LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has welcomed Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s $130 billion plan to save jobs with a new $1500 a fortnight wage subsidy in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s crucial Queenslanders have jobs and job security and the Federal Government’s new wage subsidy will help people continue to get paid,” Ms Frecklington said.
“The Federal Government’s new measures are both an economic lifeline for workers and businesses and financial relief for struggling families.
“Losing a job puts enormous pressure on families, especially when they are wondering how they’re going to put food on the table and pay the bills.
“Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s new stimulus package shows how good economic management creates the capacity to deliver action and support jobs.
“I welcome the new measures that will save jobs and keep Queenslanders out of the unemployment queues.”
