cassieh...you are a sahm atm, right?
I ask again. Why do people care what other people earn???! It makes no sense to me.
I wonder if the (un)employment situation in people's communities influence their view?
For example, in an area with extremely low unemployment, where businesses are closing down because they can't get staff, would the general community presumably look more harshly upon a person who was accessing Centrelink benefits and staying home?
The wa town of Boddington is a fantastic example of this...they created shifts on the mine specifically for parents, I think the shift was 9:30- 2 or something like that. They needed workers and could see an untapped workforce in stay at home parents.
It would be pretty hard for someone to justify accessing Newstart when there are jobs like that available. But in an area with much higher unemployment and less flexible hours there are some people who are probably pretty much unemployable.
I am a bit lost here jf. Why would a sahp be on newstart. That is a payment for someone looking for work not a sahp.
I thought pp said that's what the parenting payments were called once the kids were school age (and that yes, people were supposed to be either studying or actively looking for work to access it)?
That's for single parents. Newstart is for job seekers.
