Scott Morrison needs to realise that the Disability Support Pension actually saves money and lives, by El Gibbs (Sydney Morning Herald). I was encouraged to see an article like this being published by a major newspaper! The author spent twenty years on-and-off the DSP due to an episodic illness – back when the DSP actually was a social security net, allowing recipients to work as they were able to, which in turn facilitated a more permanent return to the workforce as their condition stabilised/improved – unlike the current restrictive conditions. Australia’s record of employing people with disabilities is poor, as is the enforcement of the Disability Discrimination Act. Some very good points here.
