No Minister and No Plan for Wages Crisis

No Minister and No Plan for Wages Crisis

Scott Morrison will lose his Industrial Relations Minister at the next election which shows his Government has no plan and no commitment to address the wages crisis our country is facing.

Working people face both a wage and insecure work crisis. As wages continue to flat line and the cost of living goes up working people are barely able to keep their heads above water.

This is the fourth Minister under Abbott/Turnbull/Morrison Government to bail, which reflects the instability of the Government and their lack of commitment to address these issues.

Working people have had enough of a Government that persistently puts the needs of big business first. We need to change the rules so that working people get a fair deal: More secure jobs and pay rises.

Quotes attributable to ACTU Secretary Sally McManus:

“Kelly O’Dwyer jumping ship shows the Abbott/Turnbull/Morrison government is just unable to respond to a wage crisis – not only do they not have any answers, they cannot even keep their ministers in their roles – we’ve seen three Ministers in just over three years.

“Michaelia Cash had to be hidden and then pushed aside, Craig Laundy was a victim of the knifing of Turnbull and now Kelly O’Dwyer has thrown in the towel.

“We need a Government that is 100% committed to doing the hard work necessary to get pay rises going again and to turn around the number of insecure jobs in our country. This takes commitment and an understanding of the problems facing working Australians, the Morrison Government has neither.

”The sooner this Government is gone the better.”
