Gina Rinehart: Govt strangling of Australia’s world-leading mining, agriculture industries is creating a ‘nightmare’ scenario for our children
And, as has been reported widely, changing IR policy which will make it more difficult for agriculture, mining and many businesses to create the revenue our hugely in debt country needs. If this scenario is not changed, our youth should understand we are creating a nightmare for them – that they will be struggling with high taxes for the rest of their lives. Many will need to forget about the Aussie dream of owning their own home, as they won’t be able to afford such an investment after meeting government tax burdens. Even in schools, governments have been content to not educate children and grandchildren well. In the current high school national curriculum, which mandates what every school child in Australia is taught, iron ore is referenced only twice. Yet climate change and renewable energy are mentioned 48 times. Mining, coal, and iron ore do not receive even one mention in the entire high school economics and business curriculum!
