Hey do you benefit bashers have any idea what your cruel, demeaning comments can do.

Trust has gone, self esteem depleted. But I understand now...you just don't care. God bless

@ROY 100% aggre with you I am only getting a student allowence of under 180 p/w, however if you contune to nag employers and keep filling out app forms EVERYDAY!! You WILL find a job. I did this and got a job in under 3 weeks! My nabours have 4 kids and she and he get the DPB and every payday I see them come back from town with 2 bags of shopping and 4 bags of alcohol, and I smelled cannabis most nights. That is where most of the benefit money goes, to the liqour stores and drug dealers, and not for there kids, witch is what the DPB is for!!! Stop the money side and only have the WINZ payment cards, topped up every week with the amount you get so you can only spend it on food and other things kids need.
