Last month the JobKeeper scheme, aimed at subsiding wages for workers whose businesses were shut, was reduced to $1,200 per fortnight for full-time workers and to $750 for people working 20 hours or less per week.
For those keen to get back into work, Daily Mail Australia has found the major companies looking to hire thousands of workers within weeks.
Australia Post is going on a hiring blitz ahead of the Christmas rush, with $4billion estimated to be spend on online purchases this festive season.
'We're looking to employ 4,000 people throughout the next three months to support us through the peak period and throughout the Christmas period to help deliver on the huge demand,' Executive General Manager Sue Davies said earlier this month.
