The Turnbull Government is again busy selling out local workers. Last time it was under the China Free Trade Agreement. This time it is under the Trans-Pacific Partnership or “TPP” – a big trade deal with 11 other countries.
Under the TPP, Australian employers can take on workers from Canada, Vietnam, Mexico, Malaysia, Peru or Brunei, without having to give a local worker a chance.
That’s outrageous, especially at a time of high unemployment.
Worse still, no other TPP country has gotten such a rotten deal for local workers. What was the Turnbull Government thinking?
It’s time to stop this Government selling out local jobs once and for all.
We’ve knocked off the worst parts of a trade deal before. With your help we can do it again.
