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.

Abolition of the wages system

The aim of socialists is first to cohere and unite and give voice to the class conscious section of the working class around immediate demands and a socialist program of workers’ power. We workers then have a world to win.

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.

Priests, the abuse of kids and state intervention

We invade the Northern Territory to ‘protect’ children. We outlaw bikie gangs for alleged crimes. Why not the same for the Catholic Church?

Can Rugby League survive?

Women under capitalism are oppressed. From low pay to objectification, women are second class citizens.

Democracy is a funny thing

In Canberra the local Labor Party changed its rules to disenfranchise the Community and Public Sector Union.

The bosses’ wage terrorism begins

What an obscenity. The rich and powerful are telling the poorly paid that a wage increase would be bad. Not bad for the poorly paid mind you, but bad for the rich and powerful. Hard to imagine isn’t it – Australia’s CEOs as caring sharing types worried about job losses? Don’t laugh.¬†Evidently they care about […]

Booze, bingeing and bullshit

Let’s get drunk on our power, not their poison.
