The Abbot List

A way to keep track of Abbott's bad policies and morals when the next election is upon us.

Such as... The Green Army.

Employing 17 - 23 year olds to train and work in environmental protection is a great idea.

But paying them half the minimum wage and affording them zero workplace protections such as Work Health and Safety Act, the Fair Work Act and the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act, especially considering the dangerous nature of physical labour isn't fair.
