Morrison to slash 3,000 jobs and keep outsourcing services to top end of town
The peak body of working people has condemned the Morrison government’s attempt to hide the destruction of 3,000 jobs in the public sector in its election eve costings.
This compares with the Labor commitment to hire an additional 1,200 DHS workers and deliver real wage increases as per their commitments during the election.
As stated by ACTU Secretary Sally McManus:
“The Morrison government has spent its entire time in office undermining our public services by outsourcing jobs and services to the big consulting firms and their mates at the top end of town.
“As the election campaign comes to a close we now see that a re-elected Morrison government will smash another 3,000 jobs ripping away the livelihoods or dedicated public sector workers.
“By contrast the Labor Party has committed to real improvements in public services, increases in DHS staffing and proper wage increases following years of deliberate low wages by the Liberal/National Coalition.
“This latest attack shows the total disregard Scott Morrison and his party have for the jobs and services that so many Australian’s rely on and simply provides another reason to Change the Government on Saturday May 18th.”
