Wicked Campers' Move Welcome But What About Weakening of Anti-Discrimination Law?

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader 

Tasmanian women and girls will welcome moves to ban from the State's roads vehicles which display offensive, sexist signage.

The most obvious example of this in recent times has been Wicked Campers' vehicles, which are often emblazoned with revolting images and words that demean women and girls. 

The Greens will support this legislation, but we'll also be pointing out the lack of consistency in the Liberals' approach to discrimination.

Jobs' Growth Continues to Decline

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader

The Liberals promised Tasmanians looking for work the world when they came to office. Sadly, what we have seen could not be further from the truth.

The ABS jobs figures released today mark the tenth straight month of decline in the trend number of employed people and the trend proportion of Tasmanians with jobs.

In total, the data tells us more than 5,000 Tasmanians have lost their jobs since last September.

The Department of State Growth Annual Report released today reveals that Hazell Bros Group was largely unsuccessful in winning competitive tenders for road works in the past financial year, but did receive $4 416 766.96 for Midland Highway, south of Kempton, improvements.
