exactly, no jobs here and people on Facebook groups (locals/migrants) are battling unemployment. 

You're right, very hard to get a job, just cleaning and hospitality stuffs and uber is very struggled at the moment. I got luck that got a job on my occupation (civil engineering drafter). Rent is very expensive too. Salary very low, I could get a job in Brisbane with  40% higher salary. Townsville I think is worst than Sunshine Coast.... , am I right?

@Skaur I beleive people here always are looking for the grants rather than helping here. I also have a same experience. All members have filled the online application 887 but when I asked for help nobody gave a clear answer

@Akie, sad to hear that you think that way. I believe that many people find this forum when they have already applied some time ago, thinking that they would have received their grant sooner. When that doesn't happen they try to find answers and then they find this forum. So for a lot of people filling out the 887 application and form 80 is already been some time ago. Hence that might be that some might be a bit unsure about answering. Also, heaps of information can be found online on the department website also.

Secondly, please note that every case is different. Being married, single, with kids, without kids, partner that came later onto the 489 visa, which state your in and so on. Nobody can give you the exact answer on many questions. We all give answers out of our own experiences. 

I truly believe that most of us are really trying to help one another so I regret that you feel that way.

The first question back to you is, what level of English does your partner have and which docs can proof that? Did your partner do an IELTS test or has your partner studied in Australia? We need a few more parameters to work with here in order to be able to answer your question.

Here is some explanation for those who work as a uber delivery food driver. You need ABN as you work as a contractor

 

Quote

We have had a number of inquiries around claiming 12 months of work for the 887 visa (which is the PR step for 489 visa holder) where the work is as an Uber driver.

We have received the following policy advice from DHA

"...To meet the work requirement of a Skilled Regional 887 visa, the applicant must demonstrate they have worked 35 hours per week, with this work being full time. Where necessary, a visa 887 applicant may "add together" the hours worked in two part-time or casual positions to meet the full-time work requirement.

For Uber, taxi and food delivery drivers, the department would consider their employment as contractor and self-employed. Evidence provided as part of a visa application would need to show turnover and costs to reflect the client having worked full time for 35 hours per week. This evidence can include, but is not limited to, ATO Tax Notification, fuel and vehicle costs, bank statements, profit/loss statement..."
