NSW urged to learn from WYD transport success. It's down the bottom.
So the average wage of a worker in Australia is something like 50k a year, obviously higher in the CBD. World Youth Day lasted about a weak. However the CBD was deserted thanks to traffic fears.

Bart Simpson: But doesn't she get her money from you?
Homer Simpson: And I get my money from grease! What's the problem?
