Greens want loans tied to cash rate moves

The Australian Greens will be seeking backing from the federal parliament to make retail banks offer mortgages and small business loans that are linked directly to movements in the official cash rate. The proposal comes after something of a stand-off by the big four banks after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the cash rate on Tuesday. It was broken by the ANZ Bank on Thursday when it announced it would be pass on the full reduction to mortgages and small business loans. The other major banks - Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac - have yet to ...

Government abandons ambitious pledge to make schools 'asbestos free'
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 The Victorian government has backed down from its extravagant promise to remove all asbestos from Victorian schools. Before the state election in 2014, the Labor party vowed to establish a $100 million fund to ensure that all Victorian government schools would be "asbestos free" by 2020. Victorian Greens education spokesperson Sue Pennicuik said "the government should be sticking to their promise". "There is no safe exposure to asbestos, it is extremely dangerous substance and it shouldn't be in schools." Read article
Local jobs must be guaranteed in ship building plan
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 The Australian Greens have called on the Government to implement local employment targets to ensure South Australians are prioritised for the thousands of jobs expected to be created in ship building from 2021. “We’re being told it’s going to rain jobs in South Australia in 2021, but we’re in a drought at the moment. With a project that’s offering thousands of jobs, in a state where we have almost 60,000 people out of work, it is important that we look to supporting locals winning these jobs first and foremost,” Greens Senator for South Australia Sarah Hanson-Young said. “Companies should be contractually obliged to ensure locals make up the majority of the workforce. We have the talent here, from decades of a strong manufacturing sector, so let’s use it. “We can’t expect people to languish on the dole in the off-chance that they’re offered a job in ship-building in four years’ time. What we don’t want to see, is a fly-in, fly-o
Greens support calls for a Royal Commission into the abuse, violence and neglect of people with disability
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has welcomed reports that an open letter has been signed by 100 academics urging the Federal Government to establish a Royal Commission into the violence, abuse and neglect of people with disability. “There was a large body of evidence to our senate inquiry on the level of violence, abuse and neglect of people with disability in institutional and residential care. “Despite all this, the Government has rejected a recommendation by the senate inquiry for a Royal Commission into the issue. They also rejected a plethora of other recommendations that if implemented would help keep people with disability safer in care. “It is quite astonishing that the Government seems so disinterested in protecting people that are at such a high risk of abuse, violence and neglect; what became clear from the senate inquiry is that it desperately needs further investigating. “Without close and comprehensive scrutiny into the iss
Greens stand with students protesting against uni cuts
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 The Australian Greens stand in solidarity with students protesting around the country today against the government's harsh university cuts. "This government's attacks on students will not go unnoticed and will not go unchallenged," Greens higher education spokesperson Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said. "The Greens stand in solidarity with students protesting against these cruel and unnecessary cuts. "This unjustified attack on students proves that the government has it in for young people. Rather than investing in higher education, addressing housing affordability and retaining penalty rates, this government seems hell-bent on making life harder for young Australians. Well, we stand with young people and together we will fight back. "The Australian Greens are rallying with students today and we will continue to represent them in the parliament by blocking these ludicrous cuts."   Media contact: Amy Moran 0427 604 760 Media Release Education
