The Third Industrial Revolution

The global economy is in crisis.

The Changing Face of Unions

If unions are to regain their relevance, they need to understand the changing nature of their potential membership.  

They need to find a way to become relevant to the white collar skilled workforce.  Find ways to embrace AI and other technologies that are likely to take jobs.  Work with employers to ensure everybody wins.  Find ways to work with Government to ensure all occupations including retired, school, unpaid work, under-employed, casual workers. 

This will mean working with all parties for the common good and coming up with new ideas that fit the way our society is moving without accepting the top-down greed currently driving the economy.

Indeed, because the New South Wales ICAC has consistently refused-allow me to underline that word: refused-to investigate the corruption of the Wran and Carr years, while pathetically and threateningly, like those...

    Alicia Payne:...to these important reforms. But that's typical of this government, isn't it, Deputy Speaker? This is the government that, after countless corruption and integrity scandals, promised a federal ICAC. Yet 2½ years later we find out in its budget that not a single cent, not a single person, has been allocated to establishing this long-overdue reform-just another case of Scott...
