“Seems” like they’re doing the same job.
The first Senate Inquiry into the Closing Loopholes Bill is today and we pulled out this gem from the 48 pages of hot air in the Minerals Councils’ submission.
However, beyond their alarmist drivel the underlying attitude of large mining companies towards labour hire workers is clear.
You can literally be doing the same job as someone else – driving a truck – but you’re treated as a second class citizen and that’s reflected in your pay.
This is why we need to close the labour hire loopholes.
We’ll continue to make sure members’ voices are heard as the inquiry continues and keep members updated on the progress of the bill.
