Quotes attributable to United Workers Union (UWU) National Secretary Tim Kennedy:
“Today’s Australia Institute report proves what everyone already knows: the system is rigged against workers.
“Workers are copping the bill twice when it comes to inflation and in the meantime bankers and CEOs on seven-figure salaries have the gall to tell workers to exercise restraint.
“There was a brief shining light in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which showed that Governments, workers and for the most part business could actually work collaboratively to address inequality, but Australia has since returned to inequality status quo with gusto.
“Something needs to give because the solutions of yesteryear are not applicable anymore.”
