I agree with the importance of supporting volunteerism in Australia. Australia floats on the goodwill and contribution of citizens donating their blood ,sweat and tears.To tamper with the nobility of the service and sacrifice is tampering with the stitching of what holds us together.
Further to what holds us together, i read that under the CNfta businesses can buy the labor direct from China as the latest betrayal of our people competing for paid work ,from os telemarketers, to students paying 30k for jobs for visas, now to importing the labour . They get paid less, sure, and pay no tax to fund our team of the highest paid politicians in the world.
Or is this part of the 200,000 new jobs, just not aussies in them.
