While persons receiving a $39 a day Newstart Allowance, are expected to live on this amount, it is interesting to note that those telling them to get a job would spend that or more on a manicure.
Imagine if life was something you could buy, the rich would live and the poor would die.
These forgotten people have a right to live a decent life, they are Australians too.
The safety valves of the system are not working for these people.
More direct action may be required, such as civil unrest and other tactics, to suit the requirements of the day.
The poor are put on this planet to make the rich richer.
