The announcement today that Woolworths intends to offer free heath checks is another example of why we need legislation to stop the growth of the supermarket duopoly in Australia. Indeed, politicians need to legislate to force a reduction of their market share.
Bob Katter was on TV tonight listing the businesses closed brown by the supermarkets. He included newsagents in his list. While I Tweeted Bob (@RealBobKatter) to say we’re not dead yet, newsagents and every other small business owner in Australia needs to lobby their local politicians to call for legislation reining in Coles and Woolworths.
Enough is enough. We have to fight for our businesses, our families, our employees and ur communities.
