MemeSlave: Didn't England try this a few hundred years ago?
ariosto: Our government has pretty much given up on trying to find jobs for anyone with a decent education, or working in a creative field. This is the natural result of that.I've had friends with masters degrees and PhDs told that there's no point even looking for work here.
The_Sponge: On a very special episode of "Flight of the Concords".....
ThatBillmanGuy: Some people say that Aussies don't have feelings...
Mantour: as it states: "since then Kiwis receiving the dole have been able to apply for money to migrate to Australia, if they could prove there was a job waiting at their destination."But can they collect the Australian Dole?
My Bologna Has A Maiden Name: Mantour: Dumb question:If New Zealand and Australia are 2 sovereign countries, then why can a Kiwi collect Australian Dole money, since he did not contribute to it through taxes or deductions?The same way the mexicans that sneak into the US get all the benefits that I pay for without contributing a damned thing themselves. Socialism.
MrHappyRotter: ThatBillmanGuy: Some people say that Aussies don't have feelings...We have feelings.
thisispete: The average Kiwi living in Australia pays more in tax than the average Australian and gets far less in return.
gaspode: thisispete:The average Kiwi living in Australia pays more in tax than the average Australian and gets far less in return.And yet Australians continue to believe their lying shiatbag politicians who use kiwis as scapegoats to deflect from their own failures. Sad really
starsrift: Australia's pretty hungry for employees right now, so this makes a lot of sense.
Mantour: Dumb question:If New Zealand and Australia are 2 sovereign countries, then why can a Kiwi collect Australian Dole money, since he did not contribute to it through taxes or deductions?
andrewmoriarty: Fyi, nobody blames the Kiwis for anything, we're family. Kiwis are our smaller, less successful cousins (and more boring). Sad really.
WhippingBoy: Canada is planning to do the same thing with the United States...
maddermaxx: Just because some right wing derpers and Murdoch's News.com.au are trying to find some ways to Americanise the country's politics is no reason to blame the rest of us.
