Dutton's Plan, Remove Workers Rights
May 20th, 2024 at 11:38am
 
Dutton’s plan: remove workers’ rights, drive down wages and rob the next generation of a decent retirement
Media Release - May 16, 2024 ACTU
Peter Dutton has outlined the future for working people under a Coalition Government – more insecure work, reversing improvements in workplace laws that are delivering wage increases, and leaving workers poorer in retirement.   Sad

The ACTU condemns the Opposition Leader for attacking workers’ rights in his speech, and a housing policy that would drive up house prices and raid the superannuation accounts of working people.

The Dutton plan would see a return to workers’ wages stagnating and more insecure jobs.

The Labor Government’s workplace laws – including equal pay, multi-employer bargaining and same job same pay for labour-hire workers – along with their support for lifting minimum wages and aged care workers’ wages, have contributed to higher wage growth for workers, alleviating cost-of-living pressures.

Peter Dutton in his budget reply speech promised to send workers’ wages and rights backwards.

Quotes attributable to ACTU President Michele O’Neil:

“Tonight Peter Dutton committed to getting rid of the workplace laws that are finally seeing real wages grow, after 10 years of wage stagnation by the last Coalition Government.

“Not satisfied to preside over a decade of frozen real wages, Peter Dutton tonight told workers that if he is elected, he will again commit the Coalition to running an economy based on low wages.

“He made it absolutely explicit that he will turn secure jobs into casual jobs.

“Moreover, he has told us tonight he is coming after workers’ superannuation. The Liberals’ policy will not only drive-up house prices but plunge people into poverty in their retirement.

“This is an absurd policy. The median super balance for someone under 25 years old is about $4,000. 

“The Coalition’s policy is a false promise and totally out of touch with the reality of people’s lives.  It will make people poorer in retirement, and will not make housing more affordable, in fact it will have the opposite impact.”

The Libs love attacking workers' rights.

It's what they live for.

Bastards.

Soooooo.... What did Dutton actually say, as distinct from what the ACTUU is blustering and emoting about??

Do you know? Do you care? Probably neither. You are just happy to go along with the blustering and braying comrades no matter what.

Well blow me down.....

...


... why didn't the Libs think of that before???  Move to the Labor/Lib Bi-Partisan Thrust towards the Neo-Feudal New Robber Baron Controlled Medieval Economy and Society direct instead of beating around the bush.... Labor's way is so slow... just go for the pregnant babies in Gaza direct .. get your knee on their throat and they'll soon expire as any viable opposition.... get the bastards into Tent Cities and Future Vertical Slums to make way for people with some REAL money who will raise the price of our shares and our profits from building 'investment' ..... they've all got piggy eyes anyway ...

Brilliant in its simplicity!!!

Poor Fellow - My Country - faced with the choice of these two parties of persecution of the people and pre-dominance by personal pals for profit per patronage.......

I just hope at least my medical bills have 30% or so waste in them .. just to get something back ...

"Lemme see now - where's the front line?  Look around you, kids - we're in New Nazi Land ..the enemy is all around us!"

What "worker's  rights " have been attacked?

"Coming after workers' superannuation " (mostly controlled now by unions) - How?

Companies decide for themselves how they exploit and rip off their workers -

it's got little to do with Peter Dutton.

If he becomes PM, it has everything to do with Dutton.

His Government will be responsible for workplace legislation.

Have you forgotten Howard's WorkChoices?

Cloth-capped waffle.

Unions have a power grip on the Labor party that is totally incommensurate  with the societal significance of unions.

Even if you were right, what is Labor's plan? To keep high wages, and make Australia uncompetitive internationally?

No surprise from Dutton the Liberals have been doing that for decades. Yes Bobby it is the companies who do it but mostly only when liberal legislation allows it.

You infer that it is untrue and then say that you support low wages. Gee why don't you make up your mind?

I said "even if you were right". I did not commit to saying that you were right.
