Australia will give women “affected by the pandemic” $5000 – Males with their male privilege will get nothing
Women in New South Wales who have found themselves unemployed due to the pandemic will be offered back-to-work grants of up to $5000.
The payments have been handed down as part of this year’s NSW Budget which comes after coronavirus impacted employment with workers losing jobs across several industries.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the grants for NSW women on Monday as part of a $10 million Return to Work program.
“These grants will help women whose employment has been affected by COVID-19 to overcome some of the obstacles in returning to the workforce,” she said.
“I encourage women from all walks of life to apply for these grants and use this springboard to jump back into their former career, or even start a new one.”
