Why your council rate goes up every year

Perhaps this is why Australia needs more migrant workers. Here is a picture of four workers standing by a patch of wet cement. They might be having a field conference, guarding the wet cement, or simply waiting for the cement to dry. Another worker, not in the picture, was sitting inside a truck. It is no wonder that the council rate always goes up faster than inflation. (If this is your own home, you will just need to pay for one tradie to come and lay the cement all by himself.)
