The NSW Coalition budget on June 21 locks in a wage cut for public sector workers, brings in a new land tax and further entrenches the privatisation of transport, reports Jim McIlroy.

Proposals by the NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) to raise public transport fares on the Opal Card system covering public buses, trains and ferries are facing strong opposition from pensioners, retirees and the general travelling public. The Combined Pensioners and Superannuants Association said the government would face a major backlash if it decided to tighten the eligibility or raise the daily cap on the cost of travel for seniors.
