The government's own figures and announcements show that Lendlease has been awarded nearly $800 million in contracts this year, 2020, and it's only June. In these circumstances, why is Lendlease allowed to access the JobKeeper program to pay some 15 per cent—nearly 1,400 out of 9,200 members—of its Australian workforce when it seems flush with contracts? How do you justify this company milking taxpayers' money when it pays no corporate tax?
