Now South Australia being hit hard it seems....and no longer just Teys with JBS Australia also job cutting at South Australian abattoirs....
How long will it take for the LE trade to bleed abattoirs dry? Is it too far back to remember that the ultimate collapse of the northern abattoirs was due to live export....and when the northern live export trade itself collapsed in 2011....there was nowhere to go.
The Australian domestic and export meat market are worth way more to the Australian economy than LE (in 2014, live export was worth $734 million and meat export was worth $9.4 billion). Are politicians, federal and state, really going to sit back and watch LE trash the economy?
