Twenty years ago today, 250,000 people walked across Sydney Harbour Bridge in support of reconciliation. I was one of them. Our cause is no less urgent now than it was two decades ago. Because a country that is not truly reconciled is not truly whole.https://picsoci.com/tweet/NfTlsJ08mh
Inspired by the resilience of the farming & small biz families
@AlboMP & I spent time with today in Narooma, Cobargo, Quaama & Bega, & by the dedication of @KristyMcBain who seeks to represent them as part of our @AustralianLabor team in the nation’s parliament #auspolhttps://picsoci.com/tweet/IoSu7FjMcN
Despite everything, Tamara and Craig can’t get support because beef and sheep farmers aren’t eligible for assistance grants while dairy farmers are. Surely we can do better than this – for this family, and all those who are still struggling in the aftermath of bushfires.
This small business in Narooma has 40 employees, but only 7 are eligible for JobKeeper. Those on JobKeeper are earning much more than they normally would. Everyone else is receiving nothing. Wage subsidies are a good idea being badly implemented – and it’s impacting people.https://picsoci.com/tweet/4Lr7dc9KuW
