Anti-Poverty Network SA added an event. ... See MoreSee Less

Launch Party For Group HQ

October 1, 2016, 5:30pm - October 1, 2016, 8:00pm

For the next six months, Anti-Poverty Network SA will have its own house!! We will be using the space for advocacy, meetings, training, social events, and other activities. We will be inviting welfare recipients to visit if they want advice, support, or simply someone to vent to. The house will initially be open for two or three days every week, though we hope to expand opening hours later on. In the meantime, we invite you to join us as we celebrate having our own physical base in town. Feel free to bring some food to share.

According to Social Services Minister Christian Porter:

- Calling for Newstart, which has not be raised in real terms for over two decades, to be increased, shows a "lack of imagination";
- But forcing unemployed people (unemployed because of a lack of jobs) to participate in punishing, unfair schemes like Income Management and Work For The Dole, policies that government evaluations have repeatedly shown to be failures, does not???

WHO IS COMING TO THIS TOMORROW? :-)

Feel like your job network mistreats you? Unfairly breaches you? Does not give you enough notice of appointments? Never lets you reschedule? Wastes your time? Then this event is for you.

We will be Skyping with Owen Bennett from the Australian Unemployed Workers Union, who wrote the Unemployed Workers Rights Guide. This is a terrific booklet that will help job-seekers, and those who want to advocate for job-seekers (download it here: tinyurl.com/zxdzp9x).

How can we ensure as many job-seekers as possible have access to the Guide? How can we help job-seekers to defend their rights? What opportunities for campaigning are there around job networks?

Come along with your stories, questions, and ideas!!

Less than four weeks until Power To The Poor - Silent No More (Anti-Poverty Week Conference), are you coming? :-)

'What I feel personally affected by, is the stereotype that being poor is something that only applies to those who are uneducated or seemingly 'less intelligent' These are words from someone I no longer call a friend (due to her narrow minded views on a lot of things) "I can't understand why you are unemployed. I mean you're intelligent. Why can't you get a job?" I would hope that by having this conference, can make a small dent in attitudes such as this.' - Tracey.
