Victoria’s mental health workforce, including mental health nurses, social workers, peer workers, lived experience workers, occupational therapists and administrative staff, have been denied a pay rise.

While this is an important step towards addressing the rights of labour hire workers, the key to the success of this new regulation will be enforcement. I hope that greater attention will be paid to ensuring that labour hire workers are not exploited and have access to a safe working environment.

We need more working people in Parliament.

I came to this place because I know what it is like to have your struggles, experiences and opinions ignored.

I’ve made your voice heard.

Sincerely agree, Rod - but I’d like to expand on that just a bit …. We need more working people in government departments - so that we defeat the lack of understanding and zero empathy with the workers at the various coal fronts…,

Rod Barton - You more than many of your parliamentary associates have a sound understanding of what it means to do things right and do the right thing

We appreciate your efforts Rod , I’m glad you’ve stuck to your word , you’ll get my vote again!!

Thank you Rod, we need to keep you in Parliament.

THANKS you very much You are great man and Carrying so many people In taxi and hicars

Your passion is worth bottling Rod. Keep up the fight for small business

Well done mate.. cheers 😊😊

Well done ROD

Well done Rod. Keep up the good work.

Rod, you bring values to public life that distinguish you from so many.

It is no doubt hard struggle in parliament because you came from this industry you know the major problem. I can’t say the same thing about rest of the parliament members. Once again thank you for your time and effort in parliament.

love your work Rod

So wish we had you in WA we certainly need someone to keep them honest over here. The treatment of the taxi industry has been so unethical and our experience is sadly one of dealing with dishonest senior policy officers with their own own personal agendas. No assistance from the CCC, Ombudsman even a Parliamentary petition all squashed because they don't want the truth to be told 🙄😪

You got my vote

I’ll join you.

Last time I asked about the Williamsons Rd development, I had two Ministers both claiming the other was responsible! So I asked again....

Keep hammering Rod - ANOTHER EXAMPLE of the criticality of independent representation when 2 ministers can duck shove and deny to avoid having to respond to community concerns ☹️
