Having gone through the Ansett demise and a period of unemployment, the government did a good job with helping ensure the payment of owed wages and benefits. The tax liability was small and I ended up with far more cash in hand than expected.

With % rates near zero, hopefully for many Australians affected by current airlines troubles, there's enough personal funds to sustain until better times.

Even as an employee of AN, at the time, I did not feel it right AN was propped up by taxpayers funds. Those funds would soon be far better spent on our War of Terror throughout the Middle East.
