Former Whitlam government minister Tom Uren has died aged 93
R.I.P. The 70s were a great time for Australians, with full employment, cheap housing, cheap healthcare, free education and a great welfare state.
The unemployment rate was low then Bookwyrm.
"In the period from the Second World War to the mid-1970s, the unemployment rate fluctuated around a longer-term average of 2 per cent, reaching as high as around 3 per cent, with a low point of around 1 per cent. "
More people working, more taxes, more revenue.
RIP Leonard Nimoy.
