Help businesses in health care
MORE support for businesses connected to health is wanted by Perth Surgical Shoe Makers owner Andries Van Tonder in Wembley after the State Election this Saturday.
“Labor may be better for my clients, while the Liberals may be better for my bottom line,” Mr Van Tonder said.
He would like to see more support from both parties for small businesses. However, personally, it is the issue of land tax that affects him.
“I used to pay $3000 and now I pay $10,000 on my other three premises,” he said.
He would like both parties to take greater care of those who used services related to their health care, such as his making and fitting of specialist surgical shoes.
“People with a disability should be looked after better. For instance, I make shoes for someone one year, then I don’t for several years just because they can’t get through the health system,” he said.
