Shocking on the crisis in the building industry, where it’s open slather for crooks, shonks and incompetents. And why ? Privatisation. Self-regulation. “Cutting red tape.” Governments entirely culpable.

It is impossible to be heard unless you have a voice. We support the call for the establishment of a First Nations Voice in the constitution.

There are thousands of buildings with combustible cladding and structural defects because the government prefers to crack down on unions rather than enforce the construction code.

We have lost faith in privatisation & Liberals rewarding their donors with Government contracts that under perform, cost a bomb & recommend even more contracting out to fatten their profits

BCA Press Conf: Peter: The question I want to ask is, is why would a business pay higher wages if they don’t have to? Jennifer: Well, .. they pay higher wages because the agreement they’ve reached with their union.

As the world’s largest exporter of gas, Australia plans to IMPORT gas. Why? Because we refuse to make foreign gas exporters keep some gas for local use – a standard global practice. A 10% rise in gas prices costs the economy $8.5b. 200k jobs are at stake. A total farce.

New ABS data shows the number of ppl wanting more hours but can't get them has gone up. Now more than 1 million ppl have 2 or more jobs. Yet Scott Morrison says if you are earning less than $200K it's because you are lazy, when really it is laws that allow too many insecure jobs
