Aussie $ = 83 U.S cents/pennys this is down from its 98cents to the us $.
yhe that 2cent - 20 cent a $ is why.
that must be why Aussies have lower taxes aswell.

just a better system of government id say.
HEALTH CARE ........
In Australia we have universal health care
the ( PBS ) System ... pharmaceutical benefit scheme.
FREE optical, dental & medical for all Australian's for life (anywhere in the world)
So since health care is paid for by the Australian Government, it does not give business in Australia any power to cut our wages in return for health care.
In the USA health care is paid for by employers & then the employer cut wages & then has the nerve to insure their employers with a cheap 3erd world HMO so the business owner can save even more money
OH ....... & lets not forget, the business is not only paying less wages in return for 3erd world health care ........ but the business owner passes the cost on to you a 2nd time, by claiming the cost to the business of providing the health insurance, on the company's tax return, as a business expense.
Thus passing the cost back onto the tax payer anyway.
Can you say higher U.S taxes.Any nation that would give power employers to cut wages in return for health care, is just stupid.
