Hanson Scores 1600 Apprenticeships for Regional Australia

Media Release – Senator Pauline Hanson

AFTER years of arduous talks with the Coalition, the Morrison Government is today anticipated to announce a $60 million dollar, One Nation inspired Regional Australia Apprenticeship Program, which will see 1600 apprenticeship positions made available, just weeks before high school leavers finish grade 12.

One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson said, “I’ve worked hard for many years to see this pilot program come to fruition and it’s pleasing to see Australian school kids, in regional parts of this country, will be able to approach the local panel beater, hairdresser, electrician, or builder, just to name a few occupations, and ask them to take them on as an apprentice with very little cost to the business.”

“There are 65 different apprenticeship opportunities as a result of today’s announcement and parents should be encouraging their kids to consider a trade instead of a university course.”

The pilot apprenticeship program will see employers paid by the Federal Government 75% of the first year’s wage, followed by 50% in the second and 25% in the third year.

“Businesses I’ve spoken to recognise the need to train more tradesmen and women, but it’s tough in small business right now and training costs and wages have been a major barrier,” Senator Hanson said.

“I understand this because unlike the majority of politicians in parliament I have had the hands on experience of employing and dealing with apprentices while owning and operating a plumbing business with my husband.”

“One Nation has removed the burden of cost to businesses, but more importantly, created a pathway for training Aussie kids in the trades that Governments have given to foreign workers as a result of domestic skill shortages.”

“For years both major parties have neglected Australian apprenticeships in favour of importing labour from overseas through the use of 457 visas and so called free trade agreements, One Nation is determined to put the focus back on Australian apprenticeships and Australian jobs.

The pilot program will focus on the National Skills Needs List (NSNL) and will be centred on regional apprenticeship opportunities, to ensure small towns retain their youth and decrease youth unemployment.

“Regional Australia have some of the highest youth unemployment numbers, this is why the decision was made to have my apprenticeship pilot program target these areas and I’m hopeful this initiative  will start to turn things around,” Senator Hanson said.

Senator Hanson hopes the program will also be made available to family businesses, where parents can employ their kids to help keep businesses alive in regional communities.

“Often parents like the thought of passing their business onto their kids one day, so it’s important that if their kids want to learn the trade, the program is made available to family members also,” Senator Hanson  said.

The Regional Australia Apprenticeship Program is set to be announced by the Minister for Small and Family Business, Skills and Vocational Education later today (October 31) in Wagga Wagga.

Senator Hanson hopes that once the pilot proves successful, future Governments will expand the program to ensure apprenticeship numbers and skilled labour increase across Australia.

Government Drought Package a Joke

This week we saw the government announce how it planned to help drought affected farmers. While the announcement outlined $3.9 billion was going to farmers, in reality this is just going to be held in a bank account with only the interest going to farmers. Full story below.

WHAT A BLOODY JOKE!This morning I read the headline that the government was going to commit $3.9 billion to drought…

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT COMMITS $5 BILLION TO FUTURE DROUGHT FUND

From ABC NEWS 25/10/18

National rural reporter Brett Worthington and regional affairs reporter Anna Henderson

Helping farmers prepare for future droughts will be the focus of a new multi-billion-dollar fund that Prime Minister Scott Morrison will unveil today.

The $5-billion Future Drought Fund will be announced at a national drought summit, which brings together state and federal governments, weather experts, farm lobbyists and charities, in Canberra.

The Federal Government will initially commit $3.9 billion to the fund, which will reach $5 billion by 2028.

But only $100 million will be available each year from 2020, with that money being allocated by a board of guardians.

“This funding will support farmers and their local communities when it’s not raining,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.

“It guarantees drought support for the men and women who drive our nation.”

Legislation to create the fund will have to pass the Parliament before it can be created.

Provided that happens, the interest gathered from the fund will go towards water infrastructure and drought resilience projects.

The focus will be on farmers, non-government organisations and communities to future-proof themselves to better handle droughts.

Money will be for community services, research, adoption of technology and infrastructure that supports long-term sustainability.

Money for the drought fund, which is modelled on the Medical Research Future Fund, will come from the Building Australia Fund, which has sat dormant since the 2014-15 financial year.

With a focus on future-proofing, it means the fund will sit separate to existing projects and funding that helps farmers when they are in drought.

