Privatisation has been a bipartisan sport in South Australian politics for far too long. From selling off the state’s public housing and power network, to handing over the keys to our buses and trains, this decades-long fire sale has short-changed the people of South Australia who are often left with poorer services at higher prices.
The Greens have secured a parliamentary inquiry into this endless privatisation, which will consider:
- What privatised services really costs the public
- How privatisation affects quality of services, particularly for the members of the community who rely on them the most
- The impact of privatisation on employment rates and workers’ rights, particularly in regional settings
- The effect on income and wealth inequality
- How privatisation affects social cohesion, public participation and what we expect from our governments
We will continue speaking out against the privatisation of our vital public services.
