productivity wage increases to customers Fourlower skill developmentbecause we have not figured out how to fund skill development for informal employment Fivea single national rate is more vulnerable to trade union capture And sixreduced competition between states for jobs The last point is critical because it is an unfortunate accident of history that labour is a concurrent legislative subject It

total employment since 1991 The limits of service sector growth are amply demonstrated by the kind of jobs taken by many of our 12 million engineers produced every year Increasing manufacturing jobs needs many things hard infrastructurelabour law reformand a tighter coupling of education and employment but minimum wage fudging is not going to help It is baffling that the rhetoric in the last
