Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey has been criticised for saying that people who want to buy their first home should start by getting a highly-paid job. He has also dismissed claims that residential property in Sydney has become unaffordable, arguing that if this were true people would not be buying homes. Australian Council of Social Service CEO Cassandra Goldie and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten are among those who have criticised Hockey.
