Amid a claim that cooks at a gas plant off the West Australian coast should be paid $230k per annum, the federal resources minister has warned that inflated wages could scare off foreign investment in the sector.

    This type of unjustified greediness can kill the industry and leave thousands of workers without jobs. It was proven in numerous cases when unions took control over an industry that they have destroy it. How long it takes to learn this lesson?

    And unions wonder why employers so proactively seek not to deal with them. What people don't see is that when unions strike deals of this nature the fees the members pay rises as well. Usually by 4-4.5%. Coincidence?...I think not.

    Why need to study medicine, engineering or law, when you make more of a living out of flipping pancakes. I appreciate conditions on offshore rig come at a cost however this is greed and it stands to wreck this lucky country.
