April 12, 2007 We had a Coalition Government, we had Work-Choices we had 4.5% unemployment, 276,000 new jobs had been created, and security in our cost of living, it is reasonable to assume the contributions that led to this spectacular growth in employment has been the removal of the unfair dismissal provisions under Work-Choices and legislation allowing workplaces to be ruined by enforced union membership.
However The Unions and ALP, decided to throw all their resources at making Work-Choices a scary Act, and through a constant barrage of lies and actors pretending to be hard done by under Work-Choices managed to put enough fear into the Public to make them think Work-Choices was the Devils creation..
The alternative we now have the Fair Work Act has seen Unions forcing increases in wages, Parliamentarians increasing their raises, Taxes rising for mid to high income workers, Cost of living now using the Space Shuttle, Electricity at a 600% over 5 yrs increase, Employers closing their doors at an alarming rate, business finding it unsustainable to continue in Australia, MP’s who were Union Activists, a growing number of serious allegations of fraudulent behaviour by Senior MP’s ie the PM Julia Gillard, the Speaker Peter Slipper, MP Craig Thomson who has left a stench in the House for 5 yrs so far and is currently awaiting charges by the Victorian Police. just to start. Already they were forced to despatch Belinda Neil after she threatened restaurant staff, attacked the ex lover of her husband, and had a reputation for rough play during soccer. and this list has continued with this Government. where unemployment is between 5.2 and 5.8 %. Job creation is non existent as there are more jobs being lost in Australian business than there are jobs being created by overseas companies.
This Government increased the Public service size to reduce unemployment, however, the poor decisions in regard green programme funding, infrastructure, tax increases and money spent overseas has led us to a record debt of $230,278,230,500 and stuck with a Government that wins arguments through bullying rather than policy, and lies constantly to strengthen their position, particularly to overseas Countries.
And it is Work Choices that that have left a sour taste in peoples mouths, maybe these people need to start looking at the facts instead of listening to The Left.
