The caring Left
The lost jobs and shattered lives of workers and their families are unimportant:
There are about 11.5 million people working in Australia.Yet a carbon tax, which will will make no noticeable reduction to global emissions, is of utmost importance.
About 150 000 of them work in the mining sector.
If half of the miners lost their jobs, Australia wouldn’t notice a thing.
The added bonus would be that we might be able to find a plumber, electrician or mechanic without having to beg.
