Questions without Notice: JobKeeper Payment (18 Jun 2020)

“My question is to the Treasurer. I refer to reports in today's The West Australian that the Treasurer is holding dinners with backbenchers to decide which workers will be kicked off JobKeeper before September. The government excluded millions from JobKeeper from the start and has already kicked off thousands more. Who's next?”

Questions without Notice: Employment (18 Jun 2020)

“My question is to the Prime Minister. Under this Prime Minister, Australia has entered its first recession in three decades. Some 835,000 Australians have lost their jobs since March. How many unemployed Australians don't have a job because the Prime Minister deliberately excluded them from JobKeeper?”
