Im not a very political person, but I just read this new report, saying that Australian Senator Rachel Siewert will spend a week experiencing what it is like to live on unemployment benefits.
Its fantastic to know that there are at least one or two politicians in Australia that want to pull their head out of the sand and see what is really going on in this country.
The Centrelink payments here are a joke. I pay more in rent than my total weekly payment, leaving me to cover ALL other costs with my own life savings which are now nearly gone. Hopefully something good will come of this.
