Tax breaks

Sunshine Coast Daily - - YOUR SAY -

I READ with in­credulity that Scott Mor­ri­son is ac­ti­vat­ing a $28.9 bil­lion

tax break to small busi­nesses.

Whilst in the­ory this might sound like a won­der­ful boost for both busi­ness and work­ers, the re­al­ity is that it is com­pletely naive in the ex­treme to be­lieve that this “gift” will lead to a re­lief in a five-year salary stag­na­tion.

His­tory shows profit in­creases boosted by fewer staff are more likely.

Small busi­nesses are al­ready mak­ing profits but no sign that any of this is fil­ter­ing through to wages.

With union power in de­cline, cor­po­rate mil­i­tancy de­crees that salaries will re­main static in most sec­tors. ADRIAN RICHES Bud­erim
