Sky News host Peter Gleeson says in Queensland, under the Palaszczuk government, the public bureaucracy “has become a hotbed of leftist zealotry” which “punishes free-thinking and encourages silos”.
He said while jobs in the private sector continue to be lost throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Labor governments across the country have an “obsession” with public servants.
He said in Queensland, now there are about 250,000 public servants on the payroll, which is “up about 50,000 since 2015 when Labor took power”.
He said while the “public sector blossoms” workers are being protected by “bully boy unions” who fund the campaign of Labor politicians.
He said this is done “in return for more and more employees being put on the public sector payroll, netting them greater union fees”.
"It’s a classic ponzi scheme and we’re the mugs paying their wages”.
