Instead of signing the ‘Donate Australia’s New Year’s Eve firework money to our struggling farmers’ petition here’s a thought. Instead of asking PM Malcolm Turnbull to donate Australia’s New Year’s Eve fireworks money to our struggling farmers. Use that money to negotiate a pay deal whereby these farmers, whom are struggling, are paid to go to up skill Indigenous communities and assist in setting up self-sustainability. It’s a win-win-win situation for everybody.

1st win: Farmers draw the income they need. A sense of self worth is achieved.

2nd win: Indigenous communities get access to skills needed. A sense of self worth is achieved.

3rd win: Healthy people create healthy farming communities and healthy Indigenous communities. Healthy people also leads to a reduction in health related cost and expenditure.
