR OUT OF THEIR MAYBE AFFORDABLE ACCOMMODATRION TO CITIES TO FIND FULL TIME WORK. HOW ARE THEY SUPPOSE TO COMPETE AND GO FROM UNEMPLOYED TO FULL TIME WORK.

    THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES MAKE NO MONEY FROM PEOPLE DOING CASUAL OR PART-TIME OR SELF EMPLOYMENT, THEREFORE THEY ARE…. THE ARE… FORCING PEOPLE ON BENEFITS OUT OF PART-TIME, CASUAL AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT, FORCING THEM TO GIVE THIS UP TO DO WORK FOR THE DOLE. THE ONLY WAY THEY MAY GET FULL TIME WORK IS THROUGH LESSER WORK, BUT JOB SEARCH ARE FORCING PEOPLE TO GIVE THIS UP BASICALLY TO DO UNPAID ACTIVITIES THEY CANNOT AFFORD, THAT MAKE THEM UNEMPLOYABLE, SO THEY GET COMMISSIONS, BONUSES AND CONGRATUALTIONS FOR BEING SO BRUTAL A ABUSIVE FROM THE GOVERNMENT IT SEEMS, WHO THINK THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING TO GET DOLE BLUDGERS INTO SOMETHING, BUT IT IS THAT THERE ARE NO JOBS FULL TIME OUTSIDE MAIN CITIES MOSTLY AND THAT PEOPLE CANNOT AFFORD THESE DAYS TO MOVE TO MAIN CITIES
    IT IS A RORT AND VERY VERY BAD. THERE MUST BE A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES COMMISSIONED BY THE SO CALLED DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS, A DEPARTMENT THAT ITSELF COULD NOT RUN A TUCK SHOP. IT IS A RORT THAT IS DESTROYING PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK. ALL THIS MONEY SHOULD BE GOING TO CREATE MORE JOBS AT EXISTING PLACES IN PLACES OF HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT, TO EDUCATION FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED IN, PEOPLE FROM AREAS OF LOW INCOME, SUPPORT FOR ELECTRICITY AND TECHNOLOGY TO HELP PEOPLE AND HELP THEM LOOK FOR WORK THEMSELVES.

    JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ARE BASICALLY TAKING OVER THE LIVES OF PEOPLE ON NEWSTART AND USING AND ABUSING THEM TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF – CENTRELINK AND THE GOVERNMENT ARE FOOLED BY THEM OR DO NOT CARE AND ARE BEING CORRUPTED BY THEM. CENTRELINK IS OK, AND USE TO BE QUITE GOOD, BUT BASICALLY PEOPLE TAX PAYER MONEY IS BEING TAKEN BY THIS RORT. STOP BLAMING PEOPLE IN NEED AND GET A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO JOB SEARCH AGENCIES.

    ASK YOURSELF WHY THESE PLACES NEED TO EXIST ANYWAY, WHY CAN’T PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK JUST GO TO PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES AND BE JUDGED ON THEIR SKILLS OR WHATEVER, NOT THEIR INCOME LEVEL. DOES IT MATTER PEOPLE ARE ON EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, WHY DOES THAT MAKE THEM BAD PEOPLE, THEY ARE MOSTLY JUST PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK.
    CALL FOR A ROYAL COMMISSION IN TO THE JOB ACTIVE/DEPARTMENT OF SMALL BUSINESS AND JOBS BUT MOSTLY THEIR ARMY OF RORTERS AND ABUSERS – JOB SEARCH AGENCIES. THIS MUST STOP!!!! THEY MUST BE STOPPED. ASK YOURSELF WHY THESE DESPOTS ARE GIVEN CONTROL OVER PEOPLE IN NEEDS BENEFITS, WHY ARE THE WORST SO CALLED EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES GIVEN THE POWER TO STOP THE PAYMENTS TO PEOPLE IN NEED, AND THIS IS BECAUSE IN ESSENCE THEY MAY NOT BE DOING EVERYTHING TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES, WHICH IS NOW HOW THEY SYSTEM IS SET UP. IS THAT A REASON TO STOP THE ONLY MONEY PEOPLE IN NEED GET – AND WHEN DOING THAT MAKES THEM WORSE OFF, DESTITUTE AND MORE UNEMPLOYABLE.

