Following the release of the opposition’s workplace relations policy on Thursday, Labor has been scathing in its response labeling the policy a return to the Howard-era WorkChoices regime.

    Minister Bill Shorten is a disgrace, he didn't care that staff in Employment Services lost their jobs,he didn't have the intelligence to investigate the companies that have ripped of the system, by the way Bill, why don't you take a 50% pay cut now and see how it feels to a peasant living in Australia ?

    First off labor needs to stop the scaremongering. There has been more jobs lost under labor's watch then there ever was during workchoices so perhaps they need to be looking a little bit more at their own policies.

    Secondly, employer groups are no better than unions when it comes to representing their members best interests. Instead of whinging about legislation and what it doesn't do for them, how about providing them with more practical on the ground assistance to use the legislation thats there.

    The FWA does not restrict flexibility, the FWA does not stifle productivity. What does restrict both of them is the employers inability to implement processes on the ground to achieve both. Employer groups need to focus on that and actually give employers their money's worth of membership fees.

    This constant bickering and whinging needs to end and they need to stump up and actually start providing the service they so vocally proclaim they give.
