“Politicians have a choice … between standing up for workers and kneeling down at the feet of the Gina Rineharts and the Clive Palmers …” - Wayne Swan, The Monthly 2012
Wayne Swan is making critical decisions over the next couple of weeks in an attempt to reach a budget surplus. By his own words, the choice between continuing to give freebies to mining magnates vs. standing up for workers should be clear.
Nurses, aged-care workers and teachers like Janice, Michelle, Inge and Clare are sick of their tax dollars going to prop up billionaire mining magnates and are asking Swan to put our money where his mouth is.
