And Bill Shorten is part of all this culture..the Liberals are a joke but I will never vote Labour...

Distrupting the potential for businesses to make money, which is taxed, which is fed right back into the very services union members want.

Dumb arse union members.

No wonder membership numbers are dropping like flies.

The CFMEU is basically an organised crime organisation - with tax-free status

This in itself shouldn't be a big problem but unfortunately for us, they are Bill Shorten's bosses - and that is a problem

The time of unions is finishing

The coming time of bad employer great employer will determine movement of labour.

Determine for yourself the likes of Amazon, Apple, Google,

and whether they can effectively maintain "solvent" trading while absorbing normal "tax" operations.

Don't agree at all. Of course membership is falling and has been for some time. This is more due to the decimation of industry with the out sourcing of labour to Asia. Or increased labour on short term contracts and the like. I know the area I am concerned with, a white collar area of employment, membership has grown considerably.


The Union ensured the law was followed during a serious restructure a year ago. Attempts by CEO to nullify Union involvement came to nought, apart from him losing his position inside half a year.
Ever more people have been convinced of the worth of union membership in such areas.
The likes of Murdoch and tabloid propaganda will unlikely prevail. People are waking up to the corporate scams of tax avoidance and 457 scams .

..I look at the Unionists and think...a decent haircut and a decent shirt..no need for a Union..he he..

Memorable Turnbull: when he ripped into Shorten and Bill had to turn away...Malcolm on that occasion actually 'nailed it..'

I'm certainly no great fan of M Turnbull (much preferred T Abbott) but surely the Australian people can see what a crock of shite B Shorten really is?

What's wrong with their haircut? I oppose corporate leeches and banksters as much as the next thinking man, but haircuts hardly come into it.

No need of course if you want an ever fearful work place with no avenue to turn to in times of exploitation and abuse.

Does the exploitation not still take place?

Would not social pressure work better?

You say its declining (top marks for recognising the facts) then say more and more people are recognising its worth.

Now who's asleep at the wheel?
