I’ve spent my whole adult life standing up for the pay and conditions of working Australians — and I’m not about to stop now.
No matter what Tony Abbott and the Liberals throw at us, Labor’s record stands proud against WorkChoices.
At the Beaconsfield mine disaster I saw first-hand how important workplace safety is. And as Parliamentary Secretary, I fought for the National Disability Insurance Scheme. I want to keep on building on that important work and form the next Government.
Telling Australians about Labor’s positive plan for the future, compared to Tony Abbott’s plans to drag us back to the past, is important if we want to win the next election. That’s why I’ve recorded a quick message about my vision for Australia: and as a dedicated Labor supporter, I wanted you to see it first.
Can you watch and share my message to every Australian that I’m ready to stand up for Australia’s future?
Tony Abbott and the Liberals had a red hot go this week at trying to distract us from what they’ve really been up to. But Tony Abbott’s Royal Commissions won’t make us forget his attacks on Medicare, his plans for $100,000 degrees, cuts to pensions, and his bizarre war on renewable energy.
If Tony Abbott wants us to focus on Labor’s record of standing up for the pay and conditions of working people, instead of the lies he told to get into office or his $80 billion in cuts to schools and hospitals, then so be it.
But I want Australians to know I am more determined than ever to stand up for a future that makes good schools, good hospitals and good jobs accessible to every Australian.
Thanks for standing with me on this,
