Australia’s Shame

Workers  penalities cut, benfits,cut, all by “independant” bodies. Billionaire’s wealth gain in 2019 up 20%.  Australian labour is still waiting for a 3% lift. The Highest paid OECD leader is Morrison and gets $11,000 more for managing 24 mill people with an economy that’s tanking but telling us “the fundamentals are good”. They justify their wage boost on the basis of attracting the most “talented”. The most “talented” were Abbott, Dutton, Joyce, Cash, Abetz, Christenson, Andrews, Hansen, etc etc etc. In Australia’s recent past the most” talented” have been recognized not by people in the country but outside Wayne Swan was the current government has been bagging him ever since. Why is that? The ALP is challenging them to boost now not 2022 or 2024. Whose a manager of reality and whose a manager of fairy floss. Australia you’ve been scammed (ODT)

Key points:

Minimum pay for federal politicians set to surpass $211,000 thanks to 2 per cent increase
Scott Morrison’s prime ministerial pay to grow $11,000 to more than $549,000
New Labor leader Anthony Albanese will take home around $390,000
