Carers targeted by the Liberals22 Jul 2014
Carers are now being targeted so that the Liberals can get their precious budget in the black.
Carers do a lot of work caring for the sick, elderly and disabled. They save the government a huge amount of money by doing the work that Home Care or other such organisations would have to do for the very little pension that they get to do this for their loved one.
Being a carer is hard work and is a 24 hour, 7 day a week job. How can someone who works as a carer also work a 40hour per week job.
The government really hasn't thought this one through very well as send those carers to work will cost the government more money by having to pay for an outside person to take on that carer's role.
