Construction & Industry in DANGER.
HIA starts the ball rolling with a great new website that all manufacturers, industry, builders, labourers, construction firms and the public should get behind. This is in relation to the current state of the economy, which apparently is JUST fine according to our politicians.
- This year, we'll build 25,000 less homes than we did a decade ago.
- Building and construction contracted every month for the last 34 months.
- Over 1 million Australian workers in the building and construction watch helplessly as building keeps falling, knowing their jobs are at risk.
- Severe drops in new housing have forced many manufacturing and small businesses to close with risks of extensive layoffs if the outlook does not improve.
- Taxes, levies, fees and charges account for 40% of the cost of building a new home.
- Australia will need 1.3 million new homes built by 2020. If the industry remains depressed, more than 150,000 families will miss out on a new home they've waited for.
The roofing and rollforming industry relies totally on construction, building and infrastructure to survive. The market is getting to a point where it is becoming critical. Politicians have to realise that all the current policies like NBN, Gonski, NDS, Carbon Tax, etc etc etc are costing the average Australian too much money. The politicians have to realise that the industries above are the backbone of the Australian economy and lifestyle.
Get behind this new website that allows you to send an email to your local pollie and tell them you are not happy and want a reply.

For those in the rollforming, manufacturing, roofing and construction industry consider this future forecast by Master Builders:
|NSW, QLD, WA and NT are the place you should go.|
|Amazing how everything collapsed prior to the GFC?|
Enough is enough, get onto HIA's new website HERE, and register your support. Tweet it, Facebook it, email it, blog it etc until these politicians realise that we mean business.
Update for July 2013.
- Hills sold Bailey Ladders but not Fielders or Orrcon.
- One Steel in for changes and consolidation by Arrium.
- BlueScope approach the $5.00 mark, and look to improve.
- Fletchers shares well above the $7.00 mark today.
The one fact above with HIA's new website, is this:
Taxes, levies, fees and charges account for 40% of the cost of building a new home.
This is paying for all the politicians huge wage packages, the government department employees to manage the legislation, pay the Ministers and the PM to fly all over the world and pay the Carbon Tax which has lead to increases in some manufacturing electricity bills of over 100%.
Let's protest through this new platform provided by the HIA and it's great new website.
