10000000000000000% they will protect the identity of the anonymous dobber. You will not be allowed to know who, only that you have "failed to meet your obligations". It then becomes a lottery as to which of the 20 applications you did this month was the guilty party.

Unless you walked out of a job after having discovered how shitful it or your management/workmates were.
If they cut a person's payments they MUST substantiate the reasons for it.

They must tell you the reason/s they have stopped/cut your payments. Anonymous tipoff won't stand up at the AAT.

Because it's good for the country, it's good for the kids and it's good for parents. No reason apart from them.
You could debate the "good for the kids thing" big time.
Of course its good for the parents.
And of course, if all the childcare was free, we could give all those underpaid childcare workers a pay rise ( could never happen when parents have to foot the bill ).

Why not have free meals for those annoying little rug rats as well?
Why should they cost something?

QLD Strawberries not really doing much to clean up their reputation as misleading and scummy.
This article advises "Queensland strawberry industry offers $100k cash prize in bid to entice harvest workers".

Until you read the terms and conditions:
*Every week of full time work earns you 100 'points'
*You need to earn 1000 'points' to be eligible to win (you can earn bonus points). You get 1 entry per 1000 points earned.
*Your points are tallied up by the farm and then submitted to someone who tallies them all up
*10 people who have accumulated 1000 points are selected at random to participate for the $100k prize. The draw takes place 14/10/21.
*If you're selected you need to appear at the Sandstone Point Hotel, at 2.30pm AEST on Thursday 21/10/21
*There are 100 strawberries punnets numbered 1-100. Each of the 10 'winners' get to pick 1 of the punnets.
*Only 1 of the 100 punnets contains $100,000. The rest all contain $1,000.

So basically you bust your arse to earn 1000 points, which you then have to make sure your boss submits to the competition. If you're selected you need to then show up at a pub for a 1/100 chance of winning $100k. For anyone who works May-September this would mean having to essentially fly/drive back up to the middle of nowhere to then have a chance at winning. Pathetic.

Because they grow up into taxpayers.

Or would you prefer they just had to pay off the boomer debts and franking credits instead? Why not throw their own costs into the mix?

Look around for the various articles and podcasts on "giveaway breakage".

It's common: advertise massive prize but make it hard for people to collect.

Hoover is a classic example where this failed. Gave away two return flights from UK to USA for every Hoover purchased. People bought their products like mad, then found they were given flights from airports on the other end of the country, among other dodgy practices.

Then after Hoover had to pay out tens of millions under a court order, there were masses of cheap Hoover products, unopened, going second hand so after the giveaway they couldn't sell anything.
