The 200 poorest list

No Right Turn has highlighted, and agreed with, a suggestion by John Darkin that there should be a poor list to match the NBR rich list.

I think this is an excellent idea.

We should highlight the awful case of a family on the DPB with one child, whom don’t even do a single hours paid work. The nasty taxpapyer will starve them on a net income of only $24,810. This equivalent to a gross income of $31,200.

And if they have another child, their net income increases to $31,154. That is ewuivalent to a gross income of $39,552 which is more than the average wage. So if a family doesn’t undertake even an hour of paid work, but has two children, they will earn more than the average wage.

Yep this is the sort of poverty we need to expose.
