KRISTIN O’CONNELL AND her colleagues at the Antipoverty Centre are on a mission to break ‘the poverty machine’.

O’Connell talks to No Fibs about pre-budget kite flying, raising the rate and explains what the poverty machine is.

I wish I could say something optimistic on that front. I’m a very cynical person and I feel that a lot of politicians, particularly the ones in the major parties, make decisions for just about everything based on what they think they need to do to gain political advantage.

The idea a $20 a week Jobseeker increase is based on anything other than, I don’t know, maybe, maybe we should do that … … seemingly quite random, quite inconsistent and very incoherent ideas that have been thrown out there around cost of living relief and welfare policy
