My speech in Parliament on the Gender Pay Gap - 10 September, 2018

I spoke in parliament in recognition of the women of Calwell, and of the wider Australian community, who work in undervalued traditional female dominated industries such as early learning, aged care, health and disability care. 


These jobs are the backbone of our country, they provide for our vulnerable Australians, and they care for our needy. They support our young and they look after our sick. A Shorten Labor Government will ensure early childhood educators are treated with fairness and decency, are recognised as a profession and are paid their fair due.

Question is, will this Government do the same?
