The Impact of COVID-19 on the Australian Market can be felt by most industries in Australia in the form of reduced employee working hours, wage cuts, and staff reductions. Estimates show that 41% of jobs are at high risk of being terminated. This is why the Federal Government has introduced the JobKeeper wage subsidy scheme. Numerous industries in Australia have been shut down. Jobs have been terminated, and employees are being asked to take paid, or unpaid leaves as employees cut working hours or impose pay cuts. This will affect consumer spending, home price growth, and wage expectations, especially if the situation continues to worsen.
