Amid Rising Cost of Living Abbott Gov Wants to Reduce Minimum Wage

By General Maddox.

Yes you read the title correctly. That’s exactly what the Abbott Governments Commission of Audit is recommending among other drastic measures to end Australia’s apparent terrible economic hardship and bring the budget back into line.

In a recent article published on, the Commission of Audit has stated that the reduction in the minimum wage is to be carried out over a 10 year period and to be done by keeping it one percentage point behind inflation.

The minimum wage should be frozen for a decade, reduced to 44% of average weekly earnings and vary between states and territories, according to the Commission of Audit.

An interesting fact that appears to be overlooked by those reporting on the issue is that indeed we will see more and more inflation. For those that aren’t aware of just how our money supply works, inflation is like a hidden tax. According to INFLATION, THE HIDDEN TAX by Lawrence Wilson, MD

Inflation reduces the buying power of your money, so you become poorer, even if you have the same amount of money in the bank or in your pocket. 

Therefore by recommending a reduction in the minimum wage the Federal Government is saying they have a desire to increase the disparity between the have’s and the have nots. Those that are already struggling on the minimum wage will see the little money they do have becoming increasingly worthless due to the hidden tax called inflation.

The more of this fiat currency that’s in circulation, the less it’s actually worth!

So why is the Commission of Audit making these drastic recommendations? Well according to them…

“If the minimum wage is too high relative to income support then many unemployed people – particularly the low skilled and inexperienced – will be priced out of the labour market and struggle to find employment,” the report said.

That’s right, according to them it’s about jobless figures. Everyone knows that a key platform for re-election by any government is their unemployment rate. If the Abbott Government can stand on the stage and boast a low unemployment figure they believe voters will take that into consideration when it comes time to go to the polls. And what does any single term government want?

A second term.

However, I don’t believe this is just about the unemployment rate. This to me looks like appeasing big business and corporate cronyism. If corporations don’t have to pay their staff more money, in fact, less money, they’re sure to be more willing to pony up party donations for Abbott’s re-election bid.

    I have long wondered why the people who run the world allowed Australia to have a good standard of living. Looks like they have decided to lower it to American standards, so soon we will have all the attendant social problems that America has.
    Wonder if the Federal Police will start bringing in drugs.

      One has to have the BIG PICTURE to understand all the ‘bring them into poverty’ tactics being perpetrated by BOTH political parties against we, the people. The ‘money power’ are now in the process of obliterating the ‘middle classes’ – only the power elite (the 0.001%) and the serfs (the rest of us excluding their useful idiots, the deviant personalities that will control us on their behalf) are to exist. The western world is to be put into dependency on government in order to be able to enforce their will upon us all.

      Jim Sinclair, in an interview (youtube) with Greg Hunter explained that 2014 – 2016 is to be THE GREAT LEVELLING (the annihilation of the middle classes into dependency by various means – watch Joe Hockey for that). The Great Flushing has already occurred – the 2008 GFC which annihilated hundreds of banks most in america including Lehman Bros.

      THE GREAT CULLING (don’t you love their expressions they use to describe their attacks on us) was to occur when the Swine Flu world outbreak and mandatory vaccines occurred (too virile to prolong it sufficiently to do the deed).

      THE GREAT RESET (economic) will occur 2016 to 2020 (gold in hand is looking good).

      Since Australia is a colony of Wall Street our politicians do their bidding and get rewarded afterwards (Julia Gillard employed by the evil Brookings Institute, a globalist hotbed).

      As independent politician Ann Bressington said on ‘The people do not realise – SILENCE IS CONSENT!! We must overcome our apathy, turn off the TV garbage we are brainwashed to watch, and PROTEST to our politicians (email or phone) everytime time they attempt to shaft us. We need to wake up others (tell them to watch Fair Dinkum Radio to listen to Leon’s commentaries), We need to realise GOVERNMENT IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, then everything they are up to makes sense.

      We need to FINANCIALLY support alternate resistance media with even a small monthly donation of say, $5.00 so that we, the people can have a voice and awaken others. ZZZZZ no, don’t bother, its much easier lying back on the couch and watching sports/Big Brother. Note, while you are doing this Big Brother is spying on you from your TV set in actuality.

