The union movement warned the Government of Prime Minister Tony Abbott that it was on borrowed time
Australia’s trade unions sent a thundering message of dissent against the national conservative Coalition Government’s anti-worker agenda on March 4 when over 100,000 people loudly marched through streets across the nation.
The union movement warned the Government of Prime Minister Tony Abbott that it was on borrowed time.
“We are people, not cogs in an economic wheel.”
Worshipping broad economic growth as the measure of progress has masked the growing inequality and narrowing access to skilled jobs that is quietly dragging Australia down, according to a leading unionist.
Meredith Hammat UnionsWA secretary believes that behind the picture of an affluent nation that Australia presents to the world is an undercurrent of narrowing opportunity for younger people, particularly women, from middle and lower income families.
