As I said yesterday, the Australian economy continues to grow, unlike many other economies around the world. More jobs are being created. A record number of Australians are in work. Wages growth in the 2018-19 financial year was the strongest it has been—2.3 per cent, above inflation at 1.6 per cent—since 2013-14, Labor's last budget year. Labor's socialist agenda is not only floundering with the Australian people; it's even floundering with the member for Port Adelaide, hardly a free-market, capitalist advocate.
