Youth Allowance

Nola Marino has been a vocal opponent of the Rudd/Gillard government's changes to the Independent Youth Allowance Criteria, that she believes discriminates against young people. Marino believes that "Arbitrary lines on a map now define which students come under which Independent Youth Allowance criteria". [2] The new criteria, Marino believes, forces young people, who live in regional years, to take two gap years, so that they can complete the 18 months work required to get independent youth allowance. Nola Marino campaigns strongly that finding work for this period of time is very difficult in small towns and regional centres.
