Who’s afraid of the Union bogeyman?

Howard wants us to believe unions will stop the sun coming up if he loses. But the reality is most people under 40 can’t remember anything unions have done – and if they can it’s positive. This little story has a kinda cool video piece with it – have a look here.

    Hi Tim,

    Its interesting the general consensus of the perception of unions. To most, people like to have the backup of a union which helps them with any disputes in the workforce. Take the teenage workers of chillis in Wollongong for example. Who was looking after them?

    Yes your right, I dont think this angle is working well for the PM. I do think the recent comments labelling ‘Rudd as a christmas present that you cant give back’ and ‘change for the sake of change’ will sway some voters though.

    You’re absolutely right chris. Unions are undoubtedly a force for good. Most bosses are great. But howard’s attempt to desptroy them all together is a reflection of his extreme ideological views
