Causley rails against WorkChoices

The cousin of retiring Page MP Ian Causley is actively campaigning against the controversial new WorkChoices laws.

The contentious legislation has pushed Caley Causley, a 47-year-old aged care nurse from Grafton, into activism with the Your Rights At Work campaign.

The lifelong National Party supporter told The Sydney Morning Herald last week she was not involved in politics until WorkChoices made her sit up and take notice.

Growing up on a property you follow family tradition I wasnt politically involved until this issue came along and I realised it gave the boss more bullets to fire at us, she said. I poured beer 10 years ago and earned more than I do now looking after our old people.

Caley Causley made her public speaking debut this year at a town meeting of her local Your Rights At Work group.

She told the Herald she still loved her cousin but I disagree with him and this time I cant support his mob.
