or look at this way. if the dole is $100,000 , then we are both recieving virtually the same income, i know this is a bit extreme but when think about it, who is to say how much difference it make? i dont know im confused, wats 1 mark anyway?
timmi had a goodish answer, although is the question refering to an "abuse" as timi says, as somthing that creates inequality? i duno, the question does not specify what aspect of inequality it is talking about
