The politics is alive and well but the decision to cut penalty rates from our low paid workers shows that we have a Fair Work Commission lacking in empathy and compassion with a belief that it was in someway linked to the government in some nepotistic manner in delivering the decision that it came up with. I am sure, contrary to all beliefs, that it made a mistake to favour the government in an endeavour to reduce their budgetary problems but forgot the workers struggling to make ends meet as they engage in working up to three and four jobs to support their families.
The arguments will continue on and on but no matter how intense they become the LNP Government has just signed its death warrant because in this case the workers will not forget how and who to vote for at the next general Federal Election. Being mean to the worker will have ramifications with a payback of the LNP getting ‘The Royal Order of the Boot.’ With an estimated loss of 21 seats the House will look pretty bare of LNP Members. Including Barnaby who can’t even correctly speak the ‘Queen’s English’ when he gets excited.
