"Labor's Solution to the Water Crisis
"A National Water Summit should be held as soon as practicably possible. It should involve all sides of politics, both Federal and State.
"Collectively, we must work to eliminate the bureaucratic stumbling blocks that have resulted in little or no real progress on water reform. We must be engaged in investigating real solutions to our continuing water crisis."
I used to work at a large supermarket chain in Australia, and they had around 60 casual teenage employees on the books (15 - 18yrs old). Each one of them only got between 3 to 6 hours a week... should that really count to our employment rate when they work one shift a week?
My son has permanent postion with a nation wide auto spares & parts retailer...1 shift per week. WooHoo !!! Big farkin deal !!!
Really young people do not have the experience or skills to bargain and wrangle with employers.
Young people put with crap just to have a job....any job. Exploited to the max

So how are these young people getting exploited by employers have to do with Johny Howards industrial Relations laws that have been introduced compared to when they weren't introduced. I'd like to see an example.
Thought so... Thank you very much! ;-P

Yeah...I am old enough to remember how things were too, and it is much worse for young people. I know it is bad where you live too...I have friends with young people the same age as my youngest sons living near Port and they can't get jobs unless they move away from the town.
With all that growth up in that neck of the woods you'd think there would be more jobs for fit young people (a lot of oldies up there and others who can't work).
Older people and their experience plus memories = primary source of evidence.
