GOVERNMENT MISLEADS AUSTRALIANS ON WAGE THEFT
Today in Question Time I asked the Minister For Industrial Relations:
"Why did he advise the House that the former Labor government cut funding to the Fair Work Ombudsman by 17 per cent when in fact it increased funding by 96 per cent? Why did he also claim staff were cut by 20 per cent when in fact staffing rose by 97 per cent?"
AAP FactCheck examined Minister Porter’s claims after he first made them in Parliament last week. It found his claims were “all false”.
Despite this, Minister Porter doubled down on his discredited claims today.
Minister Porter has been caught out misleading Australians. This Government needs to be more honest.
