Defending Public ServicesCuts_hurt_everyone_web_medium

Just over halfway through its first term and the O’Farrell government has already announced that 15,000 jobs will cut from the NSW public service. It has never been willing or able to explain how these 15,000 job cuts will affect NSW communities. The truth is, they don’t know.

Across the public service, positions are being cut indiscriminately to meet the 15,000 target. The NSW Government appears to have no concept of the value of the expertise, knowledge and relationships that NSW is losing.

There is no coherent plan in place to account for where the cuts should come from or how they will deliver savings. There is no transparency around the impacts of cuts on service delivery.

Our politicians seem to think that if they don’t tell us where the jobs will be cut from, we won’t notice that we’ve lost them. They should think again.
