Everywhere I go, people tell me the economy isn't working for everyday Australians.
The cost of living keeps increasing, and wages just aren't keeping up.
Big cuts to health, aged care, education and TAFE are hurting people.
I want to get our country’s priorities back on track by properly funding our schools and hospitals, and creating real opportunities for apprentices and working people.
My Labor team is working hard on our plan for a fair go for you and your family, and a fair go for all Australians.
I want to be a Prime Minister who passes on a better deal to the next generation.
That's why a Shorten Labor Government will:
Invest in our schools. Restore funding cut by the Liberals & Nationals, to ensure every community has quality schools.
Ease pressure on family budgets. End the Medicare freeze and give tax breaks to workers, not the top end of town.
Stand up for workers. Reverse cuts to penalty rates and crack down on abuse of labour hire and 457 visas.
Fix our hospitals. Invest in more beds, doctors and nurses.
Invest in cheaper, cleaner energy. Deliver 50 per cent of power from renewables by 2030.
Build a strong economy that works for us all. Build new infrastructure and give workers a fair go.
