Interesting idea. It would be hugely popular in the electorate, especially in the marginal, outer suburban seats. Who wouldn't want a near 10% increase in their pay packet? Plus small business hate all the complex red-tape. The Government would rake in more tax, so more money to spend on election promises. Plus the Industry funds would implode, so that source of ALP funding would be gone. Genius idea from a Coalition point of view. Wouldn't affect us too much though as engaged clients are motivated to build their wealth. So most would keep contributing I suspect. Not sure it would be a good idea for the long term future of this country, but hey, it's been a long time since politicians worried about that!
