My brother in law last week worked approx 50 hours last week as a hardworking early to rise late to
sleep Taxi Driver on the Gold Coast of Australia... he Grossed $ 480.00.
He receives no holiday or sick pay or super, approx four years or so ago a rally was held on the Gold coast in which my Brother in Law and his son attended, it was a rally against the deal described above.

The vocal leader of this rally a war veteran was railroaded out of the industry I was told.
Within a few months of the rally approx 200 indian citizens were imported into Australia and put to work in the extra Taxis the government put on the road after this rally.
No one dares complain anymore.


Yet speaking out about this somehow makes you and me a Racist?

Australia has Sold Out.

I 'm sorry for you. Please keep in mind that this is a worldwide phenomenon and that the world over the first world countries are seeing their wages being third world scale.


This is what my post is about "Wages - Becoming Third World Scale". This is not Racism!!!

As a 14yo back in 1984 I was recieving $500 Dollars a week as a "Jackaroo". I would drive trucks, lay cement, put up fencing ect (Jackaroo = Jack of all Trades) We would work from sunrise till sunset 6 days a week. It was common place for 14, 15, 16 year olds to be doing this type of work in "The Outback" 28 years ago.

Flash forward to 2012 and inflation has skyrocketed, but wages for so called "Unskilled Labour" has gone backwards.

I think it's because immgrants from Third World Countries are willing to work for peanuts. Backpackers are willing to work for Peanuts - and Capitalism thrives on Slavery.

This is not a dig at these people, it's a dig at the Greedy Corporations who will "Work the Willing Horse".


Within a few months of the rally approx 200 indian citizens were imported into Australia and put to work in the extra Taxis the government put on the road after this rally.



I would like to see a source for this, some proof perhaps?

The rest I will get back to later....

Middle of Sydney City, its never totally safe in a big city - but it also comes down to how you carry yourself and street smarts as well. I have never felt unsafe walking any street in Sydney or greater Sydney metro.

Are you scared to walk the streets in Cronulla?

Said the out of touch billionaire that got all her money from Daddy…..

Can’t buy the media (although she has tried and will continue to, so she can manipulate how the media portrays her) and her kids hate her because she believes she is entitled to every cent and they deserve nothing from the will.

I say, if she truly believes her words, give way 99.9% of your fortune and show us how you start from scratch in share accommodation in Mount Driutt and working as a check out chick at Coles.

Yep, I would like to see the out of touch fatty try that, then she can earn respect rather than demand it.

I don't think it is racism in any form and I don't understand where you think I might.. All the world over this occurring not just in Australia... what do you think the never ending supply of Mexican labor has done tot he US working people? ... no meaningful wage increases in 30 years.....

That’s the point, single out and blame world governments and the corporations that feed them– not the people!

As soon as you start blaming a race, or not wanting a certain race of people to enter your country for whatever reason, then its racism and that has been apparent by many throughout this thread.

It’s not their fault that they are willing to work for less; or come from a war-torn nation; they just want to work to support themselves and their families like everyone else and have freedom.

If wages go down, then the cost to live should also go down – it has not reached that point yet, because they are still in the phase of sucking us dry.

Once people are so poor (even more than now) and its unaffordable to purchase a loaf of bread, then you will either have a across the board drop in costs, or civil unrest, or worse depopulation and the NWO if you want to go that far in this line of thinking…..

Q.It is true that Australia adopted the common law system from the UK; this is the key difference we hold over nations "colonised" by code law countries. This has given us our democracy; separation of powers, and that document we know as the constitution. These things most take for granted, but they underpin our identity more than VB and a red motor.
A.That has nothing to do with the original statement which was the indig would have been worse off if the dutch or "JAPANEES" or "GERMS" had colonised Aus before the Brits. So what are u harping on about?


Q.I'm not alarmed. The only boogie man I fear is ignorance and hatred weakly veiled in false nationalism.
A.I am not ignorant nor do I harbour hatred so if u are referring to me u better back it up!


Q.Howabout that nasal drawn out slur that is so typical of the Western Sydney plebs (think: "go wabbidoz")
A.Try reading the post I told u whatever accent you want.


Q.Abbreviation; Derogatory Slur. We can agree to disagree, I will let the reader make their distinction. As to looking foolish, again, lets let the reader draw their own conclusions.
A.Is Aussies a slur to u too, how do u determine which abreviations are ok?


Q.All I could think about regarding German influence on Australia was my Mercedes-Benz I'm restoring; not really of interest to anyone other than myself or other Merc enthusiasts. I'd happily bore you with the inner workings of a K-Jet if you really require something off topic...
A. Be honest at least mate you were fishing so u got selective.


Q.Id say "Lebs" would fit into the derogatory category, also many Americans (from the confederate states) find it derogatory to call them Yanks. Kiwis label themselves as such.
A.I would say depends how u use it. So u have no problem with nigga cause they call themselves that. Jap's offends u but Nigga is fine ok I see your "logic".
Um Leb's call themselves that all the time so u lost me there.



