For Indigenous Australians, the concept of a ‘fair go’ is meaningless | Lorena Allam | Australia news | The Guardian

That report found social problems had increased since the introduction of the CDP including:

  • an increase in break-and-enters to steal food, predominantly by children and young people
  • an increase in domestic and family violence
  • an increase in financial coercion and family fighting, and
  • an increase in mental health problems, feelings of shame, depression, sleep deprivation and hunger.

Eighty-three per cent of work for the dole participants in Australia are Indigenous. As a condition of income support, they must engage in up to 20 hours of work for the dole over five days a week. There has been a 740% increase in financial penalties since it replaced the previous remote jobs and communities program in 2015.