    DEMAND A ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THE GOVERNMENT FUNDED AND TENDERED JOB SEARCH SECTOR. IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS RORT AND HAS TO BE STOPPED NOW, BEFORE THEY TAKE OVER THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES. WHICH WILL MAKE THIS COUNTRY AS BAD AS A THIRD WORLD DICTATORSHIP THAT ENSLAVES AND BASICALLY KILLS OFF PEOPLE IN NEED OR WHO ARE POOR.

    CALL FOR A ROYAL COMMISSION NOW, AND WHAT IF THEY TAKE OVER DOCS AND AREAS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY WHO CANNOT FIGHT BACK OR THE MONEY MEANT FOR CHILDREN. IT IS AS BAD AS IT GETS AND IS CORRUPTING CENTRELINK EVEN. IT MUST BE STOPPED NOW!!!!

    JOBSEARCH/JOBACTIVE NEED TO STOP MAKING US ANSWERABLE TO THEM – AND THE NEED TO ANSWER TO US.
    WHO PAYS THEM AND WHAT FOR
    WHY ARE THEY GOING TO RURAL AREAS TO FORCE PEOPLE INTO FULL-TIME JOBS WHEN THEY KNOW THERE ARE NO JOBS IN RURAL AREAS.
    WHY ARE PEOPLE BEING FORCED INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE AND ACTIVITIES WHEN OBVIOUSLY THIS TAKES THEM AWAY FROM APPLYING FOR JOBS. A DECENT APPLICATION TAKES AT LEAST A DAY, HOW CAN YOU DO WORK FOR THE DOLE, ATTEND APPOINTMENTS AND LOOK/APPLY FOR UPTO 20 JOBS A MONTH, ESPECIALLY WHEN IN AREAS OUTSIDE A MAIN CBD THERE ARE NOT EVEN 20 JOBS ADVERTISED.
    ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSE TO THEN BE ABLE TO MOVE AND AFFORD PLACES IN THE MAIN CITIES, AFTER MOVING FROM AREAS OUTSIDE THE MAIN CITY WITH NO JOBS. HOW ARE THEY SUPPOSE TO DO THAT THESE DAYS WITH PRICES FOR ACCOMMODATION SO EXPENSIVE NOW IN MAJOR CITIES WHERE THEIR MIGHT BE FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT. MAYBE.
    HOW ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSE TO GO FROM WORK FOR THE DOLE TO FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT IN A MAJOR CITY EVEN IF ALL THE OTHER APPLICANTS THERE ARE WORKING, HAVE IMPRESSIVE JOBS AND QUALIFICATIONS.
    WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO EMPLOY A PERSON WHO HAS DONE WORK FOR THE DOLE AND HAS THAT ON THEIR RESUME, IN ANY JOB LET ALONE A FULL-TIME JOB.
    WE DEMAND ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS.
    WE DEMAND THE JOB SEARCH AGENCIES ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS.
    WHO ARE THEY ANYWAY. WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO TAKE CONTROL OF OUR LIVES AND MAKE UP THEIR OWN RULES – WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED ACCESS TO OUR PRIVATE INFORMATION, THEY ARE JUST EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES AREN’T THEY? WHO ARE THEY, WHERE DO THEY COME FROM. ARE THEY THE WORST OF THE PRIVATE AGENCIES WHO CAN’T GET WORK, BUT CAN GET CONTRACTS WITH OR THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES.
    IF SO WHY ARE THEY BASICALLY ABDUCTING US INTO THIS SYSTEM, WHY CAN WE NOT JUST BE LEFT ALONE TO GO TO SUCCESSFUL EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES. WHY ARE WE FORCED TO GO TO THE WORST JOB AGENCIES THAT CAN ONLY SURVIVE BY GETTING CONTRACT THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES WHO WOULD NOT NO THE FIRST THING ABOUT EMPLOYING PEOPLE IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR OR WHATEVER.
    JOB ACTIVE JOB SEARCH IT SEEMS ARE JUST THE WORST OF THE PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES, IS THIS RIGHT, PEOPLE WHO THEMSELVES CANNOT FIND EMPLOYMENT, AND HAVE TO GO TO THE GOVERNMENT TO GET AN INCOME, BUT THEY HAVE TO SURVIVE BY RIPPING OFF NOT ONLY THE GOVERNMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES BY TELLING THEM THEY ARE DOING A GOOD JOB, BUT ALSO DOING THIS BY ATTACKING AND CONTROLLING VULNERABLE PEOPLE AND BASCIALLY IMPRISONING THEM AND KEEPING THEM DOWN AND SILENT SO THEY CAN MAKE MONEY, TO THEMSELVES BE EMPLOYED.
    IS THAT RIGHT… AND WHAT DO THEY GET PAID FOR, WHO PAYS THEM. IT MUST BE THE GOVERNMENT, THEREFORE THEY ARE NOT A PRIVATE SECTOR, THEY ARE NOT PRIVATE ORGANISATIONS. WHAT DO THEY GET PAID FOR, THEY APPARENTLY GET COMMISSION OR SOMETHING FOR HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY BRUTALLY FORCE INTO WORK FOR THE DOLE OR FULL-TIME RELIANCE ON THEM. THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN DO THIS OR JUSTIFY THIS IS TO MAKE OUT PEOPLE ON THEIR BOOKS, ARE BAD, LAZY, STUPID, OR CRIMINALS AND THEY WILL DO OR SAY ANYTHING TO JUSTIFY KEEPING PEOPLE DOWN AND MAKING THEM LOOK LIKE THIS OR EVEN INTO THIS. IS THAT A JOB
    WE WANT ANSWER AND WE WANT THEM NOW, NOT WHEN THE ELECTION HAPPENS OR WHEN EVER, WE WANT THESE PLACES TO ANSWER TO US, THE UNEMPLOYED, AND TO THE PUBLIC, WHOSE MONEY WE SUSPECT THEY ARE LIVING VERY WELL OFF BY LIVING VERY WELL OFF THE UNEMPLOYED

