"Currently Australian minimum wage is $740.78 per week.
If you lost your job due to automation, off-shoring services, company
bankruptcy, a national recession, or any number of reasons that may be
out of your control, as a single person with no children you could
possibly receive $277.85 per week from New Start provided you are able
to jump through all their hoops.
If you have a partner, then you can expect $250.85 per week.
The poverty line in Australia is considered to be $433.00 per week."
