I was a student (with a little extra work) with a working partner (part time). My partner earned a couple of dollars extra and I was informed in the mail they wanted a few hundred dollars back (five hundred and somthing I think).

Cant remember the exact numbers but the problem is that I was pushed to spend time working out with my partner how to work no more than a certain amount of hours to avoid the very severe penalty (in the order of hundreds of dollars a week).

Can you imagine a family meeting each week to ensure you make less money?

After a short time we got out of that situation by making more money - but it was pretty stupid anyway.