  83. PROTEST NOW AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ABOUT BOTH SIDES LEAVING PEOPLE TO BE ABUSED BY JOB SERACH AGENCIES – JOB ACTIVE – DO IT NOW PROTEST, EXPOSE JOB SEARCH NOW BEFORE THE ELECTION AND MAKE THEM GET RID OF THEM AS AN ELECTION PROMISE OR YOU WILL PUBLISE RELENTLESSLY ALL THE STORIES ABOUT WHAT JOB SEARCH AND NOW CENTRELINK, NOW CORRUPTED BY JOB ACTIVE JOB SEARCH, TAKING OUT NAMES RELENTLESSLY PUBLISH THIS VILE ABUSE BY JOB SEARCH MAINLY BUT ALSO NEGLIGENCE BY JOB ACTIVE THEY ARE USELESS IDIOTS, AND CENTRELINK ARE FOLLOWING JOB SEARCH ADN NOT SUPPORTING PEOPLE AGAINST JOB ACTIVE AND JOB SEARCH, AS THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO. CENTRELINK ARE SUPPOSE TO BE INDEPENTANT BU THEY ARE GETTING IN WITH JOB ACTIVE ETC. MAKE THEM STOP THIS AND EXPOSE, PROTEST, EXPOSE PROTEST – NOW NOW NOW NOW BEFORE THE ELECTION, MAKE THEM MAKE AND ELECTION PROMISE TO GET RID OF JOB SEARCH AGENCIES, THAT IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN PUTTING UP WELFARE, AS THEY ARE TAKING IT TAKING ALL THE FUNDS MEANT FOR WELFARE. SO WHEN THEY ARE GONE THE BILLIONS THEY COST CAN GO TO NEWSTART, DISABILITIES ETC. JOB SEARCH DO NOTHING BUT DESTROY PEOPLES LIVES AND MAKE MONEY FOR DOING THAT BY KEEPING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED, AND ATTACHED TO THEM, THEY GET BONUSES AND CUDIOUS FOR GETTING AS MANY PEOPLE AS THEY CAN ON TO WORK FOR THE DOLE. THEY ACTIVELY GO TO AREAS OF HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT WHERE THERE ARE NO JOBS, ABUSE PEOPLE FOR NOT HAVING JOBS, ADN THEN FORCE THEM INTO THEIR WHATEVER, WHATEVER THEY CAN MAKE OUT IS SOME SORT OF ACTIVITY, SO THEY GET BONUSES AND CUDIOUS FOR TAKING PEOPLES TIME AND MONEY AWAY FROM JOB SEARCHING, TO DO THEIR ACTIVITIES, AND EVEN TAKE PEOPLE AWAY FROM PART-TIME OR CASUAL WORK OR SELF EMPLOYMENT, THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT ANYWAY, THEY TAKE THEM AWAY FROM THINGS THAT WILL GET PEOPLE WORK OR GIVE THEM THE TIME AND MEANS TO GET WORK, SO THEY CAN KEEP PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED TO GET MORE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES, AND THEY DO NOT CARE.
