The workers of NSW are about to face the most drastic times in their lives. Mr O’Farrell has just made sure that the people who are struggling to survive on the workers’ compensation payments now, will suffer even more, not only the injured party but his or her family also.
Will the wealthy suffer, will the politician suffer? No, life is set for them and that is why there is little to no concern for what the Premier is doing, because he has the best of everything.
