‘Nonsense’: Fears Labor’s Right to Disconnect plan will hinder business

Gary Adshead talked to Greens Senator Barbara Pocock about the proposals, but is not convinced the plan is not a band-aid solution to an issue that should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
“As soon as I disconnect as a journalist or a broadcaster, I may as well give up on my profession,” Mr Adshead said.
