Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee; Reference
One Nation will be supporting this motion because—hearing from the trucking companies—those owner-drivers say that this needs to be looked at. Big companies are actually taking over and controlling the pricing, and if we don't do something about it we will lose the owner-drivers, who control 85 per cent of the market. It will have an impact on rural and regional Australia, so I think it's important to get the truth out there to make sure that big multinational companies are not destroying owner-drivers. We therefore support this motion.
