Female Quotas for Queensland Police – References

#QPS #AUSPol #GenderQuotas

Prompted by a question at a recent Jordan Peterson lecture I look at the 50% female police recruitment quota for QPS. Reading through the Police Union magazine we find evidence of gender-based discrimination in other roles and services. We need to let our politicians know that this behaviour is not acceptable in “Fair Go” Australia.

I discuss a recent article from the ABC about the decline in employment in the construction industry and reduced wage growth. From reading the article it appears that some of the analysts have never experienced the challenges of running a small business.

Aboriginal Council Evicting a White Town – References

Mintabie #Eviction #Discrimination

I look at the case of Mintabie and the eviction of an entire town. Looking at a recently published article from the ABC and a government report it seems like the residents are being discriminated against based on their race because they will need a permit to even access the land. Essentially the aboriginal authority can create an ethnic state and restrict public access to their territory.
