Questions without Notice: Aged Care (18 Jun 2020)

“Minister, I refer to a worksheet on the tax office website designed for high school students in years 7 to 10. Minister, using this worksheet and applying to it a residential aged-care worker working more than 30 hours per week, being paid at level 4 of the award, isn't it the case that the worker will be $260 worse off during Australia's first recession in 29 years because of your decision?”

Questions without Notice: Aged Care (18 Jun 2020)

“Minister, in your media release of 20 March 2020 you state that the retention bonus for aged-care workers is a payment of up to either $800 for direct care workers or $600 for in-home-care workers after tax. However, the fact sheet on your department's website says these payments are before tax. Minister, how can both of these be correct?”

Questions without Notice: Aged Care (18 Jun 2020)

“My question is to the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians, Senator Colbeck. Minister, is there a difference between after tax and before tax?”
