Joel Fitzgibbon is worried about his poor $140K pa constituents | Wednesday 27 March 2013

mo moneyPoor Joel Fitzgibbon is worried that some of his constituents could be adversely affected by a potential new government tax on superannuation for high earners.

That’s fair enough, I mean, these constituents are probably doing it tough. Salt of the earth, and all that.

”In Sydney’s west you can be on a quarter of a million dollars family income a year and you’re still struggling,” Mr Fitzgibbon told Fairfax Media.

”Coal miners in my electorate earning 100, 120, 130, 140 thousand dollars a year are not wealthy.”

Oh. Oh, okay. But Joel’s not completely against the idea of taxing the “very very very high end”, but just not those “ordinary people” earning up to a quarter million dollars per year.
