    with due respect how can everyone get a job if people like you are working 3??
    Probably because of a lack of people like you applying. Sorry to be blunt but really....

    Good for you! But you seem to be missing the whole point of my post - not everyone's circumstances are the same as yours. Not everyone has the ability/capability to do the same as what you do.

    If you got all 4 jobs you applied for there is either a) lots of work available or b) fewer candidates for the employers to choose from.

    When there are literally no jobs, it doesn't matter how qualified, willing, resilient, resourceful you are - there are no jobs. "Thinking outside the box" is not going to solve the issue.

    Do you realise how ridiculous that sounds?

    Yes, I've worked and studied, I've had acreage. Of course I don't know exactly about your life but earning money is a basic necessity of life in the western world. If your life is structured so you can't do that then you need to make changes!
    Not that I need to explain but we would actually need a lot more money should we not live here. We grow our fruit & veges and meat, I have a cow to milk daily and our chooks supply us with eggs. Had I have known we'd end up in this position no I would not have chosen this life. Unfortunately it's not something that we just say oh well it didn't work let's try something different. We have made many sacrifices that save us a lot of money. We have made more than you can possibly imagine. What time of the day do you propose I work? You are totally right I am lazy so I should just get a job from 11:00pm - 5:00am. Who needs sleep anyway.

    Coles and woolies is all done online now so you need to look out for jobs advertised. You no longer just drop your resume into the store and hope for the best.

    coles, woolworths, mcdonalds etc are all done online and have been for years so not sure what your point is there?

    no jobs available in any of them according to online.

    But if you can't afford to maintain your homeschooling, acreage lifestyle then something has to change yes?

    You could work weekends? If the degree isn't going to lead to a job in the next year then defer or cut way back on subjects so you can work nights? When are you planning on working once you've finished your degree?

    Unfortunately the need to earn money sometimes means our lifestyles aren't what we want, it means making hard choices.

    This kind of says it all really. You chose that life, why should centrelink continue to fund it after your children are supposed to be at school? Your circumstances are different and stressful and no one in their right mind would argue that you are lazy. However the payment is there to help while women are out of the work force due to having young kids. Technically once your kids are 6+ you have 8 hours a day you can work-so either go on another payment or unfortunately you and your DH might have to make the decision to change your circumstances regarding schooling or the farm. Somethings gotta give.

    It all makes sense to me. When the youngest is 6 and all children are at school, I wouldn't expect to still be getting this payment

    Default Family Tax Benefit cuts when youngest child is 6

    We did the tree change thing, got the acreage.

    Realised
    A) it's a lot of work
    B) we moved away from our supports
    C) we were travelling really long distances to our jobs
    D) the schooling options weren't great and while the acreage was great for kids the rest of it wasn't

    Solution, sell up at great financial loss to move back to the city.

    At no point did I think it was the governments responsibility to maintain us in that lifestyle!
