    But people want to know if those on the dole are deserving of their $200 and something a week they get to survive off!

    Yes but we all know the job networks are bloody poor anyway.. my brother said he wanted to get started in hair or make up (yes he is very attractive and feminine lol) and in 9 weeks they succeeded in finding him a gardening job and a job at hungry jacks.. pretty soul destroying for him

    Even more reason they should be letting us look for work on our own lol.

    And yep it's definitely 'surviving', I get $569 a fortnight (not $570!) - my rent is $500 a fortnight.

    Yep, definitely not living, barely surviving. I'm sorry you are in this position

    Thanks, it's all good though. Hopefully not much longer and I'll have a job again. We manage to get by somehow.

    One of those ideas which sounds good, but wouldn't actually do diddly squat to combat the drug problem.

    Definitely opposed. It's incredibly degrading

    Oh yeah absolutely agree with this.. it's about time the greater population of Australia realises that people who collect unemployment payments are definitely all using their money to fund illegal drug habits while their feral unbathed children keep missing school, yet somehow manage to pass on all their un-vaccinated germs to the other kids anyway. And while we're at it, why don't we give them all blood tests to make sure their cholesterol levels are good, because we all know that it's mainly dole bludgers who consume vast amounts of fast food, contributing largely to heart disease... so lets just weed them out early and save the tax payers some money that would have been spent on publicly funded medical procedures.

    And while we've got them stuck with a needle in their arm, may as well give all the women a depo-prevora shot at the same time... who wants any more of these little publicly funded children around....

    How can we NOT agree with drug-testing people on the dole!
