There has been much praise for the Morrison government, and its recession busting 'Jobkeeper' program, realistically how successful has this very costly program been. On average 18 businesses a day are being investigated for alleged exploitation of employees under the scheme. With many workers fearful of the consequences should they complain, that number could well be the tip of the iceberg. The main allegations centre around employers not passing on the full amount paid by the taxpayer. Up until July Fair Work had resolved over 400 complaints, and recovered over $58,000 in unpaid monies for workers. Hundreds more complains are yet to be resolved, despite illegal activity by such a large number of employees not a single prosecution has been forthcoming.

Paul1405,
So, because some who call themselves Australians are ripping off the system, it's Morrison's fault ?
Had he implemented a tougher system you'd have been the very first to bleat unfairness !
How about accusing those Labor voting Public Servants who are entrusted with running that system but let this happen ?
They're the 'unfair' ones in this ! Bleat about them !

wasn't long back that both marxist abc and universities were caught out underpaying their staff. Oh well it means the high priestesses could continue to get their hundreds of thousands a year to spew out blm's and racial politics dogma. None so blind. To think they are all still on the payroll. But Paul will continue to demonise any business contributing something positive to this country.

Let's not forget exploitation BY the workers who are refusing to go back to work because they prefer doing nothing on Jobkeeper.

Hi Paul1405,

You get extremes on both sides.

Some people are doing their bit to try to mitigate the final cost of COVID, going without help that is offered to them and by following restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID while others are doing their best to exploit the situation for any financial gain they can and do not care if they act in a manner than places others at an increased risk of catching or spreading COVID.

I find it interesting that the moment there is a problem the left whinge idiots' answer is to regulate it to the hilt.

If the greens were in government the payments would be so heavily regulated that most employers would have found it easier and cheaper simply to shut up shop and retrench their workforce than take the payments, and those that did qualify would have been able to pay their workers a pittance in 2022.

It is cheaper and better to deal with the cheats than punish everyone just in case.