    The Puppet Abbott Just Doing His Masters Bidding…..Mick Raven

    Australia went metric around 1970 and the average wage then was about 50 dollars per week.
    In the replaced imperial system that was about 24 quid (pounds) per week.
    It was a good wage and we in Aus had a medical system barr none….. who would want to live anywhere else?
    What happened!….. today, an average wage is around 800 dollars per week and if you pay a mortgage or rent and enjoy some of life’s pleasures then you are struggling.
    I’ll tell you….. you must understand that our present money is merely a medium of exchange of human effort and enforced by government.
    A piece of paper and if you have enough of these ‘pieces of paper’ then the world is your oyster enforced by governments and created out of thin air by international bankers.
    You cannot create something out of nothing so somebody has to pay the Piper….. that’s you. the payers through taxation.
    We pay through inflation as our money buys less and less each year whilst our abstract Pollies are borrowing more to balance a hypothetical budget and not only increase our debt but inflate our currency which means our dollar continuely buys less…. it’s basic shit… you do not need a uni degree to understand!
    Abbott is a Rhodes scholar and that means he is controlled by the Rothschild’s and their banking oligarchy who control us via our sweat and tears!
    You see there is a good cop/bad cop scenario between these pretend political parties but both have the same agenda…. Labour hand out and Liberal haul in…. you lose!

    Summary….. the rising cost of living is because we do not print our own money but borrow it from gangster bankers who create our money outa thin air and loan it to us for interest… this interest is keeping us poor, inflating our money (worth less) and that’s the way the banksters want… we now have a debt in Aus we can never repay and a interest repayment that is reducing our standard of living.
    We also have a burgeoning public service across the board and I mean down to Council level so we have multitudes of ‘useless eaters’ commanding the lion’s share of government tax revenue whilst our governments have destroyed our manufacturing industries via the ‘free trade’ con! and restricting open small business by burdening them with restrictive laws.
    Is this democracy…. who is going to work the farm….. Monsanto!!
    You be the judge……. Gus

      Well said Gus. Love it when you contribute. You’re 100% correct of course!

    It’s all about “brainwashing”. Mass hypnotism.

    They con us into believing the fear they’re peddling and then everyone should be happy with any crap decisions they make (well, that’s their theory).

    But, con jobs do have consequences. Check the cartoon . . . .

      Thanks Mick. Great cartoon as per usual.

    Hi General,
    It’s great to access sites like yours and be able to offer an opinion be it right or wrong.
    We do not need this cancer of ‘political correctiveness’ that is undermining our right to ‘free speech’ and burdening us with what our concerned Pollies describe as ‘dissent’.
    A fascinating connotation indeed when our elected leaders surreptitiously promote democracy.
    A very clever description of political correctiveness by an unknown….,

    “Political Correctiveness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.”

    Take care….. Gus

    Hullo General….. yes, our governments refuse to accept that their monetary policies create inflation.
    They expect people to work for less in a grandiose wave of the political arm espousing the crap that “we must tighten our belts” whilst promoting massive salaries and perks for themselves.
    The unemployment figures are the result of the conjuring bureaucratic magicians who obey their masters to keep fruit on their own sideboards and miraculously pull these rabbits out of the hat to confuse the people…… unfortunately not too many ask…. ‘how do they do that…… or, where are all the jobs?
    Australia was a Monetary Sovereign country meaning that we coined our own money in relation to our internal economy.
    Not now as our political folk, over the decades, enlisted us (without referral) into the world banking economy controlled by the few elite families……. nothing short of treason.
    They also enlisted us into the ‘Free Trade’ scam to allow these banking elite corporations to overrule our Laws and absorb our infrastructure that took decades to build.
    I agree that inflation is our enemy and apart from devaluing our money it devalues us as people working to support our families and ourselves.
    Abbott is a Rhodes scholar and Cecil Rhodes, a protege of the Rothschild’s, dedicated his massive fortune to the future control of the world by London……. the monetary centre of the banking elite.
    By understanding this it becomes clear that what they want is Serfdom meaning that you will work and be paid enough to survive.
    Some may think that this is ridiculous but it was all planned decades ago.

    Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor.
    You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed wether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not the character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble….. you might be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well….. George Bernard Shaw. (1856-1950)

    What George did not mention is that Socialism/Communism are just two of the many hats of Corporatism.
    You see…. Abbott will do the bidding of his masters as Australia is controlled by “big business and corporate cronyism”…… Gus
