SA Government provides more support with its Jobs Rescue Package
The SA Government has just released its jobs rescue package. It is now providing a total of $1 billion to support South Australian households and businesses.
Today it added another $650 million to the first support package of $350 million it announced a fortnight ago.
The Federal Government is now providing the most significant support, outside of wartime, for the Australian community and economy and the State Government has followed suit.
The key elements of its second support package are:
- Relief from taxes and charges
- A Business and Jobs Support Fund
- A Community and Jobs Support Fund
- Additional support to recipients of Job Seeker payments from Centrelink who also receive a State Government Cost of Living Concession
