In other countries its termed as welfare though. And terrible terrible socialism . Of course those on welfare deserve the same basic standard of living as those who are not on welfare. I'm also pretty well aware that not being on income support benefits is far better then being on them, most people know this and wish they weren't on them, hence that's why I work and study. I've experienced both ends of the spectrum.
Im also very glad I live in Australia, but tat doesn't mean things can't be improved. As I showed earlier the more supports access and equity EVERY person in Australia receives the more likely they are to be able to contribute more to society. Seems like a no brainier to me.
Also there's nothing wrong with saying something's unfair if it really is unfair. The argument you have used is a great way to silence people and try to shame them. Luckily however it doesn't work on me.
A lot of the people whinging and saying " it's not fair" are in fact those who are lucky enough to not have their main source of income be from centre link. However they are happy taking welfare in other forms. Yet claiming how unfair it is that some people on benefits have the ability or means to get ahead no matter there circumstances.
But hey whatever it takes to feel superior to others I guess.
