Yes They pay something like $0.50 to $1.00 per hour. It is not enough to live on. Yes. They can also collect welfare which you can live on, but not well, especially with a child. The child would have full status for work and healthcare if she has a visa. I don't know. More like 90%. Senior roles in the Sea Org are Aussies. Taiwanese are used for EPF and handing out flyers. Not sure who does the auditing. None of the stories mention if she is on a work VISA, however if they say he is Taiwanese, which indicates he is not a Australian citizen which indicates she is on some sort of religious work VISA. In this case, after any jail sentence he would be deported. Not sure if she would be deported too. If he is deemed mentally unfit, he may be placed under psychiatric care instead. There are pretty much no options which look good for the family.
