The Liberals in Queensland are sticking it to the civil servants who don’t like it up them:
Treasurer Andrew Fraser has labelled the LNPâ€™s costings as â€œa direct attackâ€™â€™ on the public sector workers of Queensland.
He argued that with population growth, the 3% cap on annual increases in employee costs meant wage rises would have to be less than inflation.
Mr Fraser also condemned planned cuts to state-based carbon schemes, saying it was a taste of the approach to the environment taken by an LNP government with â€œunfettered powerâ€™â€™. Daniel Hurst’sÂ report on the costingsÂ is here.
