The Australian is reporting new figures that show 60% of people on income management are choosing to stay on it. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/people-choosing-income-control/story-fn59niix-1225941970141

Whether they are really “voluntarily” remaining on income management is perhaps debatable. Consider Paddy’s Gibson’s article a few weeks ago about his experience when he accompanied somebody who wanted to remove themselves from the system. http://www.ncca.org.au/files/Natsiec/Racism_as_usual_Paddy_Gibson.pdf

Is it just too hard to get off income management rather than a choice to remain?
