Are we being treated like human beings by our Corporate Captains? Have they heard of the word 'compassion' or is greed the guiding light for them?

Written by 21 year old woman.

Written by a 21 year old female........or so they say!!

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living"

This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It's her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare system that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

Put me in charge . . ..

Put me in charge of Centrelink payments. I'd get rid of cash payments and provide vouchers for 50kg bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese, basic sanitary items and all the powdered milk you can use.
If you want steak, burgers, takeaway and junk food, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicare. The first thing I'd do is to get women to have birth control implants.
Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce, use drugs, drink alcohol or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in military barracks?
You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair.
Your "home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried.
If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

Put me in charge of compulsory job search. You will either search for employment each week no matter what the job or you will report for community work.
This may be clearing the roadways and open spaces of rubbish, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.
We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your dooff dooff stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”

Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realise that all of the above is voluntary.
If you want our hard earned cash and housing assistance, accept our rules..
Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin someones "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards those for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Centrelink income you no longer have the right to VOTE!
For you to vote would be a conflict of interest..... If you want to vote, then get a job.

Now, if you have the guts - PASS IT ON...

Very hard to disagree with this young ladies rationale or ethics. The idea of Centrelink payments is not to establish a lifestyle, but to assist people get a job. When I was young, anyone on welfare was generally considered to be a "dole bludger". These days, it seems to be a perfectly acceptable life choice.

The current problem with that is that jobs are as hard as hens teeth to get.....employers cannot take just anyone without some previous experience or at least show intention to succeed. Presentation at the interview is a trial to those who lack confidence and there should be way to include some friendly assistance on how to present themselves as an intelligent person wishing to succeed in business.

Lay offs are rife during the "recession" and misery is the result.

At 21 she still has a lot to learn about the world, especially if she has been one of the fortunate ones.

I believe that some of her ideas are full of good reasoning. Unfortunately, as has been said, it isn't quite as easy as she pointed out.
Jobs are still pretty rare unless you have a Uni degree or are mid 20's.

I think something similar did the Internet a few years ago. We all had a good laugh and nothing happened anyway!
