buttumptions which are not borne out by facts.
What reduction in working conditions are you claiming? What reduced wages? If an employee feels he is being exploited then he should quit immediately.
Perhaps by paying workers a little less they may be able to make enough profit to stay in business and continue to employ those workers. Otherwise they'll go out of business and then you'll complain because the workers got sacked by the employer they helped to send broke. Many Australian industries now source goods and materials from overseas simply because the workers (Unions) demanded too much to maintain a profitable business in Australia.

Apprentices were paid under award conditions which made it almost impossible for the employer to make any profit from them. Nevertheless many employers continued to train apprentices until they became too expensive and the employer was forced to look for alternatives. We now find we have a skills shortage due largely to the greed of the unions who demanded wages beyond the economical cutoff point.
Few farmers get actual subsidies. They do qualify for drought relief from time to time but that is the equivalent of the unemployment relief received by someone who is laid off. Most of the time they must exist on the pittance paid for produce by companies who gouge the farmer by paying a less than fair price. -- David At the bottom of the application where it says "sign here".
