    The Warehouse is considered an 'essential service'....those beneficiaries have to have somewhere to spend their extra 4 billion I guess.

    Was in my local Warehouse just now and asked if they would be open to sell bread and milk etc. She said yes but they have no bread and milk and can't get any.

    What money?
    My brother gets supported living, with his $24 accommodation supplement, he pays $168 a week board.
    Because he gets the accommodation thing, and ALL beneficiaries getting it, or Temporary Support or any other extra help have that $25 payment deducted it off that.
    So the net result is he gets nothing extra at all.

    The Supported living and his $24 means he gets $290 a week. Oh wow, like he's so rich. Its partly why I am here, he sure can't afford to stay here when my mum dies.

    He is nearly blind now too, and with his other disabilities....

    He does not smoke, does not drink and sure doesn't spend anything.
    he sits at home mostly on his PC playing Second Life and reading sites, which good on him, soon he won't be able to see it.

    "Essential services"

    Why is Booze an essential service ?
    And yet IT support , carpenters , car mechanics arnt ?
    So if you cant work from home because the Head Office server/network is down , or you cant get you roof/window fixed & its raining , at least you can still get drunk .
    Car not working, take the bus & risk infection is better than having it fixed it seems .
