Scott Morrison has chosen big business profits over the jobs of local people.
Under the guise of ‘free trade’ deals, Liberal Governments have increasingly allowed our jobs to be sold off to often exploited overseas visa workers.
These deals make it easier for overseas companies to bring in their own workers to work in Australia. Even more concerning, the former Liberal Minister who designed the deal with China then went on to take a highly paid job for a Chinese-linked company.
In our shipping industry, the Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government’s have willingly issued visas and licenses for foreign-crewed ships to work on our coastlines. This has allowed companies such as BHP to sack local workers and replace them with cheaper crews from overseas.
It all adds up to one thing: big business getting richer, and the rest of us missing out.
