Last time under Labor, there were 50,000+ arrivals in 800+ illegal boats, costing taxpayers $16 billion.
Under Shorten, it would happen again.
Labor simply can’t be trusted to stop the boats and secure Australia’s borders.
Last month another 50,900 more jobs were created (80% full time).
Our plan for a stronger economy is working.
1 million Australian businesses – most small and family owned – will feel the crunch under Labor's higher taxes.
Small businesses can't afford Labor.
