The LNP don't care. They just don't care.Underemployment is also about to ruin this nations ability to pay for pensions.
If I am Scotty i am making sure that every Aussie has a 40 hour well paying job per week or else this nation is f’ed even more.
But Scatty cant see past next week let alone 10 years down the line (Can we get like a clone of Keating in charge, I want My nation to be in safe hands, not in the hands of ******s)
Casualization, off-shoring jobs, etc helps their business mates make more money, which is all they care about.
They exist for the elite, the well off, big business, their mates - you get the idea.
This is why they look down their noses at the less well off. And treat them accordingly. I copped Robodebt - twice.
They are an appalling stain on this country, Howard started it all and rubbish human beings like Abbott and Morrison have continued it.
I agree with you, I think the tide will turn. I have faith in the younger generation coming through to deal with them and their disgusting politics.
I'm 60. I bought my place (in Sydney) in 87 for $51k, and was able to get a half price interest rate via my employer (a bank). I can't recall what my income was at the time, it would have been in the mid $20k range. A piece of piss.
Try being a young couple nowadays in the circumstances you and I have outlined and trying to buy a house. Impossible.
I used to be a rusted on conservative, but I saw the light and I'm glad I did. The LNP make me sick and I will speak out against them until my dying day.
We are a better country than this.
