The intervention from the other side is laughable, when we have people on AWAs earning 30 per cent more than those on certified agreements. This motion is a sham. Put simply, it is a reaction to pressure from the union movement. We have had a $50-million tail wagging the dog. As we know, whenever our little pet dog strays from home, it must be brought back, disciplined and reminded of where home and the food bowl are. We need to make sure that our dog is trained not to stray from home again. We have here a $50-million tail wagging the dog. That is the only reason we have this motion before us today—and it should be rejected.
