Questions without Notice: Taxation (28 Jun 2018)

“Given that profitable companies are sacking workers and given that even business won't commit to creating jobs if they get the Turnbull government's corporate tax cut, isn't it clear that the Turnbull government will say and do anything to get their way and hand $80 billion to big business?”

Questions without Notice: Taxation (28 Jun 2018)

“Despite making a $4 billion profit last year, Telstra has announced that it will cut 8,000 jobs. When Telstra has made a $4 billion profit, does the Turnbull government really expect the 8,000 Telstra workers to believe they'd still have a job if the Turnbull government got its way and handed another $80 billion to big business?”

Questions without Notice: Taxation (28 Jun 2018)

“My question is to the minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. Despite making a $794 million profit last year, Optus sacked 400 workers. When Optus has made a $794 million profit, does the Turnbull government really expect the 400 former Optus workers to believe they'd still have a job if the Turnbull government got its way and handed another $80 billion to big business?”
