Paula Bennett talks about the problem with dead-beat dead-beat Dads. Those who are on a benefit and still don’t contribute to their offspring other than an occasional bash.
Ms Bennett said there were men in the benefit system who had fathered numerous children, but they escaped much of the criticism. Some had up to eight children to different mothers – and even if they were employed they could not afford child support.
“We talk about teen mums a lot and yes, they are left with the babies. But you hear of older men with multiple children and they actually prey on young women as well,” Ms Bennett said. “I’m not sure we actually identify that as the problem that it is.”
People who don’t pay for their own children disgust me. We should run the same system as Sheriff joe in Arizona who publishes photos of dead-beat parents.
