Cafe owner says he’s bombarded with abuse over his JobSeeker criticism on TV
The owner of a cafe in Dingley Village says he’s been bombarded with abuse after he expressed his frustration on The Today Show about the JobSeeker program.
Adrian Rigotto told Tom Elliott it was hampering his efforts to find staff.
He said he had received “50 plus” applications for work at his business where the applicant asked him to “tick off” the application but not consider them for the role.
Mr Rigotto told Tom Elliott he had always paid “over and above” the award rate but job-hunters simply didn’t want to work.
