Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

Archive for 'unemployment'

Wall Street bonuses back with a vengeance

In a society based on exploitation, a crisis isn’t something that affects all layers of society equally. The bosses will try to make workers pay for their crises.

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.

Is Labor getting ready to go early?

All the tea leaves point to an early election so that Labor can avoid the electoral fallout from rapidly rising unemployment and introduce a horror Budget in 2010.

The Minerals Council: mining bullshit

Employment in the mining industry will double over the next decade. Scaremongering about job losses is so the bosses can get even more money out of us.

Commonwealth Bank cuts workers’ wages

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

Stats sacks staff

According to Satuday’s Canberra Times, the Australian Bureau of Statistics has begun to carry out its decision to sack 180 staff.  This week 31 learned they are going. More will get the boot in the coming weeks. My union, the CPSU, has done nothing but talk. Only mass meetings of all CPSU members to consider indefinite strike […]

Is this 1929 or 1989, or both?

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

Social democracy rules, OK?

Social democratic controlled burning won’t prevent the firestorm of the Great Recession from destroying hundreds of millions of lives across the globe. Rudd Labor will fan the flames.

The Left, internet filtering and missing the point

The Left should encourage and join workers to fight for their jobs and livelihoods, and so help defend and extend our freedoms.
