Workchaos


The chickens are coming home to roost for the architects of the Orwellian-named "Workchoices". Barbara Bennett, director of the Government's Workplace Authority, confirmed yesterday that 25000 of the recently submitted agreements fail the governments "fairness test".

Put simply, these agreements (involving 4000 employers) disadvantaged employees. To add to the confusion, between 3000 and 4000 employers have been asked to resubmit their agreements because of insufficient information.

It has become abundantly clear that the ill-considered changes to our industrial relations laws were a product of political dogma - not rational economic policy. Unfortunately the Coalition misjudged the mood of Australian workers, who generally do know what's in their best interests, and the back pedaling they've done since has created total chaos.

And it's costing us $93 million in taxpayer funded advertising.....
