On this week’s review show we are joined by Unshackled contributor Arthur Pigeons. We dissect the decision of the Australian Fair Work Commission last week to reduce Sunday and Public Holiday Penalty Rates for wages awards in four industries. We discuss the political implications of the decision and the state of the industrial relations debate in Australia.
We also talk yet again about leadership speculation in Australian politics. This follows another shocking Newspoll for Malcolm Turnbull and the actions of Tony Abbott and his supporters over the past week. We discuss whether Turnbull will survive this term as Prime Minister and whether Tony Abbott deserves another chance.
We also comment on the performance of Donald Trump this past week and how he is continuing to make the mainstream media irrelevant. We also comment on his excellent address to a joint sitting of Congress but also we highlight some areas of concern in the Trump Administration.
Arthur also provides an update about the state of the culture wars in New Zealand. Don’t forget The Unshackled’s special Western Australian Livestream at 8pm AEDT on Saturday 11th March with Tim Wilms, Sukith Fernando and Damien Ferri. Please RSVP on Facebook to keep informed about the event.
