Gina's untruths anger Katter

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 13 July, 2012 - 9:44 AM
Bob Katter has opened fire on Gina Rinehart and her push for overseas and FIFO labour.

Bob Katter, Federal Member for Kennedy, has slammed the intentions of mining magnates such as Gina Rinehart for their dependence on FIFO workers. Mr Katter told Paul Murray that Gina Rinehart's reasons to use overseas labour for her Roy Hill mine are full of untruths.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Peter of Darwin you are off the mark mate. Bob said there are plenty in Australia wanting to work in the mines but Gina Rinehart said they can't get anyone to work in the mines so they have to get them FIFO from outside Australia. LOL Replay the interview Peter & listen to it. :)

  • Bob Katter is completley off the mark. I am a builder in Darwin and, even though the Inpex gas field project is offering up to 3 times the wages I can afford to pay, I have no difficulty in getting people to work for me. The reality is that people also consider life style. Natuarlly, if you offered workers a salary $1,000,000pa, you would get every one from within Australia (including me) to work there. BUT... would the project get off the ground with such a high wages bill? Come back to earth Bob.
