Morrison is missing in action on…

Real wage cuts ✂

Under Morrison, the cost of living is outpacing wage growth. Australian workers are more than $800 worse off last year than they were in 2020.

Cost of living crisis 🏠

You can’t fix the cost of living crisis without lifting wages. In 2021, the cost of living went up by between 2.6% and 3.4%, the worst increases in years.

Secure jobs 🔒

Big business has more power than ever to force workers into unstable, insecure jobs. Morrison has made it easier, impacting one in four workers in Australia.

Anti-corruption watchdog 💰

Another three years have gone by with no action on an independent anti-corruption commission.

Vaccine Rollout 💉

It was a race, and Morrison’s vaccine “strollout” was responsible for extended lockdowns across Australia.

Working women👩‍⚕‍

Women in Australia are less safe, and less economically secure under Morrison.

Rapid antigen tests 🐀

Didn’t order enough and refused to make them free and accessible.

Floods ⛈

Late in providing assistance, refused to meet with victims.

Bushfires 🏝

Went to Hawaii while the country burned.

Aged care 👵

Missing in action on royal commission recommendations and raising wages of aged care workers.
