There should be gaol sentences for both VIC and NSW premiers for abusing their position of power, manslaughter and
deliberately ignoring the WHO's medical directives. They both had been advised not to open borders just before the school holidays,
which has now cost many lives and hundreds of new infections every day.

VIC and NSW didn't close their borders to each other until 2 weeks ago

They should have been closed way back in March, when this whole crap started, along with stopping all inbound international flights as well.
The government's trying to make themselves look good by giving every cunt lollie money but are too gutless to make the
big decisions which would have saved many lives and stop the spread of this virus in its tracks.

I agree. These government pricks should be thrown in the slot. Someone needs to carry the can on this one and stop blaming the Chinks and the Yanks.

"Staff travelling to work who do not have a permit from midnight tonight will face a penalty up to $19,826, while the business can be fined up to $99,132.
This is in addition to on-the-spot fines of $1652 for individuals and $9913 for businesses."

Why the odd amounts? $20,000 and $100,000 would make more sense.

(all numbers/years below are made up, just a description of structure)

It's all to do with penalty points. Let's imagine that 1 penalty point started at $5 in 1990. Over years of inflation, let's say they're now $14.62 per penalty point. More penalty points = more severe penalty.

So eg
Breaking the speed limit by 15-25km/h might be 20 penalty points, or a $292.40 fine
Littering might be 5 penalty points, or $73.10 fine.
If activity X attracts 400 penalty points, that's now a fine of $5,848, etc.

It's much the same way that government job wages are in weird ranges; it would've probably started out that mid level manager gets $10,000-15,000pa which was probably 20 * minimum wage or something.

After 30 years of inflation, the same "minimum wage units * X" is now $92,815 - 134,179 - etc.

Basically, because government.
