Anglicare Australia makes submission to Fair Incentives to Work Bill Inquiry

Anglicare Australia looks at the necessary pre-conditions for this policy to be effective and found that they do not exist concluding that the amendment should not go ahead.
We have called for the Government to withdraw this amendment and repeal the policy given that the major criteria for a successful outcome are not in place, namely: an adequate payment that can sustain a family while they look for work; periods in receipt of the lower payment being of a shorter duration; and opportunities available for people to take up which will provide the means for their ongoing well-being.
