Tell Bill: Tassie needs more Centrelink jobs
Our Tassie community is hurting from the Turnbull Government’s attacks on Centrelink.
Calls go unanswered, people have been harassed with robodebt letters, and pensioners have been waiting up to six months for their payment to be processed. Our community deserves better.
Instead of employing the people needed to do the job properly, the Turnbull Government has cut more than 6000 permanent jobs from Centrelink. They are selling it off brick by brick to multinational corporations like Serco instead of investing in local jobs.
Right now, we have an opportunity to ask Labor to offer a strong alternative and commit to a better future for Tassie jobs and services. This month there will be a by-election in Braddon, where we know this is a huge issue.
Send an email to Bill Shorten and Labor candidate for Braddon Justine Keay to tell them Tassie needs more Centrelink jobs
Between Devonport and Burnie there are 30 empty desks in Centrelink offices. Those are 30 jobs that could be employing local people, and 30 jobs that could be delivering much-needed services to our community.
With a tightly contested by-election just around the corner, this is your opportunity to ask Labor to deliver jobs and services for Tassie.
