The Government’s JobKeeper package has left millions of Australian workers behind.
Casual workers, disability workers, workers at schools and universities and those on temporary visas all miss out on the $1500 a fortnight JobKeeper payment.
This not only hurts those workers, but also business owners who will lose contact with valuable staff.
The Labor Party has consistently argued for an expansion of the scheme and when the JobKeeper legislation was brought before parliament gave the Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg, the power to extend the payment to workers who are missing out.
Josh Frydenberg can literally do this with the stroke of his pen.
Please sign the petition below so I can ask the Treasurer to change his mind and include those workers who desperately need the government’s support at this time.
