    Default Push to increase inadequate dole rejected.

    I wonder what Lillitheo would do if her husband left her and she had no support to assist her with her kids.

    Yep this is about all I could muster for such an arrogant and insensitive reply,
    Lilly I hope if you ever find yourself in the situation that your relationship 'doesn't work out' someone says the exact same nasty, bitter and spiteful words back to you.

    People even questioning why we have to work blows my mind.

    What's the alternative? Sit back and scrape an existence on Government benefits? What a great example to set our kids!

    Touche no, not a lot of people are forgoing their BB, FTB and other payments bc it's costing the tax payer lol

    LMF - Have you done a degree? it's really hard work, with a huge time committment, classes, placements, exams, endless assignments. You expect a single mum with tiny kids to be studying??

    Should SAHP's that are partnered be studying too? since many get FTB they could be considered a burden too. Maybe parents staying home should be studying with babies? I mean they have plenty of time.... since they have so much time maybe a casual or part time job as well?

    This part here especially shows me you don't know much about people's individual stories. Some on single parenting payments had the father of their children pass away. Some have been abused. Some were downright unhappy.

    why should the government pay them to be able to live in a home and eat? Because we aren't like other animals. We don't let our weak and vulnerable starve to death.

    Like you, I do not qualify for FTB or a health care card etc due to household income. do you know what we are? ......lucky.

    Who said that? everyone is saying it's fair to expect all SAHP's to look at doing something with themselves after the youngest is in school. many are pointing out the barriers to why some struggle to make that happen.

    Making it more affordable for people who need it to work, Like the link I posted on child action you get free daycare for x amount of time and as your income increases they slowly wean you off.

    Yes I have done a degree and will be going back to get my 4 year degree soon. I had a newborn when I started my degree. I raised the kids and did a degree was it tough yes it was but manageable lots of late nights. I also had a business I ran while going to school.
