Australia wide, state governments are in the process of buying over $10 billion worth of new trains, locomotives, and freight cars.
In every state except Victoria, those billions are being spent supporting the Indian, Korean, Chinese, and United States rail industries, not Australian rail jobs.
In Victoria, the Andrews Labor Government announced a plan for Australian rail jobs:
Imagine how internationally competitive our rail industry could be if State Governments followed Victoria’s example and abandoned their ad-hoc approach to the purchase of Australia’s future public transport and rail freight requirements.
Imagine the positive impact on Australia’s record unemployment if the $3 billion of your tax dollars was invested in our local jobs and industry.
