He says he's worked hard to set up his career and wouldn't want to go "degrade" himself to do a job unrelated to his field."If I was to go and work in a cafe or something, I'd just see that as an absolute waste of time," he says.Rosina has five children and receives about $20,000 in family tax benefits a year."I think I'm entitled," she says.
