Senator Cash on Labor’s move to abolish the construction watchdog
Michael is joined by Michaelia Cash, Liberal Senator for W.A. & Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, who says “Anthony Albanese and Labor are effectively handing Australia’s building and construction industry to the CFMMEU with their disastrous decision to wind back the Building Code to the “bare legal minimum” in preparation for the abolition of the ABCC.”
“The building and construction industry is Australia’s fifth largest industry, contributing around 8 per cent of Gross Domestic Product and employing more than 1.1 million Australian workers.”
“Labor is leaving this crucial industry and those who work in it unprotected with this decision”, says Senator Cash.
Michael and the Senator also discuss Labor’s response to the threat of foot & mouth disease to Australia’s agriculture industry as multiple flights arrive from Indonesia daily.
“The risk to our livestock, the livelihoods of Australians and our economy is too high for Labor to still be “considering” options, we need to see more ACTION”, says Senator Cash.
