Seventy per cent of working Australians have now had ‘a change to their employment’ because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new research by Roy Morgan. Such changes include working from home, having their work hours reduced, or being made redundant. This is based on research conducted during September, and compares to a finding of 67 per cent in July. The biggest impact in September was found in Victoria, where 79 per cent of working Victorians reported that they had had a change to their employment, 10 per cent more than any other state; Victoria was going through its second lockdown at the time.
