It's the fight that has the community split. Who deserves an extra $50 a week — pensioners or dole recipients?
A decade ago there was only an $11 difference between the age pension and the dole, but the pension has increased by nearly 80 percent in the last 10 years.
Most welfare recipients live below the poverty line, which sits at $470 a week.
Aged pensioners receive $348, while those on the dole get $245 each week — so who deserves more money?
