Quoting TG3:" My SO and I both work full time ... we earned $82,000 last financial year and we still need government aid for daycare and school fees."


I work full time and I still need help to pay for daycare. It's outrageous. If I paid for it all myself, I would be in the hole, actually. But without my income, I can't pay all my other bills.



f**king sucks.

Yes. She was banned, so I've heard. But she wanted it that way.

Hmm...
I don't know then. I'm in a couple of chat threads with her and as far and I know she's been banned. But it's possible that info is wrong and she just left.
Did you go to her profile?



ETA: Nope, I clicked and she is gone. :(

She changed her avi to a picture of the site's admin, with a s******a drawn on her arm and shit. She tried to get banned. She was banned from posting to a thread about the new BG, and it pissed her off. She was just done, I think.

yeah I think a lot of people are going to be done with the new changes ... I just have this sinking feeling its going to become the kind of site we're going to have to pay a monthly fee in order to be allowed to post in.

i dont know if its the same in every state, but in CA they dont allow cash aid increases if you have another baby unless the baby was conceived by rape or incest, if you are a minor, if a permanent form of bc failed, or you have been off of cash aid for 2 consecutive months.



they made it so ppl cant keep having kids to deliberately increase their benefits.

It depends on where you live. My tenants probably average about 1800 - 2000 per month.
Making in the 80s in the US would not allow you to qualify for much assistance and perhaps none at all.

They seriously need to do that here too, well everywhere.

Nope, I don't agree with TTC with any of the above going on. I think we should be 100% self sufficient prior to having kids.
I think it is fine to utilize those benefits if someone were to get pregnant by mistake.

I just posted this in the Beta BG thread, but I wouldn't have a problem paying for BG, if it were THIS BG. Not that new shit.

I don't think it's smart but it's none of my buisness. They will be the one struggling, not me.
