Comment on Builders incensed over Indigenous rules for govt. jobs by Justin.

From a consumer point of view you want well trained efficient tradies doing the work.
These days you are likely to get a tradie with a couple of Aboriginal apprentices in tow.
Fine to pay for three workers if they are all working.
But it’s clear that this is not always the case, the tradie is working the others are looking on.
This has got nothing to do with race, it’s an issue of costs and employing less than suitable people for a job leads to higher costs for the consumer.

Taxes on profits fund measures aimed at increasing Aboriginal employment.
Ergo measures that hurt companies and reduce their profitability are counter productive in the long term.
Chief Minister Adam Giles has just destroyed his credibility.
