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.
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.
Late in providing assistance, refused to meet with victims.
Went to Hawaii while the country burned.
Aged care 👵
Missing in action on royal commission recommendations and raising wages of aged care workers.

Morrison Missing: A record of his failure for working women
Scott Morrison and the Coalition Government have seriously eroded the gains we have made towards respect for women. Australian women are now less safe and economically secure than they were, and they have no national plan to fix these serious problems.
