Gen Y dole ban
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has confirmed that the Coalition is considering a scheme which could deny the dole to people under 30.
[quote]"There has got to be a system that encourages people to take up work where that work is available.
"I did notice my friend Warren Mundine suggesting some time ago that in areas where unskilled labour is demand that the dole shouldn't be paid and I think that's the sort of measure that we should be debating in this country."[/quote]
I would have thought that under the present system that people should have to apply for jobs to be eligable for the dole.
I agree that if work is available and the dole applicant does not apply, particularly where it is unskilled work, then the dole should not be paid to that person. But that should apply to those over 30 also.
We all know that there are dole bludgers aplenty and that problem needs addressing.
