WORKERS UNITE

By MEL MARTIN

DIANE Johnston and Gail Kaden are scared not for themselves, but for young Australians.

And that's why they joined the droves of people who attended yesterday's National Day of Community Protest against the Federal Government's industrial relations changes.

"It won't affect us a great deal because we won't be in the workforce for that long, it's more for the next generations we're concerned about," Ms Kaden said.

"It's not a very good legacy to leave," Ms Johnston added.

"But (the turnout) shows people are becoming more aware of the issue."

Steve Klaassen from the Australian Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union and Mariusz Werstak from the Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees Association couldn't agree more.
