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.

    Larissa Waters:...ones we know about, and they don't even include the work-based harassment scandals. If this is the highest level of integrity Australians can expect from cabinet ministers, the case for a national ICAC could not be clearer. It's no wonder the Prime Minister doesn't want one: a strong, independent integrity commission would leave half the cabinet table empty.
