Job Security – MP voting records

Too many workers have an insecure, unreliable job. Workers in this country used to have secure work they could count on but the Federal Government keeps putting big business ahead of them.

In March 2021 the law changed again, making it easier for big business to casualise permanent work. At the same time, Federal Liberal and National Party MPs voted against job new laws to stamp out wage theft.

The Liberal and National Party MPs votes have protected the business model of labour hire companies who pay lower wages and still deny many of their workers basic rights like sick pay and holidays. Recent information tabled in the Parliament shows that in the mining industry labour hire casuals are paid an average $30.00 per hour less than permanent miners (source: Coal Mining Industry (long Service Leave Funding) Corporation).  

Does your MP support secure jobs?

The Morrison Government can change laws to make jobs more reliable and secure. But instead, they’re choosing to support big business and multinational corporations.
