On this episode we challenge the Australian government’s claim that tax cuts for business will lead to higher wages for workers. We also discuss concerning government influence over the ABC on this issue (see the Guardian and Media Watch for more on this) and which sector Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull serves, demonstrated by his reversal on the Banking Royal Commission once the banks requested it themselves.

We also discuss the Australian Unions campaign to Change the Rules and bring fairness back.

The episode features a great video from Juice Media on the proposed charity gag law by the Australian government, which we discussed on episode 201. Please watch and share the video here and it is also embedded below. We also encourage people to contact the Labor party to urge them to reject these laws.

Finally, you can hear Nick interviewed on the ABC discussing his article on dogs being considered property under the law. You can hear Nick at 23:20 into this episode of Evenings with Melanie Tait.

Thanks to everyone who put us well over our Crowd Funding target! We’ll be buying a new microphone to improve the sound quality of the show and we’ll also do another video podcast with our new equipment to thank everyone for their support 🙂
