From The Guardian: Australian government won't 'jump to a solution' to help casual workers in coronavirus crisis

Sounds like our government doesn't want to support casual workers and business owners who can't afford to stay home when they get sick with the COVID-19 coronavirus. Reminds me of their bushfire response: instead of spending money up front to mitigate a crisis they'll let it get worse in the hope that might save some money.

Well I reckon we'd be better off spending money now to save some lives instead.
