• Support businesses, sole traders & companies without employees especially in the music industry
    In the music industry there is very little hope that any form of normal operations will be possible for a long time and even teaching a musical instrument especially a woodwind instrument will only be possible on line, which is not satisfactory for advanced students. Soloists, Ensembles, Chamber Music Groups and Orchestras will have no way to provide any work for the many outstanding freelance instrumentalists probably for years rather than months even after a vaccine has been rolled out especially the impossibility of overseas touring which many artists rely on.

  • Fire Michael Sukkar
    As revealed in the 60 Minutes' expose on Sunday the 23rd of August, the Federal Member for Deakin and Minister for Housing, Michael Sukkar, has been accused of being complicit in an extensive and fraudulent scheme to increase his ideological influence through the Victorian Branch of the Liberal Party. This scheme was also alleged to have helped install Marcus Bastiaan and himself into influential positions between the state and federal branches of the Liberal Party. If true, Minister Sukkar’s involvement with Marcus Bastiaan is reprehensible. It’s been alleged they collaborated and organised together, and used high paying ministerial offices of various members of Parliament to funnel taxpayer money and resources to help increase the internal influence of the Bastian-Sukkar political faction, as well as externally influence political donations. They’re accused of employing a network of friends, and even Minister Sukkar’s immediate family, and the pair were able to utilise taxpayer funds to pay these accomplices for the organising and branch stacking. These insurgent operatives in electorate offices have been employed to purchase votes, and register fake members, in order to stack branches within the Liberal Party of Australia. As a likely participant in this insidious plan, Michael Sukkar has allowed his office to host an unknown number of Party recruiters and organisers in fake political jobs. Minister Sukkar is lacking any shred of personal integrity, as he has overseen part of these criminal actions, employing a graphic designer with the express purpose to create flyers that were used to either solicit political donations to the Liberal Party or discredit political opponents within the Party. This position was also funded by taxpayers. It is an utter embarrassment and disgrace that the current Liberal Prime Minister, Scott Morrison has failed to properly address and respond to these allegations. Any politician alleged to have been involved in the misuse of public funds should be temporarily stood down, and doubly so when that same politician is implicated in alleged fraud related to branch stacking. Minister Sukkar, if any integrity resides within him, would happily volunteer to stand down from his positions until a full investigation takes place, and his lack of action speaks volumes about the validity of these claims.

  • Protect Aged and Disability Services in Horsham
    We can’t forget about our older community members. They deserve to be cared for and looked after. Some are not fortunate to have family or friends to advocate on their behalf. The aim of home and community care services like Meals on Wheels, assistance with showering, shopping and cleaning is to keep the older members of our community in their own home and out of aged care facilities. Many other councils throughout Victoria have privatised and outsourced these services. And those who deliver these services are some of the lowest paid workers predominately female workers. We as a community cannot afford for these services to be privatised.

  • Andrew Bolt is a public health menace.
    Bolt writes one of the widest distributed columns in the nation. He always uses this platform to promote his anti-science agenda. Maybe you can argue that is free speech. But when he is blatantly pedalling falsehoods on public health during a pandemic he must be refused a platform. Mr Weir needs to pull Bolt into line before people die.

  • Stop limiting our free speech!
    The new social media policy is draconian and unfair. It would allow managers to fire and discipline staff they don't like, just for perceived crimes online. Some of these crimes would be as miniscule as liking a comment or graphic online. Public servants have a right to free speech too. We demand transparency and that the new social media policy is discarded.

  • Don't hand public road maintenance to the private sector
    South Australians deserve safe public roads. If the maintenance of our roads, traffic signals, level crossings and street lighting is privatised, safety will be at serious risk, and will result in more costs to taxpayers. Public servants working in the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) have decades of experience in maintaining our public roads -- there is no logical reason to hand what is a key government responsibility to the private sector, which is renowned for cutting corners to increase profits. There are hundreds of publicly managed roads around in South Australia. Privatisation will lead to reduced quality roads -- slower turnaround time for repairs to malfunctioning traffic lights and signals, a deterioration of road quality, particularly in regional areas, and a loss of industry expertise. Private companies are only interested in generating profits for shareholders. This means any workers who are employed by the new private provider will eventually suffer reductions in wages and conditions. The Public Service Association is opposed to privatisation, which always costs the community more at the expense of quality services. We ask you to tell Premier Marshall to end his government's ideological obsession with privatisation and to start investing in our public services, not cutting them.

  • All risk no incentive? Pay rise for essential service workers
    The recent Covid 19 income support package has resulted in an imbalance. A hospital cleaner working full time is earning around $1000 per week before tax, and usually takes home around $750. The worker must meet all personal expenses including housing, transport, food, childcare, education and medical costs. The essential services workforce is being severely affected by the current crisis as many workers are having to stay home to care for families. We are not going to be able to recruit new workers to replace those who are unable to work. Potential employees would be better off on Centrelink benefits, safer and wealthier.

  • WOOLWORTHS TO GIVE BONUSES TO TEAM MEMBERS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
    As everyone is racing the grocery store and panic buying - we are getting abused, things thrown at us and not being treated with respect. We are risking our lives/our families because we don’t know if anyone we are coming into contact with has the virus. Hundreds of people visit supermarkets per day and the rate for people being tested positive is doubling everyday. It’s not right - we’re not being protected enough. Woolworths should be giving both salary and EBA team members a bonus to support their staff. We, retail workers, and our families matter too.

  • Assign Poker Machine Revenue to Health Care
    Poker Machine owners have done very well from Australians for decades, and in troubling emergencies like COVID 19, it is time for Governments to call for emergency measures. By re-assigning 85% of poker machine takings, it still allows all related employment to be saved. It avails money to be spent on childcare workers to care for Medical Professional's children
