Tesch calls for reintroduction of JobKeeper
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is calling on the Federal Government to bring back JobKeeper payments.
"New restrictions introduced today mean all construction must be paused and non-urgent maintenance, including cleaning services and repair work on residential premises is to be paused, adding more financial stress for thousands of local families," she said.
"I have received so many calls today, and since the restrictions began, from people struggling to pay their rent, their mortgage, provide food for their family and keep up with other day to day expenses," Ms Tesch said.
"I want to assure the community that I feel your stress and I am working hard to push this Government to reintroduce JobKeeper."
With the restrictions being the strictest restrictions in NSW since the pandemic began, Ms Tesch said JobKeeper was necessary.
"NSW is reeling from one of the toughest restrictions we have been given to date."
"We need Government support and we need it now.
"I hear you loud and clear and I will keep on representing your voice to this Government to ensure you are given what you and your family deserve."
