Pensions

Disability, Carers payment are one of the biggest issues that I see on facebook on various sites and groups. They are well below minimum wage, the criteria is difficult to meet and the whole process confusing which doesn't help if you are mentally disabled. Carers save the government money in doing their jobs and the threshold to get it especially between couples is low and helps to maintain that poverty. Disability pension only allows you to work a minimum set of hours before losing it meaning that it's more likely to result in not working at all. Why are couples disadvantaged more when there is two people and most likely have children to feed. Why are disabled people worth less than the minimum wage and deemed to be a burden to society as a result. Why is the Centrelink system so confusing and hard to navigate?
