Cost of JobSeeker Increases.
A $100 rise per fortnight, to the JobSeeker allowance, would cost the Australian taxpayer an extra $3.2 billion per year.
That is according to figures from Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre.
How much is 3.2 billion dollars?
Numbers are often looked at as just numbers with no real meaning, so how much is that as something we can relate to.
Assuming 14 million taxpayers, and if that $3.2 billion was divided equally, that would be about $230 per year for each taxpayer.
