Summer Series – Australia’s growing wages crisis with Sally McManus [webinar]

featuring Ebony Bennett and Jim Stanford

Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars in 2021. A fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work was an essential element of the promise of Australia. The last 30 years have seen a dramatic shift of the share of Australia’s prosperity going to profit and away from working people. Australians are facing a wages crisis, and Government actions and inactions are making this problem worse. Join ACTU Secretary Sally McManus as she outlines the reasons why, and the way back for working people to once again be at the heart of a strong economy.
