We will manage State funding in a manner that will see the disability pension lifted up to minimum wage standards. There is no reason for the allowance of the chronically disabled to be on a par with unemployment benefits, as they cannot help their condition, nor do anything to change it. Unlike unemployment benefits, a disability pension is not designed to be a disincentive.
A society can be judged by how it treats it’s vulnerable...i.e. the aged, infirmed, and disabled. If a society does not treat its vulnerable humanely it becomes inhumane itself. The Rights of the disabled can be easily overlooked in a State if it's own Parliament House, supposedly there to serve the people, does not even cater to the disabled enough to grant them a wheel chair access. There is something wrong with a system of governance when this occurs.
