Pauline Hanson has slammed ‘lazy’ Australians who she says take advantage of JobSeeker and JobKeeper payments.
Ms Hansen said she would not support an extension of either of the two payment schemes and wanted them to be reversed quickly once restrictions were relaxed.
“People over 50 fair enough. But others have to get up and start picking fruit and other jobs to be done in this country. There are too many lazy Australians with their hands who think it’s their right, ”said Ms. Hanson Today program on Monday.
The government plans to phase out the $ 1,500 JobKeeper payment before the planned completion of the scheme on September 27 – worth $ 130 billion – to replace it with something less costly.

Ms. Hansen said she personally felt that the Morrison government had done a good job handling the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions, but said we could not afford to continue payments.
“I don’t agree with everything [Mr Morrison] has done with JobKeeper and JobSeeker. I think we will have a huge debt for a long time. It will create a budget deficit that the future generations of this country will have to pay back, “she said.
Ms. Hanson compared the numbers of 1.22 million people who received the new JobSeeker payments of $ 550 per week compared to NewStart, where only 727,000 people received payments of $ 282 per week.
One option being considered to replace the JobKeeper payment is a wage subsidy – as New Zealand has, which gives employers $ 585.80 per week for full-time workers and $ 350 per week for part-time workers.
The JobKeeper scheme is due to expire on September 27, but the prime minister has the option to review and renew or decrease payments before June.
The Queensland politician also punched opposition leader Anthony Albanese after reporting that he would attack Scott Morrison’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic.
As parliament prepares to resume Tuesday’s meeting, Albanians are expected to ignore the two-month bipartisan partnership and launch a series of criticisms of the government.
“Anthony Albanese is irrelevant throughout this conversation, you never heard from him,” said Ms. Hanson.
However, she said that Labor was not receiving any reports at this time and that Mr Albanese had to make a conflict.
The Albanian is expected to raise a number of issues, including the sports fanatic saga and the payments from JobKeeper and JobSeeker, by asking how they can be cut abruptly.
The Auditor General found that the $ 100 million sports scholarship program preferred marginal and targeted seats of the coalition ahead of last year’s federal election.
Mr Albanese said that new material from the Australian National Audit Office suggests that Prime Minister Scott Morrison misled parliament on February 27 when he said he was not involved in the approval of any of the sports exchanges.
Ms. Hanson quoted figures of 1.22 million people on the new JobSeeker payments of $ 550 per week compared to NewStart with only 727,000 people receiving payments of $ 282 per week
