I would suggest it is already cheaper to produce anything in these countries then in Australia and in particular in China where the labour costs are a fraction of ours. Our cost of living is not comparable to these countries so why should workers be screwed and told that their salaries are so much higher then overseas workers and hence trim their pay increase demands. Even with executive salaries, the same position in Sydney will pay more then in Adelaide because the cost of living in each state is taken into account.RICHO said:18% over three years?!?!?! You have got to be joking!!!!
What happens when it becomes much, much cheaper to produce Commodores in Brazil or China or anywhere else..
