& # 39; I will supplement them & # 39 ;: Barnaby Joyce's father-in-law offers him money after he said he was struggling to make a living with $ 211,000 a year
- Barnaby Joyce said he is struggling to make ends meet with his current $ 211,000 salary
- His father-in-law Peter Campion offered to lend money to relatives to help them
- Joyce said he was broke and led him to raise for the Newstart benefit
Barnaby Joyce's father-in-law offered to lend him some money after he said he was struggling to support his two families for $ 211,000 a year.
The former Deputy Prime Minister revealed this week that he is slaughtering his own sheep, rarely eating with partner Vikki Campion, and turning off his heating during the cold winter nights in the New South Wales countryside.
And now his father-in-law has offered Peter Campion to help the family after hearing about their struggles.
& # 39; If they are short, we can supplement them, & # 39; he said Cairns Post.
& # 39; But I think they make it. I think they will survive. & # 39;

Mr. Campion said his son-in-law is working too hard and has asked his daughter to take a step back so that they can sit together and he can help & # 39; make his life good & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Barnaby does more away from home than a FIFO employee and gets paid less.
& # 39; I really want to sit down with my son-in-law and restore his life. & # 39;
Mr Joyce talked about his struggles and came forward and called for an increase in the Newstart benefit with a special focus on that in regional areas.
& # 39; I don't cry in my beer because there are thousands, thousands do it much harder than I do … It's not that I don't get any money, it's just that it is spread so thinly, & # 39; he said Courier Mail.
& # 39; I'm just saying that these circumstances have made me more attuned to each other … it's just a great exercise in humility, ranging from Deputy Prime Minister to watching every dollar you get.
& # 39; So the big sensation of the day to be honest is a cup of coffee. We (he and Vikki) seldom or never go out to dinner. & # 39;

However, he still agrees with Scott Morrison's assessment that the best form of well-being was a job, but it was not always that simple.
Morrison quickly concluded the idea of increasing unemployment benefits, despite increasing calls from the crossbank, economists and business groups.
& # 39; The latest job figures showed more than 20,000 extra full-time jobs, & # 39; said Morrison.
& # 39; That's good news. That's great news! More jobs! How good are more jobs? & # 39;
The latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows a net increase of just 500 jobs for the month of June.
