I disagree with it (like that's a big surprise to anyone! lol).
While I do understand that some people will be wasting money on plasma's and stuff while their kids are wandering around in worn-out clothes and no shoes and living on a pretty pathetic diet (nutritionally), this happens across the board and is not exclusive to those on a low-income.
The part I COMPLETELY disagree with though, with every part of my being, is removing the right to vote. How ridiculous. A democracy fails to be so if certain members are not allowed to vote simply because they have found themselves in a tough financial position.
FWIW, most people have to "earn" their dole money after a certain point anywhere... after their children are beyond a certain age, after they've been "looking for work," but failed to actually get any after a certain amount of time, etc.
The system isn't perfect, but I do believe it's much better to treat people as adults who can make decisions for themselves, than it is to treat those on a lower income like scum who want to do nothing but bludge. With my ex, I was recieving FTB, he was working 60 hour weeks and I was at home with our 2-year-old. He was an apprentice, hence the need for government support. There was no bludging... it was just that we were unfortunate enough to not be making much money at that point in time. PLENTY of people will be in this situation at some point in their lives... they don't deserve to be treated like criminals for it.
