Zero emissions will hit regional workers three times as hard

Michael McLaren

Daniel Wild, director of research at the Institute of Public Affairs, joins Michael regarding the IPA’s landmark research report revealing that a worker in an electorate represented by the National Party is over three times more likely to lose their job than a worker in an electorate represented by the Liberal Party under a net zero emissions target.

 

Workers in Nationals-held electorates are more likely to work in industries which would be most affected by a net zero emissions target, such as mining and farming.

 

Workers in Liberal-held electorates are more likely to work in industries which are least affected by a net zero emissions target, such as finance and law.

 

“Net zero emissions means net zero jobs,” said Mr Wild.

 

“Representatives of the inner-city seats held by the Liberals are imposing significant humanitarian damage on Australians in regional electorates represented by the Nationals.”
