Increased jobs lost over coronavirus pandemic last week

The closure of many non-essential businesses in Australia led to people losing their jobs overnight. Many of these people are casual workers and don’t have leave entitlements. Amongst these businesses were pubs, cinemas, gyms, entertainment venues, and beauty and personal care services (excluding hairdressers and barbers).

We also saw large retailers closing their doors due to lack of customers which led to more people losing their jobs.

The Sydney Morning Herald Sun wrote: “The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent economic shutdown will see more than 1 million Australians lose their jobs by November; new analysis suggests.

Westpac economist Bill Evans revised his forecast for the unemployment rate to now surge to 11.1% and could hit 12% by mid-year.

Hiring is still continuing…..
