The 2015-16 Budget is an important opportunity for the Coalition Government to learn from the mistakes of the past year and begin to repair some of the damage it has caused.

It has an opportunity to offer a Budget that has broad public support, and which addresses some of the key economic challenges we face as a nation in a global environment that places a premium on the capacity of nations like Australia to compete on the basis of skills, scientific research and new technology.

This submission focuses on the quantity and quality of jobs.

Finding work, remaining in work and being paid a fair wage are among the chief concerns of millions of Australian families.

They will welcome the Budget to the extent it helps them address these concerns.
