Malcolm Turnbull against Sally McManus

Image may contain: one or more people and text

As Unions Australia say:

When corporate power and greed is so out of control.

When union members are hounded by a spiteful government.

When our pay is cut and our safety net torn apart.

When workers are dying.

It’s time to resist.

SHARE if you think it’s time for fairness again.


Or as Jenna Price puts it in today’s Fairfax newspapers:

‘Of all the pathetic jellyfish representing us in Federal Parliament right now, Malcolm Turnbull must be the worst.

‘Last Friday, His Spinelessness said he couldn’t work with the ACTU’s new secretary, Sally McManus, after she told the ABC on Wednesday it was OK to stand up to unfair laws.’

Her recommendation?  ‘Join a union. At least they stand up.’

I think there is a lot of support for Sally McManus and her view that workers should rebel against unfair laws. Now I am waiting for her to put her money where her mouth is.
