- my job is to clean toilets and guess what with both centrelink benifits and my job i still only just get by!
So once i lose my pension once my kid is 8 i will continue to clean toilets and still not make enough for basic needs like food and shelter.
Its not as simple as get a job. And no we have to be picky
- picky on hours due to lack of childcare
- picky on which jobs pay more so we can feed our kids
And i have seen plenty of places with no jobs, try all the ones i asked if they are hiring. Even the job help centre couldnt find anything in my area at this time.
What will hurt this generation is more kids living in poverty cause of lack of childcare, lack of good paying jobs.
And not to mention iv gone for interviews before and the second i mention kids - bam- interview is over.
Its not that easy! And there are people already doing the crumy jobs that pay crumy money like cleaning toilets i know because that is what my job is!
