South Australian Greens today expressed their great sadness for the thousands of hard-working South Australians who now face the loss of their livelihoods in the wake of the announcement that Holden will cease manufacturing cars in South Australia by 2017.
Students at country schools will continue to be disadvantaged if the Gonski school funding scheme is not adequately implemented, the Senate has resolved today.
In a motion put by Australian Greens spokesperson for schools Senator Penny Wright, it was confirmed extra funding was need for kids in country schools to reach the same level as city students.
South Australian Greens Senators Sarah Hanson-Young and Penny Wright have expressed their sympathies for the families that will be affected by Holden's closure and have called for the development of a sustainable manufacturing future for the state.
"The Greens are calling for a multi-party, multi-stakeholder summit to develop a sustainable manufacturing future for South Australia," Senator Hanson-Young said.
