Thanks to the generosity of federal government conditions of service, many permanent Canberra employees are currently entitled to salary sacrifice provisions by maximising the entitlement in the form of acquiring their own motor vehicle.
Now here’s the environmental rub. An incentive exists for those entitled to this condition of service to reside a long way from their place of work. By taking full advantage of owning, maintaining and running a vehicle for thousands of kilometres per year, this is at direct and great cost to our environment. In any case the incentive is not fincancially successful for owners unless thousands and thousands of kilometres are completed on our roads.
For goodness sake of our environment and ever diminishing energy availability, this condition of service caper should be thwarted henceforth.
What to the the Australian Greens have to say about this please?
