The US-based media mogul took to social media site Twitter on Saturday evening to accuse public sector workers, along with “phony welfare scroungers,” of sucking the life out of Australia’s economy.
He predicted that “other nations” would follow Australia into more conservative politics.
“Aust election public sick of public sector workers and phony welfare scroungers sucking life out of economy,” Mr Murdoch, a US citizen, wrote.
“Others nations to follow in time.”
Mr Murdoch, whose Australian newspaper empire campaigned for a Coalition win, returned to Twitter in the early hours of Sunday morning to accuse public sector workers of taking many more sick days than their private sector counterparts.
“Small item: Apart from higher pay, public workers in Australia take many more sick days than those in hard working private sector!” he tweeted.
