I stand for Re- industrialise Australia
We need to bring jobs back to Australia, so many people are suffering, people out of work homelessness, stress on people with loans, if we bring back the industrial factories Australia will be better off.
Do you have an Australian made Holden or Ford? Now how many of you have an overseas car like all other cars?
Bring back all jobs relating to the car industry, including rubber, metal and upholstery. Its not just one industry affected its all. 32,000 jobs were lost when Holden closed and this continued as more started closing. Did you know that we export 95% of our iron? Did you know we only have 2 smelter factories left in Australia and in the 60s to the 90s we had 16 smelters in Victoria along. The government sold one third of its Telstra shares in Telstra for A$14 billion and publicly listed the company. In 1999, a further 16% of Telstra shares were sold to the public, Australian government with 51% ownership. In 2006, it was announced by the government and was the largest of the three public releases, reducing the government's ownership of Telstra to 17%
In 2009, the Future Fund sold off another $2.4 billion worth of shares reducing the government's stake in Telstra to 10.9%. In August 2011, the Future Fund sold its remaining "above market weight" Telstra shares, effectively completing Telstra's privatization so the Australian government does not own it.
If the government buys up the old factories we can make Australia great again- bring back Holden, Ford, make our own products again. This well lead to getting rid of homelessness.
