So it works out over $20,000 a year.

Plus it's almost impossible to get ahead anymore. Way too many fees to start your own business successfully, hardly any motivation to invest in property. Why would you when you get get government housing overlooking the Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House for $40 a week.

I think sometimes, my life would be way less stressed if I didn't have a job and just stayed in a government house for nothing, and got paid to do nothing. No bills, no worries, nothing. It feels like communism sometimes I swear.

But that's proportionate to your annual income, no? I have heard that Australia's tax rates are insanely high though. I made (past tense because I'm not employed at the moment; going back to school) a pretty decent, above-average salary, though nothing out of this world, and my taxes were less than 1,000 a year.

It's obviously pretty easy for this woman to come out with this, it's partly true as well, but people need help to get them going in the right direction.

As much as she is a right wing lobbyist born into a rich family who wants to become another right wing media magnate

she is also a well known workaholic, a super ambitious person who travelled with her dad to biz seminars form very early age and a very talented decision maker.

Yes, she did have a head start, but she achieved a lot on her own merit as well. Not every rich kid is able to do it, far from it.

it's not true at all.

this lady thinks everyone can become rich by working hard. how in the hell is that possible? she forgets the fact that not everyone inherited billions from their rich daddies so most of us have to work in low to medium paid jobs. nobody is gonna get rich working 8-9 hours a day in a company for 5 days a week but we get enough to get by, get pissed, have fun, and it's alright.

but what's more shocking is the lack of enjoyment she takes out of life. "spend less time drinking or smoking and socializing, and more time working". what's wrong with having fun doing the things you like the most? having to work is fine and all but making it the center of your life can only lead to a sad life, for most people anyhow.

From McSweeney's recent edition. Enjoy!

Quote:
I AM A JOB CREATOR.


BY CHRISTOPHER MAH

- - - -
Do not resent me, for I am a job creator. I generate economic growth using the mountains of wealth, which I worked tirelessly to inherit with my own two hands. Actually, I only had to use one hand, my dominant one, which I used to sign my name on some legal documents granting me ownership of the family estate.

Here are some examples of jobs I have created. Do you see that man over there using sewing scissors to trim those hedges into a 30-foot likeness of me? I created his job, and with the salary I am paying him, he will be able to afford his arthritis medicine and have enough left over to put food on his family’s tree stump. The same goes for the artist who I commissioned to paint a portrait of me, shirtless astride a white stallion, and for the two blond boys I pay to kneel before the portrait wearing white robes and strumming medieval harps when I have female guests.

The maids carefully sweeping up broken glass in the ballroom would not have a job to do if I hadn’t used the chandelier for target practice with my new compound crossbow. The emergency medics would not have a job to do if I hadn’t mistaken my butler for an intruder while shooting at the chandelier. And my butler would not have a job at all if he hadn’t done the funny little dance I asked of him while firing arrows at the ground in front of him during his interview. There are so many people who would not have jobs if it weren’t for me. Sometimes I am so humbled by this that I just have to hug them and whisper, “You’re welcome.”

I create blue-collar jobs, white-collar jobs, all kinds of collar jobs. Dirty jobs, green jobs, hand jobs—you name it, I create it! I even created Steve Jobs. All of this job creation is exhausting, so I employ two Vietnamese virgins to fan me with $100 bills and a midget to fan them with smaller, fake $100 bills. Sometimes I create jobs indirectly by donating to charities like the Republican Party. Come to think of it, I create so many jobs that I should create another one for someone just to count the number of jobs I have created.

I created the job of Personal Food Taster and hired a nice man I think named Norm who tasted my food to check for poison or peanuts, to which I am deathly allergic. I also created a second job for Norm, EpiPen Administrator. One time Norm baked a special chocolate cake for me. When he tasted it, there were no peanuts, but oddly, as soon as I took my first bite, my esophagus swelled shut and I broke out in full-body hives the size of frisbees. Even stranger, when Norm tried to inject the EpiPen into my thigh, it wouldn’t work, so instead he just kept jabbing the needle into my chest over and over while screaming, “Why won’t you die, you devil bastard?” Of course, after this incident I had to fire Norm, but I did hire a new Personal Food Taster & EpiPen Administrator, so really I created four jobs in total.

Some of my critics may say, “Wealth doesn’t trickle down,” but obviously they are stupid and have never seen me in the shower washing myself with tiny, smooth diamonds cut in the shape of water droplets. Although I am wealthy, I like to spread my wealth around by smearing my bagels with gold-dust-infused cream cheese. Sometimes my wealth keeps me warm, like when I wear my Snuggie sewn from loose cash and unicorn hair. Other times, my wealth keeps other people warm, like when I use small bills to light the fireplace for guests.

Creating jobs and helping people make me happy, especially if I get a tax break from it. I know I will not convince everyone to like me, but no matter what, one thing is certain: I have a lot of money.

You seem to have completely missed the point that some lucky people love their work more than anything. So what's wrong with having fun at your worK? How do you know that she doesn't enjoy life? You are comparing your source of enjoyment to hers. Not a good idea.

But people posting here have missed what she really said. She said that if you are envious of rich people then you should work hard and try to join them. If, like most people here apparently, you are not envious of her at all, then she was not referring to you in the first place. She has no problem at all with how much you smoke, drink and socialise.

But you seem to think she was talking to you, so I guess you are one of the jealous ones.

I've been an intern at a consulting company and if I choose to continue working in the field, my salary will likely be something between 50k-70k, depending on which firm I'm able to get employed at. My tax rate will then be around 25-30%

Do you object to Canadians or capitalists, or both?

With you it is more likely the fog in your brain than mist. Just go back to making childlike posts in GM, where you seem to be happy.

Where did you get the statistics to be able to say ''most''? Numbers, please. Or did you just make it up, as usual?

I don't think it's a fair proportion at all. Out of every $90 I earn I lose more than $20 to the government. Plus I live in a rural area, not a capital city, which means my community sees probably less than %1 of that money. It's just frustrating. My entire community's economy runs from mining - so lots of people here pay huge tax - and we drive on the worst roads, our schools are forgotten, no infrastructure. We just fund cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to look beautiful and of course, the lazy people.

Even though I'm all kinds of mad and pressed, I'm happy you escaped the tax man
