Storyline

Welfare is a 6-part satirical web series that explores the bureaucracy and hypocrisy in Australia's welfare system, and how its rules and regulations lay waste to compassion and common sense. In each episode, a documentary crew follows the good-hearted but illiterate welfare centre boss and his three caseworkers, as they deal with customers from all walks of life. Faced with a wall of red tape, nonsensical public service jargon and well-meaning stupidity, the helpless customers have no choice but to try to cheat the system. If anyone actually receives help in this office, it's not because of the staff, it's in spite of them. In Welfare, no-one really gets what they deserve. We're left to ask: can we no longer think for ourselves? What ever happened to plain old common sense!?
