Payouts Proceeding Apace
The federal government says that 40 percent of the liquidated workers from LyFC have received their buyouts. As that number rises, it would seem decreasingly likely that there will be any sustained pressure on the government from the SME; indeed, hitting 40 percent is probably a big reason why there has been less noise on the matter in recent days. Of course, the budget debate dominating the news also helps.
