president trump wants all students back in class after the summer holidays despite fears the white house has blocked the center for disease control and prevention from the. testifying to congress on the issue and it is leading to teaches and rival democratic politicians to sound the alarm. when he says open he means open for kids being able to attend each and every day at their school either science should not stand in the way of various past the country nks step people are reporting to us about the anxiety they have about their chilled the decision to whether as to whether to send their children to school for me i think one of the core principles is your parents need to have the ability to opt for the type of learning that they think's important so over here it is who are you. who are your to your kids going through this way to school your kids go to the 1st well
12:20 pm

12:22 pm
special needs son to have a chance to not fall farther behind he wants parents to have their kids back in school so they don't have the burden of daycare or hiring tutors to take care of them and they can go to work again the idea that this disease shut down is silly i think right now the new york city is talking about a kind of land where they where you would have the kids are today. or any. of the. whole earth. or. you know really is there and. i think you know me. now unemployment is all in a stroller is running at a 22 year high but experts there a baffled as to why it's not coming back down as the country tries to reopen one
12:23 pm
theory is extra welfare payments are actually making people think they are better off at home we spoke to a motel owner who explained the dire lemma. a stroke it's been pretty difficult because it's. at a point where we were following it very hard to get employees and the employees more or less staying at home because the getting paid not to a person that just washing dishes for 2 hours a week has gone up to $750.00 a week automatically bill a few comments different ople sewing it's not worth their while working. speaking to recruit millay to see this signing that they hope it will in the books they don't want to work those out of work during the crisis have been getting extra support payments but that is due to end in september in part because they'd is also suspecting that people are starting to rely on it too much we're going to
12:24 pm
a lot of anecdotal feedback from small businesses even large businesses where some of them are finding it hard to get people to come and take shifts because they're on these higher levels of payment but the prime minister's remarks haven't gone down well on social media where he has been accused of being selective with the facts. 100 percent of the anecdotal evidence has been from a liberal politician who owns pubs and a regular survey where the same group of cranks always say the same thing workers are bad cut wages bosses a call this is not a sound basis for policy making implores flooded with job publications despite job seeker bonus the skill scott morrison and piece claims that people were too comfortable to look for work because of the job seekers increase the b.m.a. using fake news for political gain well officially nearly a 1000000 australians are out of work at the moment that's around 7 percent of the workforce but it's thought these statistics don't reveal the full picture
12:25 pm
especially among younger and lower paid workers businessmen john nixon again believes that does need to be a change from support to getting people back into the workplace. we rely on this. scale of work were it might be somebody coming and washing dishes or. waiting waiting on tables and you know that it's a. it's a it's a low income it's quite a bit since the government's putting too much money. to the people who are. without work all supposed to be without work there has been no back up support where the government has given grants to small business but the grants don't really go where we we need people to work to grow business and open the economy up so if we can't open economy up in there's no point really.

12:28 pm
solutions like just switching away from livestock products and eating meat to plant based diets we need to think more carefully and we need to be able to differentiate between the other ones which are part of the solution and those which are part of the problem they need to. more work and have a conversation with the people who are leading the trail on the transition towards more 'd sustainable food systems see what more they can do their research is is a good idea you know the fact that they're trying to reduce methane and everything is very admirable but the marketing messaging basically in our in your header culture just made us look like a bunch of you know rednecks and hicks that are destroying and putting the planet where the london press come from the research right now is coming our next hour so are you going to be shepherding tons upon tons of london for asked city carol because it seems by power kind of the contradictory to the idea of reducing our
