The government argues that it’s the job of the private sector, not unions, to provide public services. This includes health, education, safety and the environment, it says.

But when the federal government, which was led by the Howard government, gave major concessions on these issues to the private sector it created a powerful backlash from the unions. It made it tougher for workers to unionise and in some instances even stopped public sector unionise바카라사이트d workers being allowed on its work ships.

Widening the gap between private and public sector pay is not just politically popular; it’s part of a broader agenda to close the gap between the rich and everyone else in Australia’s workforce, and 예스카지노to redistribute wealth to the rest of the nation, especially to people on lower wages.

Australia is the only advanced economy where workers earn more by the hour in their workplace than in the private sector. A study released by the UN’s International Labor Organisation in March this year found that for every hour worked in Australia’s publicly-sector workforce, just four workers in the private sector can claim to be in the middle class.

The government argues that these differences in pay, and the growing gap between rich and poor, are a result of increased productivity.

But research by Deloitte suggests that is not at all the case. Instead, the study found that there was evidence that, while higher productivity has p카지노 사이트ushed the rate of national income inequality down, productivity has increased in other parts of the economy and not necessarily on the back of higher productivity.
