Jobseeker to rise by $56 a fortnight but Albanese government unlikely to offer further boost
The Australian jobseeker rate has grown by 17% since May 2022 but remains well below the poverty line.
The jobseeker payment is slated to increase by $56 a fortnight on 20 September, when the $40 a fortnight increase announced in the budget will come into effect, as well as 2.2% indexation for cost of living.
