Parliament: Speeches on Bills

Labour Hire Licensing Bill

The Hon. K.L. VINCENT: I simply wanted to briefly place on the record that the Dignity Party also supports this bill which, as other members have noted, arises from a Four Corners exposé into the exploitation of workers. This is obviously a very important measure, particularly symbolised by the fact that the Master Builders Association and the CFMEU have come together, which is not a thing that happens very often, to say the least. It shows us how important it is that we address these issues and the level of support for this bill that has been before us for some time. With those few brief words, I wish to lend my strong support to both this bill and to workers’ rights generally.
