I read an article today which stated that the 6 months wait is reduced by 1 month for every year you have previously worked (it didn't specify full time, part time or casual). So if you happen to lose your job but have a decent work history then it wouldn't be quite so bad.
Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with what they are proposing, but if it's not so easy to just sloth your days away on the couch as soon as you leave school, it may encourage kids to try harder at school because they won't be paid for being lazy. A nice thought, but I wish we could find a better way to do it!
