Put something back
Australia is in the midst of a resources boom bigger than any this country has seen before.
But at what cost?
Mining communities are under pressure from skyrocketing housing costs, mounting social problems and a lack of infrastructure.
Other industries like manufacturing, education and tourism are being hammered by a soaring Aussie dollar.
The mining tax will help. We need to make sure commitments to regional infrastructure are delivered, while looking at further measures to manage the boom.
All of Australia bears the brunt from the resources boom. It's time to take the debate away from the billionaires and hear the concerns of ordinary Australians.
It's time to put something back.
