A world of work : Comments

By David Hale, published 11/6/2020

We are spoilt in a way, and so when the general unemployment rate goes up, we take notice. When, if we become unemployed, we really take notice.

David identifies global poverty, then tetheres it to unemployment, offering grand solutions which involve more sacrifice from our own poverty stricken.

It's actually the latter that pay the highest price for the import of poverty into Australia from other countries.

That is actually "the problem" with his solution.

Dave should, in my opinion, concentrate his thinking on how to shift this burden onto those in a position of power, with their personal conscience scrubbing actions, adding to the burden of the poor and unemployed, so much NOT like them!

To David Hale.

My mother had a miserable life in real poverty, caused by circumstances beyond her control. She died when she was 52 of cancer, but I think what really killed her was her life of extreme stress trying to make ends meet for two decades, and a lack of secure accommodation. But she was smart and she worked hard, so she ended up becoming an executive for Channel 10 in Sydney.

We moved into a 2 bedroom Housing Commission flat, in a block of 84 units. We only had three items of "furniture", a folding card table, a black and white TV, and a folding ironing board. We slept on the concrete floor rolled up in blankets and the unit echoed when we spoke because there was no furniture to break upo the sound.

We waited 6 years to get our flat, even though we had been classified as "most in need". Our neighbours were well off British migrants who had only waited two years for their flat. I can stil remember my shocked mother saying "The bloody government thinks more about foreigners than they do their own people."

And that is the charge I level at you, David. You think more about foreigners that you do your own people. Up yours mate. Stuff the people of Kosovo or any other foreign sheethole. In Australia, Australians come first. Please consider me your implacable enemy.

"Let us do more to ensure that it is a world of work for everyone". How? Have some people dig holes, and others fill them in? What a stupid idea, creating work for people WE DO NOT NEED. There are too many people in the world. There are too many people in Australia because of mass immigration and the high refugee intake, when there are three quarters of a million people PERMANENTLY idle in the country. The more technology advances, the fewer jobs there are, fewer workers are needed. Australia has the added burden of the highest basic wage in the world. The biggest employers, small family businesses, cannot afford to employ anyone they don't absolutely need; and big business has exported its labour to China and low wage Third World countries.

And, why the hell would we be asking ourselves "How about we do more to help the people of Kosovo" when we are too thick to help ourselves via the cessation of the mass immigration of people who are actually a burden - good deal for Third World incomers, disaster for Australians: except for those few of us who are corrupt politicians.

Charity to overseas unemployed! Balls! People have stopped donating in their own country, to their own countrymen, because they don't know how much more they are going to be screwed by the likes of Scott Morrison. We are now in a recession, thanks to his incompetence and general lack of interest in his job.

And Hale wants us to " . bring in more temporary and permanent migrants. Helping people from low income countries get jobs and better paying jobs".

Lord love a duck! Has he been lobotimised?

Spot on, David And the product of either the Sergeant's Shultz syndrome or the, I'm all right Jack, syndrome.

Now, about poverty. we solve it with policies not a new horde of migrants.

First, we need to put folk back to work on productive work and then we need genuine tax reform.

To date, we've exported our better ideas and our best and brightest and lost billions in revenue and hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs

Because we didn't have the nouse to develop and commercialize their ideas and innovation here! And paid for it big time!

This risible rubbish needs to end and be replaced with Government created/facilitated and fully funded co-ops.

That export to the world.

Traditional economic wisdom would have us grow our population base to support a robust domestic market!

And best done with native-born Australians.

And this is where affordable housing, energy and the staples of life factor in.

And allow folk to afford larger families.

To that end, we need rapid rail and affordable desalinated water and the world's cheapest energy! And no, it's not coal!!

New service industries could be predicated on massive medical tourism as annual millions arriving for treatment in daycare cancer clinics utilising miracle cancer cure, bismuth 213!

Would need to be able to self isolate in our hotels and motels for a full fortnight as they are ferried to and fro in single-purpose ambulances/transport.unately for the anti-nuclear brigade, affordable bismuth 213 is created as a virtually free byproduct of, MSR thorium.

And MSR thorium is the world's cheapest energy source and is carbon-free to boot!

This cheapest of al current energy sources would underpin a manufacturing rival/renaissance and quite massive high tech manufacture along with high paid jobs.

And a plethora of wealth creation opportunities

Unfortunately, this'll be resisted to the last man, by the completely gormless, antinuclear brigade.
