The 2012–2013 Budget – Australian Government


The Federal Government has pledged to deliver a surplus in the 2012 budget, a promise that is likely to mean widespread cuts across government agencies, including to aspirational IT projects. The government is likely to lose a big voter base due to these cuts  to decrease pay rises in government jobs and culling of jobs which can be seen with a increase in union protests for pay rises all over Australia.
