    Yes you're right. I was thinking of the effect of no doles available for the age group that seems to be increasingly unemployed and what that might mean for the streets we live in. I failed to mention that which was the point of that comment.

    I'll go and kick the dog.

    Because the only tool that the Left has in the end is welfare. It's the solution to everything when you haven't got any answers. Welfare put man on the moon and welfare will no doubt bring great prosperity to the nation. I don't know what cutting welfare will do. But I do know what continuing to increase it will do.

    :lol: That article highlights why I get annoyed at the lack of basic economics that Guardian authors typically display.

    So how much can be addressed by what neighbourhood these kids are raised in and their parents work ethics? Would be interested to hear other peoples teenage jobs that were less than fabulous. Through college I worked weeknights at a burger bar till 10.30pm and weekend's doing manual labour at a vineyard. My rural parents would donate a trailer full of watermelons to the neighbourhood 10 year olds, we would sit all day in the hot sun to sell roadside and make a few bucks.

    I worked at Maccas for my last 3 years of school. 2 shifts per week.
    During those 3 years, I funded numerous surfs trips to Indo, a trip to the states, ran a car, drank, smoked, and partied. (geeze I miss those years :cool:).
    Then when finished school, took a job with BHP and which was paying less per hour than Maccas for the first 2 years. :eek:
