State Governments 500?

So this comes as no surprise, the government had always intended to lay off more public servants than what was “promised” during the election campaign. The tactic is very reminiscent of the Robin Grey’s administration of the early 80’s where negotiations fail so plan B is to bully the real plan A through.

There’s going to be industrial action for sure, if the premier & cabinet department come out without any loss. So if the government has the money to payout entitlements, surely the treasurer is lying about the state coffers.
