Last week in the Upper House Assistant President and PHON NSW MLC Rod Roberts stood up for jobs in NSW by pointing out the hypocrisy of the Government.

Mr Roberts asked the question of why would a Government, who is supposedly focused on securing more jobs for the people of NSW, decide to have the new harbour ferries built overseas?

“Surely this Government cannot stand up and say that we don’t have the skilled workforce, men and women who are quite capable of building these boats here in New South Wales”?

“I represent the people of NSW therefore jobs first for NSW (before any other country)”.
