Due to the “urgent” nature of the stimulus package, no-one bothered to double check to see if it was fair/would work. According to news.com.au “UP to 340,000 students across Australia are set to pocket a $1850 double bonus from the Federal Government because of a loophole in the national stimulus package.”
Yikes! So yeah it seems as though students that work and entitled to both the payment for students and the payment for workers. I’m not 100% sure on whether this is all true, but if news.com.au says it’s true…it must be! lulz0rz.
