Local jobs for local workers
Labor will build local, buy local, and employ local for government projects to deliver more jobs and opportunities in outer suburban and regional areas.
A Shorten-Labor Government will:
Create 3,700 SA jobs – by building the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme
Restore penalty rates – to deliver fair pay for 129,172 South Australian workers
Use Australian grade steel – when building public infrastructure projects
Protect local manufacturers – by taking action against illegal dumping of cheap foreign products
Close the gender pay gap – by forcing big business to report on their pay gap publicly
Crack down on the abuse of 457 visas – by requiring positions to be advertised in Australia for local workers first
Make multinationals pay their fair share – by closing the loopholes exploited by multinationals and stop profits being stashed away in tax havens
