4BC Drive: Revelations that mining companies want to bypass Queensland workers in favour of cheap foreign labour have caused a stir in political circles. The topic couldn’t come at a worse time for mining companies as thousands of BHP coal miners in central Queensland started a seven-day strike today, seeking changes to work conditions.
4BC Drive with Gary Hardgrave brings into the debate Stephen Smyth, CFMEU Mining and Energy President, Aidan McLindon, Katter's Australian Party Leader and Cr Ann Crawford, Isaac Shire mayoral candidate.
Rod Camm - CEO of Skills Queensland
Michael Roche - Queensland Resources Council
Stephen Smyth - CFMEU Mining and Energy President
Thousands of BHP Coal miners begin a seven day strike.
Aidan McLindon - Katter's Australian Party Leader
The Australian Party says it will not accept the temporary migration arrangements to allow foreign workers.
Cr Ann Crawford - Isaac Shire Mayoral candidate
FIFO rush foolish warns Isaac Councillor
Yet another cynical and brazen attempt by the mega wealthy to make sure that they can dig our nations wealth out of the ground and give nothing back. If you want cheap labour go to Africa and Mine there, plenty of other miners will want to come here and plunder or National Wealth. This is not a Labor Liberal thing this is something that all governments should be wanting to stop. Disgracefull!Bazza Monday 20 February, 2012 - 12:45 PM
"Revelations that mining companies want to bypass Queensland workers in favour of cheap foreign labour" and the moron government claims that unemployment is down to 5.1%, time to stand up to this government who hates Australians in Australia. Get on to your MP and tell them what you think, tell your friends, tell your relations. They are advertising Australia in the Middle East as the new Mecca look at the benefits that you get. Time to get rid of Labor for ever get rid of this govenor.mick Friday 17 February, 2012 - 5:06 PM
I am interested to see how the mad monk is going to pay for the planting of the trees he proposes as part of his alternate to JG's C Tax.
Getting ahead of myself, he would need to form government. Not much chance of that in the foreseeable future, especially if Rudd leads the Reds.James W Friday 17 February, 2012 - 1:27 PM
Richard & mick, this James W Clown has no idea of reality you are wasting your time trying to explain Facts or Truth he would not know what they are. Wacko Willy as I call him also relys on his other personalities to back him up JOC, Bob Lord, roger, just me etc. the blokes a Lunatic, Skitzo you name it he's all over it.Peter B Friday 17 February, 2012 - 12:45 PM
I agree, innovation is the key, the issue I have with your proposal of POUR(ing) CAPITAL INTO PRODUCT ENGINEERING OF THE BIG POLLUTERS, is that WE will have to fund it. The type of thing they do in communist countries, as our resident expert on communism, mick, will attest to.James W Friday 17 February, 2012 - 12:37 PM
You have TAX on your brain mate.
I am sick of repeating myself.
LEAVE THE INDUSTRY ALONE TO DEVELOP ITS OWN GREEN TECHNOLOGIES THROUGH REGULATION.
NO TAX JAMESW,
No extra cost to the business.
Do you get my point now.
You see the carbon dioxide tax will do nothing to change the planet.
Industrial innovation is the KEY.
If I have to repeat it one more time , I will consider that you suffer from cretinism which inhibits your mental capacities.Richard Friday 17 February, 2012 - 12:07 PM
