That's not true.ObjectsInSpace said:And if you went to uni and had to pay for it, you would be eligible for Youth Allowance. A lot of people I know are on it because we all have to leave home to go to university since it's in Armidale. In fact, most people who leave home for any university get Youth Allowance. Most of mine goes into the $928 I have to pay each month in college fees.
When I went to Melbourne I didn't get youth allowance, its still based on a means test, and my parents earned too much. But I just sucked it up and got a job and before I knew it, I had earned the threshold amount, and got youth allowance halfway through last year. Most people I know who support themselves either get little or no Youth allowance.
I pay over $200 in expenses each week, and earned between $400-600 per week working two jobs.
To the original poster:
Honestly, if you really are paying for everything, and working hard to make money, you'll reach the independent amount. It's like 18 grand, which, over 18 months is just $250 per week. Not hard, really.
You're the lazy one. Stop complaining and start working.
