Statement from ACTU Secretary Sally McManus:
Scott Morrison is Australia’s biggest fan of failed trickle-down economics.
As Treasurer he presided over record low wage growth, saw inequality go to 70-year highs and watched on as 40 percent of Australians were pushed into insecure work.
He was behind the failed corporate tax handout that sought to take billions from pensions, hospitals and schools to feed big business greed.
He voted eight times to cuts to penalty rates, he slashed funding to schools and hospitals, and he voted to establish the politicised ABCC and ROC to harass and pursue working people’s representatives.
Working people will defeat Prime Minister Morrison and his failed government at the next election.
