Bludger doesn't mean a 'lazy person', it means a person who gets by through other people's work. For example, a person who does no house work for their parents whilst staying at their parents house. Or a person who doesn't contribute to chores in a house shared with mates. Or a person who claims social security payments without attempting to find employment, enter training, or further their education.

Some accuse students of being 'bludgers' as many are on Centrelink (social security) benefits and only appear to do about 10 to 14 hours of contact at uni per week. People forget however, the personal study time that students must contribute to pass courses.

A person who is inherently lazy, but by their own means, is not a 'bludger', but would more likely be described as a slacker, or 'lucky prick'.

Bludger Australian slang[edit]

No its not slang, its a form of oppression used to make people without the ability to work go and commit suicide, those whom use such terms are generally attempting to incite suicides in the community.

'dole bludger' stereotype is a myth portrayed by the well-off (those with jobs) against the metal health of those in less fortunate positions of power. Another bit of slang used by such is 'no better dignitary then a job'.

Whats missing from wikipedia is a tally of people committing suicides after they have been somewhat 'brain washed' by the media, political parties, and the community whom endorse such statements with little or no realisation of the harm such statements have caused. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.18.91.167 (talk) 13:20, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
