Labor fighting for Qantas

Yesterday’s news of the loss of 5000 Qantas jobs has sent a shockwave through the entire country and Kingsford Smith.

As the son of a former Qantas worker of 37 years I understand the pride that comes with working for one of this country’s most iconic companies.

But while pride in one’s work is a wonderful thing it can make the news of imminent job losses that much more soul crushing.

So to those 5000 workers, many of whom work and reside in my electorate, I offer them my sincerest sympathies.

I also offer them the commitment that Labor will fight to ensure Qantas has a future in this country and that Qantas remains our national carrier.
