Submission on Cashless Welfare Card

Oct 23, 2020, 08:28 AM by Anglicare Australia

Anglicare Australia calls on the Senate to reject the Cashless Welfare Card Bill in its entirety. It should do so to end the harms being caused in the regions where the card has been imposed. Rejecting the Bill would also send a clear signal to the many thousands of unemployed Australians that the parliament will work to protect their dignity and rights, and focus on keeping them out of poverty, as we work together to recover from this recession.
