Greens challenge Rudd’s razor gang

6th Nov 07

Greens leader Bob Brown has challenged Kevin Rudd to say who his razor gang will be and how deep they will cut.

“This will frighten every federal public servant in Australia. The big end of town will love it, but the people who serve this nation are now all on notice.”

“Coming two weeks after Mr Rudd announced $31 billion in tax cuts slanted to the rich, the prospect of thousands of public servants being shown the door by Mr Rudd will put a cloud over this Christmas for all of them,” Senator Brown said.

“Mr Rudd should be tackling the multi-million dollar salary packages of Australia’s fat cat executives if he wants to make the country more efficient and socially just,” Senator Brown said.