“The challenges of drought vary from farm to farm, district to district, town to town and we continually need to adapt and build capacity,” Mr Morrison said.

Farmers hoping for firm policies

The drought summit comes as the commodity forecaster ABARES yesterday warned unfavourable seasonal conditions would further slash expected grain yields.

The summit will include presentations from the Bureau of Meteorology, ABARES, drought co-ordinator Major General Stephen Day, and drought envoy Barnaby Joyce.

The National Farmers’ Federation has demanded the summit be more than a talk-fest and instead offer concrete policies to support farmers.

It wants a new drought agreement between the federal and state governments, better risk management tools for farmers, and improvements to farmer support payments.

It also wants transport and infrastructure upgrades in regional communities that battle drought.

Opposition critical of drought forum

Opposition agriculture spokesman Joel Fitzgibbon has questioned whether the summit will be worthwhile.

Speaking ahead of the announcement on the multi-billion-dollar drought fund, he criticised the Government for piling such a large number of stakeholders into a short meeting.

“We’ve got two hours for 170 people to discuss long-term planning. It ain’t going to happen, sadly.”

Mr Fitzgibbon maintains the Government should have done more for communities that have been in entrenched drought for years.

“It’s somewhat extraordinary,” he said.

“We are in our seventh year of drought, this Government is now in its sixth year in office, and yet we’re having a drought summit to talk about drought.”

The National Farmers Federation came into these talks with a wish list of measures it wanted the Government to take up.

“Five billion dollars is no mean feat. It’s a significant amount of funding,” NFF president Fiona Simson said.

“Obviously we’ll be interested in some of the detail about what that money is to be spent on, what sort of programs will be supported.”

She said at first glance she was happy with the Government’s approach.

Gunnedah sheep and cattle farmer Chris Mammen is among those living on the land who are hoping that the Government’s policies help in the long term, and move beyond emergency payments.

“The drought policy doesn’t seem to match that versatility that most farmers try to strive for I guess,” he said.

“[It’s] like putting a round ball in a square hole sometimes.”

Pauline Hits the Dirt Road Again

No stranger to red dust, Pauline Hanson has hit the regions again in an impromptu tour of regional Queensland. Making her way to Capricornia, inland and north from there, Pauline has yet again hit the towns that most politicians can’t be bothered to spend the time at.

Her first stop was to Yeppoon, the beachside Central Queensland town 8 hours north of Brisbane. While there she went live on Sky News and had a few words to say about foreign ownership and the Paris Agreement.

Pauline Hanson thinks Malcolm Turnbull shouldn't represent Australia at Bali Climate Change Summit

Scott Morrison has chosen to send Malcolm Turnbull to a Climate Change Summit in Bali, to represent Australia.Just a few weeks ago, Malcolm Turnbull described former PM's Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott as "miserable, miserable ghosts" who should have left Parliament the moment they lost the top job.Perhaps it's time Malcolm Turnbull took some of his own advice and stopped making a miserable, miserable ghost of himself.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #MalcolmTurnbull #ScottMorrison #TonyAbbott

From Glenden Pauline visited Collinsville where one of the largest solar farms in the state is. While there Pauline reiterated her stance that while solar can exist, it shouldn’t be subsidized and we need coal-fired power stations for baseload energy when the sun isn’t shining.

Pauline Hanson visits a 2000 acre solar farm in Collinsville, North Queensland

There's no denying solar has its place in a modern mix of energy throughout the country and the world, but the reality is, it doesn't work of a night and we don't have the battery technology to store the nations power needs.Who knows what the technology future will bring, but in the meantime, I'm still the strongest advocate of building new, low emission, coal-fired power stations to ensure we have adequate base-load power at affordable prices for domestic and commercial purposes.If the Liberals and Labor continue spruiking these unrealistic renewable energy targets, politicians will send this country broke and you'll see even higher disconnection rates than current levels.#Auspol #OneNation #OnTheRoad #PaulineHanson #Collinsville #FNQ #NorthQueensland #Capricornia

Major Parties Call For Immigration Cut – Where Have We Heard That Before?

It seems One Nation’s message is really taking hold and everyone one in Australia is waking up to the fact that immigration rates are too high. NSW premier finally realised what One Nation has been saying for years is correct and called for big cuts, the NSW opposition leader followed in her footsteps and called for big cuts.

