Twitter Media Studio : Under the Liberals: billions cut from TAFE and training, skills shortages, and 140,000 apprentices and trainees gone.

I really wanted the Prime Minister to have a plan to fix this in his speech today, but he didn’t. That’s not JobMaker, it’s JobFaker. #NPC

iPhone : Three years ago our First Nations peoples called for constitutional recognition and a voice to parliament. They are still waiting.

To move forward together, and continue to heal the wounds of the past, we should establish a Makarrata Commission.

iPhone : Today is National Sorry Day, which commemorates the ongoing pain of the Stolen Generations.

Saying sorry is important, of course, but we match our words with deeds.

Sorry is also a promise: to fight racism wherever it lurks, and to never inflict such hurt again.

iPhone : Morrison: if you dont look after the growth in your economy, then you cant guarantee any of the things youve talked about

Just a reminder *2019* was the worst year for growth since the 1990s recession

iPhone : I guess Dnata workers, Virgin workers, arts workers, events workers and casuals don’t make the Team Australia boat go faster for Scott Morrison #npc

Twitter Web App : These stories are great, but imagine if the arts workers, uni staff and casuals who are excluded from JobKeeper could share similar stories too. #NPC

iPhone : Close to half of apprentices and trainees aren’t finishing their training.

Is it any wonder our nation has a shortage of bricklayers, plumbers, hairdressers, panelbeaters, and other critical tradies?

iPhone : After nearly seven years of the Liberals, $3 billion has been cut from TAFE and training.

Australia has fewer apprentices and trainees today than when the Liberals first came to office.

140,000 apprentices and trainees have been lost.

iPhone : If the Government proposes some sensible changes to the training system, Labor will support them. But Scott Morrison’s announcement today is no solution to the tradie crisis he created.

iPhone : After he’s created such a mess, what’s Scott Morrison’s solution? A phony announcement with no extra funding, no timeframe, and basically no detail.


iPhone : The Liberals have spent seven years creating a tradie crisis in Australia – with $3 billion cut from TAFE and training, widespread skills shortages, and 140,000 apprentices and trainees gone.

Twitter Web App : Eden-Monaro deserves someone who will stand up for them, even when the going gets tough. #auspol twitter.com/KristyMcBain/s…

Twitter Web App : We look forward to giving the Treasurer the opportunity to appear and explain the $60b JobKeeper error. Any day. Any time. twitter.com/helenhainesind…

Twitter Web App : Scott Morrison’s $60 billion JobKeeper stuff up means there is absolutely no excuse to deny support to university workers. #auspol NTEU National NTEU New South Wales
