Well as of today John Howard's new IR laws come in to force and if you believe the unions we are screwed and if you believe those on the right this is the best thing to happen to us.
I don't know what to believe tbh and for once I don't have an opinion as such on this as both sides are the same as a propoganda front trying to sell their product over the other with scare tatics to try and gain votes. However, I will concede that I don't agree with the fines in wanting job protection (up to $6000 for an individual and up to $33,000 for Unions) as it is job sercurity is important to me.
Pay (obviously as it isn't too little) is one thing but I would like job protection. However though with my knowledge and experience in what I do I shouldn't have too much in getting work somewhere else. I can see both sides views but since I'm not actually a citizen so I can't vote so I can't jump up and down and complain too much.
Labor could get re-elected on the basis of this and it's unpopularity (if you believe the media) as well as the AWB scandel and possibily the new anti-terrorism laws if they could stop fighting and *****ing amongst themselves then they could get voted in. For all their flaws you don't see this in the Liberal Party apart from maybe Peter Costello and wanting to become PM.
Thoughts? Am I talking complete absolute rubbish?
