The Coalition and Labor have wasted the resources boom and are failing to plan for the future as record mining investment ends. Mike and the Greens have a plan to drive innovation, roll out the NBN and tackle job security.
Our future lies with our minds, not our mines. The major parties have wasted the resources boom and are failing to plan for the future as the record mining investment winds down. Manufacturing in Australia has been under increasing pressure. Meanwhile, the industries that will sustain us in the future – research, healthcare, education, clean energy – are regularly attacked by the old parties.
Instead of spending the current $12 billion to subsidise the fossil fuel industries of the past, the Greens will use these dollars to back the jobs growth areas of the future. Innovation through research and development is critical for promoting new industries and jobs as well as supporting current employment.
