Costs will be passed on

When government’s talk about slugging polluters with extra costs and compensating households it is important that we all understand what that actually means for us.

Consider what it means for Australian businesses, from the mines, electricity producers, the aluminium industry right through to small local manufacturers with a handful of employees.  

Pricing carbon at 20 or 30 or more dollars a ton more than other countries... has a direct effect on more than that business.

Of course increased costs to one business,  like electricity producers, has to be passed onto their customers.  Some households will be given compensation but what about businesses?

Additional costs will be passed on from one business to another and eventually through to customers, you won’t be compensated for those increases.

For some businesses, those additional costs will mean it becomes unprofitable to manufacture in Australia and those jobs and investment go overseas.

Less jobs in Australia mean a less productive economy, and less export earnings as well as more imports… and that is exactly what this government want for our future...moving forward … Turn It UP.
