ACT NOW – SAVE Lives, SAVE Jobs, SAVE the Economy
The government must act – and act now – following the lead of the UK and New Zealand Governments with direct wage support for workers and small businesses
The SDA, ARA and Retail Industry groups are all on the same page;
Businesses and employees need money now to stay alive and to put food on the table.
This is a health as well as an economic imperative.
Direct payments now will cut Centrelink queues, reducing the risk of community transmission of Coronavirus.
A wage subsidy package will save lives!
Every day lost now will deepen the economic contraction and worsen the health of the community.
Too many businesses have already shut their doors, some forever.
Too many jobs have already been lost, many with little prospect of getting them back.
Act now and jobs and businesses will be saved, economic activity will be in better shape, health risks will be diminished, the emergency will be shorter, and the economy will be in better shape to bounce back once the crisis starts to pass.
It is time to ACT!
