she already commented on australians being overpaid and lazy plus having a shortage of workers to fill her roles, who do you think will fill the roles
when the mines and all the infrastructure associated with it expands across half of australia ?? not the locals, that's for sure.
She makes those comments for the same reasons the politicians do. To pull your strings. To get you to react - as in not to think.
The cause of the job loss is not foreign workers for pities sake. Its the government and corporations taking the opportunity presented by the massive
prolonged global downturn to erase all of the concessions given to workers since your granddaddies days. They are getting you to look away (at easy
targets like refugees, illegal immigrants, gypsies, ufos whatever) away from the real cause of your troubles.
The vast majority of the manufacturing industry was shipped off overseas because the corporations demanded less cost, i.e. lower wages. They went to
those emerging economies, like China. Now those same Chinese workers are demanding higher wages so they can afford rental housing with rents rocketing
and food prices and electricity also getting steep by the month. Sound familiar? The conditions here are happening all over the world.
How about the service industry, there is another prime example.Remember how once you would call the electricity company and get someone in India? They
shipped the call services out of Australia and then to India, then when they demanded higher wages they shipped the call service to the Philippines.
Do you know where a lot of the call services people now? America. Think about next time you ring your local government department , electricity
company, from Perth or where ever in Aussie you are if that is where you are, and hear that American accent.
BTW did you know that in the US 50% of the population is now on or below the poverty line?
Well that is what they have planned for Australia if this global recession continues on into 2013 and beyond - and it will.
Just as soon as the demand for Chinese products from America, Europe, and Japan takes a more serious dive, the demand for raw material from the top of
Australia will suddenly dry up. Any day now. Or are you not paying attention to what is going on with the mines? The Australian today headlines read
the Pilbara based mining operators are facing the prospect of consolidating just to survive the plunge in iron ore prices.
Or read the latest from Aussie yourself:
Mining confidence sapped by
BHP shuts Queensland coal mine as prices slide -
It doesn't matter if they come over here or you go over there, the wages are going to be about the same, you are going to be living in poverty in your
old age. That is where we are all heading as workers.
It is time to realise the kind of game being played here. And how you, I, we all are being played.
It doesn't matter if you are from Wollongong, Chicago, Suva, Shanghai, or Calcutta your wages are being corrected to rock bottom. We are going to be
told 'they' are coming to get our jobs, 'they' are going to take our country. It is all about ruling by dividing.
Do you like it that Gina, the government, the media corporations are pulling your strings?
