My question is to the Prime Minister. The leaked draft statement from the Business Council reveals that big business wouldn't even commit to 'increase wages when the conditions are right'. Given that over the last two years wages have grown by only four per cent while company profits have increased by 32 per cent, has the Prime Minister had any discussions with big business about just how much more profit they need before they will give a fair share to their workers?
