Gillard opens campaign office
Deputy Labor Leader Ms Julia Gillard visited the Peninsula on August 29 to officially open the campaign and information office of Labor Candidate for Robertson Ms Belinda Neal.
Ms Gillard said her main job during the visit was to draw people's attention to the Federal Governments "unfair" workplace laws which would "reduce the quality of family life and working conditions".
Ms Gillard said that Work Choices had taken away the balance.
"It's time this stale, tired and old government was gone," Ms Gillard said.
Ms Gillard said it was a fight to make sure workers got "simple decency".
She also said that the Federal Government wanted further labour market deregulation.
Ms Gillard said a main focus of a Labor Government would be the basic cost of living and education.
"There is a lot which can be done to lift the pressure," Ms Gillard said.
Ms Gillard also said that Labor needed to win seats like Robertson.
"We need to make sure this community gets strong representation in Canberra," Ms Gillard said.
Ms Gillard and Ms Neal then proceeded to cut the ribbon to Ms Neal's "Beautifully emblazoned" office.
