as a single parent I get 1400 a fortnight,
you get the base rate of parenting payment then ftb goes up by about 60-70 a week per each subsequent child,
so having 4 children you'd average about 800 family tax a/b and about 800 parenting depending on husbands income / if he is getting looking for work etc.
I guess it depends on what you classify as a 'full time paying job' if you're talkinn 40 ish grand a year then yep 4 kids probably would get you that
(note these are rough calculations, Ive not used the calculator but you *Can* use it if you now how much rent a person pays and if both parties work/ dont work etc to figure it out roughly)
they should receive food stamps instead of cash if they're going to waste the money they receive on crap like that.
why should some people who work and pay their taxes and behave self sufficiently have to fund losers like this?
by 'losers like this' are you meaning people who dont behave 'self sufficiently' ? or just those who apparently drink and smoke alot?
taxes go on far more then welfare, welfare is a very, very small part of it, you realize a politician gets easily 2-3x more than someone surviving on welfare alone right?

I'm not going to apologize for my opinions. I can't stand blatantly irresponsible people who choose not to work, pump out child after child they'd have no way of supporting if not for welfare then spend their money on fags and booze.
of course I'm not talking about people who work and elect to spend their discretionary income on cigarettes and drink. they've earned that money and it's theirs to spend as they wish.
