Better Wages and Opportunities

Labor stands for workers’ rights and better wages.

We believe everyone should have access to good, secure work that pays the bills.

That’s why Labor is delivering secure, well-paying jobs here in Queensland – and lifting wages, improving job security and working to close the gender pay gap across Australia.

We’re also investing in the skills Australia needs to drive future economic growth by providing Australians access to Fee Free TAFE, creating more university places, and tackling  skill shortages.

This is good for jobs, good for people looking to train or retrain, and good for businesses which need more skilled workers.

After nearly a decade of a Federal LNP Government which deliberately kept wages low and cut funding from TAFE and university, there’s plenty to do – but Labor will always be on the side of workers.

We can’t risk letting the LNP back in to continue their attacks on workers’ rights, wages, and education.

Stand up, join the fight, and make your voice heard – become a Labor member today.
