    Except when they reject your application every 3 months for 2 years, even rejecting it AFTER you do work experience and the place says you were a good worker ...

    It is good to hear that you do not have a problem with cash in hand work...income is income...not sure mowing or baby sitting counts as a hobby though...not sure Centrelink would feel the same.

    But it's good that you are aware of the legislation...

    Compassion, understanding and insight cannot be engendered through legislation... That's all I need to say....I should have just said that the first time.

I'm sure he would have been a really attractive employee prospect; no hair from chemo, sick as a dog and not sure if he was actually going to live.

    Something is broken with the current system.

    Yes, better to support students throughout their study rather than offer assistance for only part of it, which would mean it was a total waste to begin with for many students as 1. They'd have to leave study, and 2. They will be unemployable in their field due to not having completed their study!

    I just wanted to quietly say that I really think we need to invest in the mother (be it single or partnered) staying home for at least the first 2 years if that means giving financial assistance then so be it. It would do well to increase our breastfeeding rates which would improve the financial demand on our hospitals etc. Once the youngest child reaches school age I do think the SAHP should return to work BUT we need to sort out things like work hours, CC, yadda yadda for some at the moment it is nearly impossible. I know some mining towns are hiring SAHM during school hours to cover workers breaks, it's an awesome scheme which serves both the company and the parents that want school hour jobs. I just wish there were more of them around.

    I think adding $50 a week to increase the dole is in line with the costs of living at the moment, for sure. We have struggled when hubby was made redundant a few years ago we were on newstart and PPP (included FTB and rent assistance) it was a nightmare we had to consolidate our debt to survive (a part 9 debt agreement which has killed my credit rating)- to be able to buy food and pay rent and to cover energy bills. I also think that if people cut down on buying things in credit it would make things easier should hard times hit, learnt this the hard way myself.

    He should have been able to get a temporary disability pension and the his partner should have been able to get a carers pension!