Did Scott Morrison and the Government listen? No. Instead they have put out a thought bubble policy about trying to force new migrants to live in the country while keeping immigration rates at their record high levels.

Unlike the Government, we are listening. That is why One Nation is the only party committed to delivering the cuts to immigration that the country desperately needs!

One Nation Leader Pauline Hanson has come out swinging at the government as the state Premier wants to cut migration.

Premier Gladys Berijikilann wants to halve the number of overseas migrants entering her state.

She believes state and territory leaders deserve a seat at the table when the federal government draws up population policy.

But Senator Hanson, who has consistently sounded her concerns on immigration, tells Ben Fordham her critics are only “jumping on the bandwagon” now.

She says the federal government’s push to shift migrants into regional and rural areas “is a load of rubbish”.

“You’ve six to seven thousand multimillionaires that come into this country a year on visas. Are they going to tell them where to go and live?

“Will they go to rural and regional areas? No way!

“If we can’t get Australians to go out to rural and regional areas, how on earth are we going to get the migrants that come in here?”

U.N. Dictates To PM: Listen Or Else

All you have to do is look at a report handed down by the UN to see why One Nation has been calling for Australia to exit the Paris Climate Agreement and stand up to the bullying UN bureaucrats who want to undermine our Australian way of life.

This bizarre report claimed that unless we eliminate all coal fired electricity generation the Great Barrier Reef would be destroyed in 32 years. It also calls for you to heavily cut back on meat from your diet. So that is tough luck if you or someone you know is a grazier or a miner or enjoys a good steak!

Now the Greens are calling for an end to coal mining and coal exports. Anyone with half a brain would realise this would devastate the Australian economy, destroy jobs and ruin many lives.

What the report avoids telling you is how all their earlier predictions were way off the mark. What a joke. Any politician who doesn’t come out and condemn this report and continues to support the Paris Agreement is selling Australians out.

Andrew Bolt explained it well on his program last night so you might want to take a look.

Why Australia Day must stay – Pauline Hanson

This is my opinion piece published in the Courier Mail on why I think January 26 needs to remain Australia Day and why I think it would be a terrible mistake to create a separate national day for indigenous Australians alone.

Please have a read and let me know what you think. Do you agree Australia day must be celebrated on January 26? Do you think we should give in to those who demand the day be changed? And do you think we need a separate national day solely for indigenous Australians?

I’m keen to hear what you have to say.

-Pauline Hanson


Courier Mail, 26/09/18

SCOTT MORRISON was off the mark yesterday when he offered appeasement to those who wish to move Australia Day from January 26 by suggesting the creation of a national public holiday dedicated to the celebration of indigenous Australians.

This would be a mistake because it is simply a continuation of politics that have been dividing Australians for decades.

The Prime Minister must not fall into the trap of splitting Australia into separate groups with different rights, by creating what would be seen as a separate national day for indigenous Australians.

As I said in my 1996 maiden speech, if politicians continue to promote separatism in Australia, they should not continue to hold their seats in this Parliament. They are not truly representing all Australians, and I call on the people to throw them out.

To survive in peace and harmony, united and strong, we must have one people, one nation, one flag. I could add to that one national day.

On January 26, 1788, the future of this great continent changed and no one is trying to deny that. However, to declare that the date represents something regrettable or something that could perhaps be rectified is wrong. Not only is it wrong, but it is a dangerous idea, and if we continue to allow it to grow in popularity, it will slowly but surely tear our great nation apart.

I think opposition to the current Australia Day date is born from an ignorance of history and a powerful strain of white guilt that has been fostered among Australians by a cynical and self-loathing left.

You don’t rewrite history, you learn from it

January 26 has been celebrated in Australia for over 200 years, and it doesn’t signify the colonisation of Australia by the British.

What the date represents is the moment when the brave men and women of the First Fleet arrived in Australia, not by their own free will, but by the will of others. They landed on the shores of a land unknown to them, seeking not to conquer, but to survive.

And no one is denying that there was conflict and tragedy when new Australians, fighting to survive, clashed with Australians who had been surviving here for thousands of years.

But I strongly believe the way we repair the wounds of the past will not be through creating more division, but through celebrating January 26, 1788, the day that our ancestors were thrust together by forces outside of their control and yet still managed to come together to build one of the greatest nations on Earth.
