No Jab, No Pay, introduced in 2015, has helped Australia have one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, with new figures showing we have surpassed the all-important 95% mark.
We make things in Australia, and we make them well. At the Volvo and Mack factory in Wacol, southwest of Brisbane, they’ve been proudly making trucks for Australia and beyond for almost 50 years.
Our new tax incentive for new investment has meant a surge of new orders, which will be keeping these workers at this plant very busy this year.
Each and every truck that rolls off the assembly line proudly wears the Australian made logo and because of their continued investment they employ more than 1,400 people and support 90 local manufacturing suppliers, some of whom I met today.
Our modern manufacturing strategy is all about supporting business to continue to invest in making things in Australia and ensuring there's a big future for manufacturing in this country.
Around 90% of the 1.3m Australians who lost their job or whose working hours were reduced to zero at the start of the crisis are now back at work.
"Our Government is all about jobs, jobs and more jobs and delivering support to Australians through our economic recovery plan that focuses on practical things to drive our recovery from this #COVID19 recession." - Scott Morrison (ScoMo)
“We are on your side. If you have a go in this country you’ll get a go. That’s what fairness in Australia means. My ambition is for an even stronger Australia – to keep our economy strong, to keep Australians safe and to keep Australians together.”
