Labor no longer supports labour

Labor may back minimum wage changes - Breaking News - http://www.smh.com.au

The Labor party has not ruled out supporting changes to the minimum wage laws that the Coalition government has proposed despite Unions voicing their disgrace. You would think that a party brought behind the push of mass workers would therefore support the needs of the workers, but it seems with every election loss they move the other way. They are no longer the workers party, just a pale imitation of their nutty right-wing counterparts. This is a stark sign that the class divide between the rich and not so well off is not being closed. So many people in Australia are on the current minimum wage and struggling to be comfortable whilst people in the North Shore live in multi-million dollar mansions and sip champagne for breakfast. They are business owners that become richer and richer because they screw over their workers so much. Capitalism will always be unfair no matter how much Labor tries to sugar coat it.
