Unions and worker’s rights in the pandemic: an interview with Godfrey Moase

Godfrey Moase: COVID-19 has really increased the prominence of organising around safety for unions, and also safety more generally as a set of issues for workers. With COVID-19 coming basically...

How Much Does a Basic Income Cost?

When discussing the topic of a Basic Income, the cost of the program is often people’s first question. After all, if the program were to deliver “an unconditional livable wage to every permanent resident” when the Henderson poverty line is ~$24,000/year and the population of Australia is ~24,600,000, back of the envelope calculations cost a Basic Income at approximately $590,000,000,000/year!...

Lethal Weapons: The Violent Politics Of Australian Defence Policy

It was hard to miss, and that was kind of the point. As if to really ram home the “potency” argument made in the PM’s press release, the front page of Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph featured a turgid surface-to-air missile, flanked by two smaller silver missiles, ejaculated from somewhere in the far north of South Australia.
