    Default Abbott to axe school bonus if he gets in

    What is it with high income earners saying they work so hard, went to uni etc etc. nurses, teachers, police work incredibly hard but are some of the lowest payed workers.

    CCB is means tested. CCR is only if you work or study.

    So now it's all high income earners that say that? A lot of "high income earners" are married to nurses, retail workers and teachers.

    The sweeping generalisations on here make me want to stick a fork in my eye.

    That's what I thought. I didn't get it when my maternity leave ran out.

    I think the bottom line is most people, irrespective of income, work hard and contribute to society.

    Again, I don't think all high income earners are narcissistic jerks. Some give to charity, are thankful for their life and are down to earth. Others think the govt owes them payments bc they pay lots of tax and are quite forward about saying assistance to low income earners should be kept the the bare minimum bc they should just get a job - discounting that many low income earners do in fact work.

    I suppose it's the smaller percentage that ruin it for those that are empathic and thankful

    It's not rudeness it's extreme frustration.
