That we can have so many poor people in such a vastly wealthy country is obviously a national disgrace, and a product of the rigged economic order that we all live under.

"I'm a 24 year old South Australian and am already forced to live below the poverty line on Newstart for the rest of my life, because I had the misfortune of developing one of the few remaining unrecognised severe diseases left from the age of 20. This means I'm far too sick to even cook, clean, look after myself or work as i used to love doing for the short life I had. I will never be able to afford to buy my own hone or even rent or even be able to physically look after myself or do hobbies, let alone work.

I will not be able to afford to pay my own bills when my mum is no longer around to look after me and have a lot if fear for my lack of future and how I could ever afford to look after myself physically, mentally or financially.

There is very little help financially from government for people who are stuck in lifelong poverty due to severe disease - especially for certain diseases like mine the government continue to ignore research findings on or fund research so there is any treatment available for poorly funded diseases in my lifetime for it to be possible to get out of the poverty cycle."

The government is bludging off the labour of thousands of Carers Payment recipients who basically look after their sick relatives, virtually 24/7, for a measly $450ish per week. ... See MoreSee Less
