FTB B is based on the secondary income - so if one parent works and one is a SAHP then they will receive the maximum FTB B. DP earns over the threshold to receive FTB A but we still get $140pfn FTB B for 2 children.

Um wtf??? Def not poverty. What a whinger

Surely they were being ironic?
Just shows how materialistic and greedy people are getting when 100+k is 'below the poverty line'. I think maybe they need to swap lives with a single mum living off 15k getting no CS and then reassess....
And as to the argument - you don't know what their debts are... urrmm live within your means? it's ridiculous for a middle income family that are keeping up with the jones with debts they *choose* to have, to be actually saying they are poor bc they have to have 'stuff'. Sorry zero sympathy from me.

Pp's had said this, but there is this "middle class poor" mentality in Australia that is kinda nuts.
I have so many friends with large mortgages, car loans for new cars every 5 years, furniture on finance.....
You can earn all the money you want, but if you spend your time trying to keep up with the proverbial Joneses, nothing will ever be enough.
I don't think 100000/y is rich, but it certainly isn't breadline.
