I reckon this will be the the straw that breaks the camels back
If you look at the collective union agreements, the bargaining power gained workers the largest pay rises and the best working conditions.
Then came the AWA's, these have gain workers half the amount of wage rises than what collective agreements achieved.
....and now we have the I.R laws handed down, which have effectively stripped workers of up to 30% of their take home wages.
OK so now we have take home wages on thier way down, house prices in almost all parts of Australia stable or on their way down, global higher interest rates and record fuel prices.
get my drift....care to comment?
