The sooner they implement this policy the better. The only tradies left to service us Perth city dwellers are either terribly under skilled (can't get a job in the mines), and a very small number of more mature workers, and those that think spending 50% of their time away from their families is unacceptable. Unfortunately it is the under skilled category that make up the majority of these.
