The best internet responses to Joe Hockey's advice for young people.

“Get a good job that pays good money’ is the advice Joe Hockey has for young people who want to buy a house.

Everyone stop what they’re doing.

Joe Hockey has the answer to your financial woes, and it is actually quite simple.

The answer is…. *drumroll*….

“Get a good job that pays good money.”

Yep, that’s it.

Don’t worry about following your dreams, abiding by the law or working to your qualification (or lack of one) — just get a job already, you lazy sods.

Unsurprisingly, Mr Hockey is facing a bit of backlash from the youth of Australia.

Overnight, the hashtag #AdviceForJoe emerged on Twitter — with Australians hitting back at their out-of-touch representative.

More have taken offence at Hockey using tax-payer funds to rent his wife’s house.

But most people are just dumbfounded that he is so utterly clueless.

Proceed with caution, Joe, or this could be your fate…
