The federal government handed $715m to QANTAS to prop it up against the impact of the coronavirus. QANTAS responded by immediately standing down 20,000 workers. The airline should be renationalised immediately and become property of the Australian taxpayers who effectively just purchased it. All workers should be reinstated.
Why is this important?
20,000 workers were just told that their bosses' profits are more important than their lives. A huge handout of Australian taxpayer money did nothing to stop this. Renationalising the airline would allow all these workers to be immediately reinstated, and it would allow Australians to control one of the country's flagship companies and largest emitters of greenhouse gases.
