Jobs For Qld Australia – John Gibson for the Senate
Hardly a day goes bye without any political party or political representative claiming “Our party is for jobs – we will produce thousands of jobs”. Well what do they really mean? Governments don’t produce jobs no mater how often they shout the cry.
What they really mean is we will spend more money on things like infrastructure and training, roads bridges etc. Well that’s fantastic and it does produce jobs. My point is hardly any infrastructure work has a productive benefit to the nation,sure we might have a better flood proof and safer road or bridge but shouldn’t we have had that anyway? These parcels of infrastructure should be part of any State Government Plan and not when the country is on it’s knees and certainly not when politicians fly in to announce the next big bridge “if you elect me”. Infrastructure planning like this should be planned 20 to 40 years out and be progressively budgeted for.
Where the nations money needs to go is into productive value adding jobs. A farmer with one cow or a small manufacturing business is more productive and is of greater benefit to the nation than any non productive Lawyer, Banker or Insurer. They are non productive overheads merely providing services to the productive workers.
My Focus will be on the generation and promotion of Productive Jobs for Queenslanders. Vote 1 John Gibson Independent Senate Nominee for Qld.
