    Blaming Centrelink payments?


    Under the current system, a single parent with four children who did not work and was not receiving child support income could receive more than $50,000 a year from the government, the equivalent of someone earning $65,000 a year before tax, such as a full-time teacher, nurse or entry-level public servant.

    A single parent with four children aged 13, 10, seven and four years, who paid $400 a week in rent without any employment income or child support, would receive a basic parenting payment of $738.50 a fortnight, along with an energy supplement of $12 a fortnight and a pharmaceutical allowance of $6.20 fortnight.

    This provides a base payment of $19,728 a year, which would then be augmented by family tax benefits A and B, further supplements for each child and rent assistance, which would pay an extra $32,331 a year.

    Finally, energy supplements for each child receiving family tax benefits would total an additional $463 a year, bringing the total take-home pay to $52,523.

    The Sudanese family settled in Melbourne and her eldest son has been imprisoned for gang activity. The family arrived as refugees from war-torn Sudan and refugees generally fail to assimilate due to the lack of education and wealth, compared to legitimate immigrants who passed the immigration test. You can never know what the family was doing in Sudan and some of these Sudanese refugees may have been associated with terrorist groups. Sudan is now designated as state sponsors of terrorism along with North Korea, from where any immigrants are banned from entering the US.
