What's Going On?
What is the government doing to this country?????
All prices are on a permanent increase but the wages are on a decrease. Is the government trying to create a continent full of crime? When the lowest of income earners get reduced to a wage resembling the 1940's and start turning to crime to try and make ends meet, and the rich start bringing in the death penalty again, what will happen to the country?
We are doomed to becoming a third world sector if the government doesn't stop this nonsense.
It is unfortunate that our next generation will have children that will be told where they can live and what they are to do during their time away from work.
Its bad enough that our schools were reduced to just high schools and now "secondary colleges" ( whats next? elimentary,etc?), that now we have a massive shortfall of qualified tradespeople.
Thank you to all our politicians for helping to destroy what migrants called "the lucky country.
