World news – « Crushing Blow »: Lockdown contributes to the problems faced by jobkeepers in the industry

The restaurant industry says the Brisbane lockdown is a « heartbreaking blow to the hospitality industry in southeast Queensland » shortly after JobKeeper ended.

« With school holidays and Easter only days away, the recently announced lockdown could be the final blow to many businesses that have struggled for more than 12 months, » said Wes Lambert, CEO of the Restaurant and Catering Association.

«  This lock is different, however. There is no JobKeeper safety net for these companies, and little to no support will be offered until the lockdown ends.

« This means more employees have resigned, up to $ 50 million in lost sales, nearly $ 15 million in products and inventory thrown away, and more debt is building.

 » R&CA warns governments across the country that business support must continue as long as the lockdown remains an active policy response. « This recent lockdown should expedite all plans for incentives and support from the Queensland and federal governments.

« With one of the busiest tourist periods, this announcement means one thing for thousands of restaurants and cafes across Queensland: chaos. »
