Activist Power (½) Hour

We're coming together on Friday for an Activist Power (½) Hour - an opportunity to quickly take action in a physically distant (yet still social) way! We'll be calling and tweeting at Treasurer Josh Frydenberg to extend JobKeeper, as well as sharing the message with our family and friends.

The excuse all along from the Morrison government has been that "we have to draw the line somewhere" on JobKeeper. Meanwhile they've excluded millions of casual and migrant workers, many with nowhere else to turn for support. We have JobKeeper in the first place because so many workers stood up online and demanded the Government announce it.

The $60 billion underspend announcement on Friday afternoon leaves Treasurer Josh Frydenberg with no excuses. With the stroke of a pen, he can extend the JobKeeper scheme to the casual and migrant workers who desperately need it. Right now!