Q.The war ended in 1945 when Japan surrendered to the allied forces--how many years ago was that? or does Australia's more recent history with Japan as a peaceful trading partner not count because we we once at war with them. If you hold onto the anxieties of the past how do you expect to function in the present, let alone adapt to the future?
[A.Not that many that the very people we tasked with killing them are no longer here but hay why don't u try saying that down your local RSL 1 night. Are you deliberately avoiding the Q. Why did we have to apologise to the indig that was 200years ago?
You painted them as though they would do no harm I just showed u the error of your thinking.


Q."Polish them up"? ok, I'll bite. Being that neither the Dutch nor the Germans are nuclear powers; it would follow that the colonial government would not allow neuclear testing from its former colonial power. Or did the nuking of the indigenous tribes of the Warburton Rangers escape your version of "The Territorial Imperative". Even Rupert Murdoch reported on that one!.
A.Was it only indig who suffered or whites as well? Who were the victims of most of the testing including agent orange etc I suppose you think only idig children suffered here as well. No one had nukes 200years ago so stop avoiding it and answer the Q, you are right though the dutch & Germans would never have tested nukes on the indig cause they would not have been any left by the time nukes were invent. Please try again & dear god at least tell me u have some basic knowledge of the tests germans did on the innocent. Let me enlighten u between the 2 some of the worst ever in history.


Q.Both Japanese and Chinese sailors visited the pearling coast centuries prior to European charting of the coast.
A.I know but according to u they only look Japanese.


Q.It just seems to me, living on this side of the country, that the most bigoted, ignorant, xenophobic slurs to come from my countrymen, happen to come from NSW or QLD. It could be my misinterpretation of the discourse. Or maybe its because this western state was built by the migrant workforce, and not the landed gentry that wished to place suffrage only to those 6 pastoral holding families (Again, this fact is not widely known, but if you look into the history of federation it is ABSOLUTELY clear this was Lord Forrests intention; and one of the reasons the sandgroper state is not considered an "original" state in...
A.I have seen how WA speaks of the indig so try your "were not racist" crap on the ignorant.
So you are not only fine with the slur niggas but also sandgroper, yet an abbreviation Japs bothers you, your logic is lost on me & by the way I have a few friends who would knock u down if u called them a sandgroper.

Entertain this idea for a moment. If you put four people of a number of races, and say make it three males and one female from each race on an island with limited resources, what would be the outcome ( would innate racism kick in?) I know this is off topic but just interested?

4 people of different races on an island, 3 male 1 female.

Racism would only take rise if the 3 men wanted to attract the female; racism is a way of belittling another for whatever chosen reason.

A question for you, if the 3 men were gay – what would be the outcome? Would racism show its ugly face, or would the island just be ‘fabulous’?

If the men were straight and the woman said that each man could have her equally – would racism be shown or would they live in harmony?

To close; with limited resources, the only outcome would be survival of the fittest – it would not come down to race or sex.

What are your thoughts?

The only 'earning' that lady did was waiting for her daddy to die so she could inherit his enormous wealth. Yup, a real rags-to-riches success story.

Opps, its not often that I misread a post, my apologies, I blame my flu.

Just so I don't get it wrong again, suggest the ethic groups, I would not wish to hinder the question by choosing unique or small groups.

Also, even though I read the question incorrectly, can you see what I'm getting at?

Racism only sprouts from some need as an animal to believe that we are superior in some way to another or to conquer and / or survive. It can also come from religion, we see that today, its also inbred from the last 2 world wars..... and the continuing wars (always wars) and also, racism is caused by being uneducated about different cultures and belief’s, some people are scared of what they don't understand.

Even though a different culture may seem barbaric or ancient in its thinking (same could be said about religion) to some, to understand and educate them over time 'leading by example' is better than killing them, taking their land or just letting them die which is the current SOP for the US and Australia..... which creates more racism and hatred.... it does not cure the problem.

I truly believe that religion and racism may be the reason why our species won't survive (more than a cataclysm) I do remain hopeful that one day people will just stop hating each other and work towards a common goal like getting off this rock. If we did not have religion and war, we would be amongst the stars by now, but yet, we spend the money on killing.....

I have never understood why some people think someone is 'inferior' to another because of the colour of there skin..... never been able to work that out? Unless the colour of skin for them only means where they came from, place / race association....or something like that......

Take any number of groups? I understand your reply, but I feel you will have to think a little outside your existing belief to run with this. Don't get me wrong I am aligned with alot of what you say, but there could be something built in. Perhaps this is the reason we have survived?

Another off topic Mick. I was driving to work about four months ago, around 6.15 am making my way around the back of the golf course, I looked to the sky and saw an amazing bright, yet crumbling light, in the bright dawn sky. I instantly thought plane crash! But as quickly as it appeared it disintegrated. When I got to work in Taren Point I googled and came up with nothing? Just thought I could share.
