IN THE last quarter of 2008, a significant group of Australians was living below the poverty line. For a single person, this meant living on less than $415.06 a week. These people were working full time ? 40 hours a week, and probably much more. They received no employer superannuation and weren't entitled to concessions or pensions.Who were they? Illegal migrant workers? Sweatshop employees unaware of their rights? No ? they were some of Australia's best and brightest minds: PhD students. (Source)
