Departure of a ship leaving a port is common practise for me in my job. What also is common practise in my lineofwork is the way the towage sector is under fire. In the blue water most of our jobs are gone, sold out to foreign cheaper labour. The offshore is drying up for unionised workers. Non-union agreements are creeping in, with companies bullshitting the workers and pocketing the wage cuts.. This is un-Australian. Our kids future is not only threatened, it’s almost wiped out. Where Are there jobs? And what of all of our future’s?
