Given that a large majority of students have lost their jobs (previously 0 hours, casual contracts) during term time of term 3, and they have also loss seasonal jobs throughout summer which are often the main source of income for a lot of students. The Government should increase the maintenance loan that students receive, especially in the first term of Uni as many students don't have enough money to pay rent as it is, then with the loss of income from the lack of seasonal work on top of this as well the financial impact on students has been substantial enough to justify an increased loan amount.
