Greens: Toyota job cuts disappointing

Greens Deputy Leader and industry spokesperson Adam Bandt MP today responded to news that Toyota will be cutting two-thirds of its Australian workforce.

“It is disappointing to hear today’s news that Toyota will be cutting up to 2600 jobs across the country.”

“Our thoughts are with the workers and the families of those affected by these cuts.”

“Yesterday, Joe Hockey boasted about his trading away of Australian manufacturing jobs for free trade. This is shameful.”

“Joe Hockey and Tony Abbott must stop their blind opposition to supporting industries who need it and instead start working to protect Australian jobs.”
