Would not be the first time construction workers are in harms wayHey hojuman , yes I heard dan the man mention this yesterday. It’s completely ludicrous. Was mentioned that it would take 2-3 weeks to make sure sites were properly ‘boarded up and safely secure’ . Everything should be ‘boarded up and safely secure’ when you complete works at the end of each day . It’s my belief that it’s union influence trying to mitigate the impact the new restrictions have on them . As I said , I work in the industry , it’s in my best interest that construction continues but it’s not fair that I can continue to work when others can’t . Particularly when I’ve been advised by a worksafe official that vivid spread is significant within the construction industry
Generations have grown up without the notion of civic pride and now you've got dunderheads like Dan Andrews trying to contain a virus by expecting them to perform civic responsibilities.Then they b*tch about why people are not jumping with enthusiasm to all "row in the one direction".
I don't disagree that doesn't happen.what if the employer is taking some of their revenue in cash? Understating their takings, but maxing expenses to minimise business tax?
What if they want to avoid paying employees tax, leave entitlements, super contributions - they add up.
Even the ATO reckons the cash economy is costing national revenue around 3 billion a year (2015/16)
I am impressed by your unflappable confidence in the good work of the Australian Tax Office, but clearly some businesses and workers are operating outside of the system. Or only partially working with the system, to their own benefit.
