Abbott’s green army will be paid poverty wages

Can unemployed workers and others being conscripted into the green army organise and fight back against this rotten exploitation? Absolutely. Will they? Well, since they aren’t covered by industrial laws, withholding their labour won’t be illegal.
If there were a lead from the ACTU and other unions, perhaps they would take action, supported by other workers industrially and financially. If not, then the downward spiral of wages is likely to accelerate under the impact of Tony Abbott’s slave wage green army.

ACT Labor plans more attacks on its workforce

Katy Gallagher, the ‘leftwing’ ACT Treasurer, has offered public servants pay increases of 4.75% over two years, 2.25% in the first year and 2.5% in the following one. The Reserve Bank predicts inflation (both core and headline) this year will be 2.5% and a little more in 2011. In other words the Government’s revised pay […]

Canberra’s Labor Government to attack its workers

The minority Canberra Labor Government will freeze public service recruitment in response to an $85 million cut in GST revenue. It will not tax the rich; it won’t cut grants and subsidies to business; it won’t reduce its spending on the likes of Al Grassby statues. Instead it will attack its workforce. Left Labor Treasurer Katy […]

Inflation: up or down, core or non-core?

Any wage increase less than 4 percent in the coming year will be a real wage cut. Let unions fight to defend living standards.

Unemployment and the lies of the bosses

There are some eternal laws of capitalism.  The rich will always blame the rest of us for the problems of their system.  Wages are too high they will parrot. We are only trying to save jobs they will lie. The Fair Pay Commission decision to freeze Australia’s minimum wage at $14.31 an hour shows this […]

Cut profits, not wages

The reality for the working class is that to defend jobs and living standards they will have to strike, despite the opposition of Rudd Labor and the ACTU.

Canberra Labor: attacking women, aborigines and workers all in one go

Millionaire footballers are more important to Canberra Labor than poor and aboriginal women and the Government’s own community welfare workers.

What are teachers worth?

Here in Canberra the minority Stanhope Labor Government is urging wage restraint.  It has offered teachers 2 percent next year and 2.5 percent the year after.  These are below the current headline inflation rate (2.7 percent) and core inflation rate (4.1 percent).  Either way the most left wing Government in Australia, propped up by the […]

Commonwealth Bank cuts workers’ wages

Commonwealth Bank management salary cuts are tokenistic posturing aimed at convincing staff to accept a real wage cut.

Is this 1929 or 1989, or both?

Every strike contains the seeds of revolution. Therein lies our hope and our future.
