seekingsunshine posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi everyone! thought some family people (especially with young children) might be interested in this comparison! I have recently had my child tax credit/and working tax credit back - telling me I'm now entitled to.......67 pounds a month!!!! I have two children under three, i work (20 hrs) earning minimum wage and my husband is an a contracted electrician - usually working 60 hours a week - earning about 25 grand (after tax) HOWEVER, he is at moment working away (as due to economic crisis there are few jobs local to us) so he has to pay about 120 pounds a wk i just cant believe how much we are being penalised for being married and wanting to be a family! I dont expect the gov to support us, it just annoys me how it doesnt support married couples and/or family units. In contrast after doing a bit of research I've discovered that with my hubbie working full time, me as STAY AT HOME mum and with three kids, we'll be entitled to around $1200 in Australia - because the gov there has a scheme to support families with only one breadwinner, where one parent wants to stay at home!!! WOW! i cannot believe this we're actually not going to be penalised for being a family! i think we need to get on a plane quick, because with rising costs here in the UK we won't be able to survive much longer!!!

Hi, how is Nursing in Australia compared with Nursing in the UK. I work on a busy thoracic ward. Not enough staff same old NHS, but NHS dont want to employ more nurses. Is it any different in Australia as they need nurses, is there the same problem. we seem to have to many pateints to look after. Also is they role of the nurse or nursing in general, any different in Australia.I was hoping nursing in Australia would be better, is this the case.
