While the cost of everything is rising rebates are not increasing and a lot of medical procedures are either not covered by Medicare or even with a rebate they cost a lot of money. Pap tests, the morning after pill and certain scans are not covered by Medicare and there is no concession even if you are unemployed. But you can see a "Counsellor" for free.

The unemployed already have a lot of concessions.
What are the benefits of being a hard working Australian?

The benefit of being employed is that at a minimum you will get more than double the money that you would have to try to live on if you were unemployed.
