There is no other word to describe this family from Nelson. On a benefit after giving up her job at Countdown because the stress of finding a home became too much, while Haskett was a stay-at-home dad, on a benefit through choice.
“We don’t expect to get something for nothing, but things can’t get any worse.
“At the moment the pressure’s on. Ideally we need to find something in Stoke that has at least four bedrooms with a fenced section for the kids and dog to run around.”
Haskett said they had looked at camping ground prices, which ranged from $500 to $600 a week, before pitching their tent in Richmond, but they were too expensive and too far away from the children’s Stoke school.
They are around…there are 173 properties for rent on Trademe in the Nelson area.
The three adults earned a combined income of $1000 a week – Heenan was a student, on a benefit and had a part-time job while Pengelly was also on a benefit after giving up her job at Countdown because the stress of finding a home became too much, while Haskett was a stay-at-home dad.
A combined state funded income of $1000 per week and they are moaning because they might have to be a little cramped.
I fail to see why the taxpayer should fund your lifestyle choices of when you jacked in a job because you felt a bit stressed…that really helped you situation didn’t it?
