Scott Morrison: leave Macca’s bludgers Amy and Ashleigh to me, by Jared Owens.
A pair of young welfare recipients from Sydney’s west risk being stripped of their benefits after publicly refusing a job offer from McDonalds, following an intervention from Treasurer Scott Morrison.
The young women — Ashleigh, 21, and Amy 17 — were last week featured in local media saying they were happily jobless and were uninterested in work.
“I would tell you it’s hard to get a job but to be honest I don’t even try. Centrelink pays my rent and that’s all I need,” Ashleigh told The Daily Telegraph.
