- As our
economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our
ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication
to compete with the rest of the world, we're going to need
every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining
the workforce, gaining new skills.
Gillard # Politics,
- If the
quantity of labour realized in commodities, regulate their
exchangeable value, every increase of the quantity of labour
must augment the value of that commodity on which it is exercised,
as every diminution must lower it.
Ricardo # Labour,
it comes to labour market reform, here's the difference between
us and John
Howard regards labour as just like any other economic
commodity. We actually see labour as made up of human beings.
These are human beings with an intrinsic dignity. When they
go to the workplace, they're not just like a lump of wood
or a piece of coal, these are human beings, and they should
be treated properly as people with intrinsic rights.
Rudd # Reform,
