No point com­plain­ing

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

RE: “Cost of liv­ing to hit home,” ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, Au­gust 5).

I pay $570 per week (to rent) in Old Mt Druitt and both my wife and I work full­time.

I also have a Fri­day/Satur­day night job and we are sav­ing for a house de­posit.

We also have $180 per week go­ing on be­fore-and-af­ter-school care, plus $1400 a month on car loans.

If I can do it, there is no rea­son that no one else can’t.

Stop play­ing the ‘I’m from Mt Druitt fid­dle’ and play the ‘I go to work or study to give my­self a bet­ter fu­ture fid­dle’.

I’m not say­ing that ev­ery one in the com­mu­nity is a sponge but there are a lot that are sponges on so­ci­ety.

Maybe (this is a gen­eral point of view) give up the cig­a­rettes, boozy nights out at pub/club and get­ting tatts, and work more than 38 hours per week. TODD BLACKLAWS,
