In July, the main employment service provider jobActive will be replaced by a new system called Workforce Australia. The move will affect more than 700,000 Australians on low income. 

The new system will require jobseekers to complete their mutual obligations on a Point Based Activity System, confusing jobseekers about the aim of them. 

Advocates also say this is a punitive way for jobseekers and low incomers to survive.
