Salad, fatty and a minimum wage

Apart from an amusing juxtaposition of pseudonyms this from  Affordable housing at The Standard suggests a lack of appreciation of an affordable state of welfare.

Salad

$15 is NOT a “living wage”.

 fatty

True…but it could be if it was introduced alongside a more ethical tax system, such as the first $27000 earned is tax free, and abolish GST.

Also need free healthcare, free education, food in schools, universal child supplement, state housing etc.

‘Fatty’ could do with considering who is going to provide all the muscle – or maybe they have bought Russel Norman’s money printing proposal.

    Reading the affordable housing link it is quite clear that these people think the govt should be in our lives more, taking more tax from the ‘wealthy’, telling us where to live and what to live in etc etc. They naively think that govt and the bureaucrats know best and will always do what’s best. Those of us who have been around have a less rose-tinted view of life due to experience. These people need to take a reality pill.
