Labor Day

Pondering that my enjoyment of such a beautiful day has been made possible by people who have worked so hard to achieve the conditions we now enjoy - like International Womens Day. Labor Day prompts thinking about jobs and all that goes with jobs - the economy, unemployment, casualisation, pay and conditions. So its good news that the Premier visited our part of the world last week to announce the expansion of IT services provider Interactive on Williamstown Rd [near the Fire Station]. 300 jobs are to be created in addition to the 150 associated with the construction of the new premises. A little uncertain about how this sits with other recent government announcements about Fishermens Bend's future as a residential precinct.
