Campaign targets Barnett’s Bad Decisions
The Save Our Services campaign today launched new TV advertisements that target the bad decisions and wrong priorities of the Barnett Government.
Meredith Hammat, President UnionsWA said:
“Frankly the Barnett Government has got its priorities wrong and has made one bad decision after another.
“Premier Barnett finds big money for building projects in the inner city while failing to invest in suburban transport.
“He’s getting around $4 billion a year from mining royalties while increasing electricity prices by more than 62%.
“Premier Barnett has just cut the public sector by a further one and a half thousand staff while our population has grown by seventy-three thousand in the past year.
“And the list goes on, our hospitals have been privatised, there are not enough child protection workers, rents and housing costs have soured.
“Resource booms come and go, the important questions are: where has all the money gone? What have we gotten from the boom?
“We’ve certainly been left with big buildings, big traffic jams and high costs of living.
“These advertisements are a message to Premier Barnett: change your priorities, overturn your bad decisions.
“In the past Premier Barnett has arrogantly dismiss campaigns on behalf of working people by unions.
“Working people deserve to be heard about the decisions that affect them – their costs of living and the services they and their families need.  Government-paid and corporate advertising shouldn’t be the only voices in public debate.”
Low resolution downloads of the advertisements and further information are available from www.saveourservices.com.au.  High resolution versions are available upon request.
On twitter see also #barnettbads and @SaveWAServcies.
Meredith Hammat is available for comment.
