STATEMENT: A VISION FOR A STRONGER, FAIRER AUSTRALIA

Last night Anthony Albanese provided an alternate vision for the nation to rebuild from a once-in-a-century crisis.

A vision grounded in prosperity and fairness.

In stark contrast to Tuesday night, the Opposition Leader provided a plan for a stronger and fairer nation.

A plan that creates jobs now, a plan for universal childcare, a plan to power the nation and a plan to rebuild Australian manufacturing.

A record one million are unemployed with another 400,000 set to join the jobless queue by the end of the year, Australia must emerge from this crisis a better, fairer nation.

Recessions have devastating effects on people, families and communities like ours. Jobs are lost, businesses close, livelihoods destroyed through bankruptcies, families break down, and people are forced into homelessness.

History tells us that recessions are deeper and unemployment queues are longer when governments get the recovery effort wrong.

Anthony Albanese and Federal Labor has provided the nation with a genuine plan to beat this recession and a vision to build a future where no-one is held back, and no-one is left behind.
