    of course one factory doesn't employ all the workers but they had quite high wages over there and that era is over.

    That has been over for ages. Most of the higher payed long termers have moved on with voluntary redundancies already.

Places like semaphore, bowden, the port or prospect where 10 years ago were considered less desirable are now into the 1.5million dollar mark. When houses in Elizabeth are at 250k and rising you know that it is not looking affordable to buy in the near future here either.
    Seriously? A $120k increase in the Northern Suburbs?

    Our house raised the same in southern suburbs. In 'ghetto'. We just got it valued because we thought we would have to sell. We paid 210 valued 300-320k.

    I'm not saying suffer... I'm saying it would make it fair. And maybe they would realise that the government pay out isn't enough.

    And prices are rising. Even good old dav park is rising beyond many poorer peoples means. Want a rental in dav park? You can be looking at 250 a week and up. The food co-op there is regularly running out of food. There has been a significant increase in overpopulation in the area where multiple families are starting to co-habitate as rental affordability is rising. I personally know 2 families who are moving from the elizabeth area to rural victoria because they can't afford to live there any more.
