Finally, if the Labor Party is so concerned about the Workplace Authority and the role it has, and is such a strong supporter of the role it has in checking every agreement, why does the Labor Party want to abolish the Workplace Authority?

Under the Labor Party there is no-one checking those individual contracts, especially those that pay 45c for all penalty rates.
