Bridgestone Tyre Pulls Out of SA, 600 Jobs to Go

Posted on: October 23, 2009

This Labor Government must accept the responsibility for making the state more expensive than any other to do any business that employs people. Bridgestone Tyre is pulling out which cuts the revenue from land tax, payroll tax and business taxes to the state and its 600 employees lose their jobs which adds to the cost of support services from the state. Adelaide is a constant liability, barely a conduit for wealth generated from outside the city and a 30 year plan to add 500,000 more into the square mile is so flawed as to be idiotic in view of the current dearth of infrastructure, opportunities, and law and order.

We could have advanced the state enormously these past 7 years if politicians faced reality and transparency. Political theatre for party interests became the governance instead of community values and we have all those billion dollar grandiosities from one member of the junta to the next ,yet all the while the cost of Government has eroded the revenue by another $2.9 billion,” lost from investments”…and there are still 6 forms for applications to school card instead of one….and, more than $174 million in unpaid fines from over 500,000 social delinquents that cannot be collected. The record speaks the truth, how sad this is for 600 Bridgestone employees and their families and their loss of social inclusion.
