ACTU launches TV campaign commercials

  • 26 April 2022

The ACTU has launched a 30-second advertisement showing a couple worried about overdue bills who try to comfort each other, while their son struggles to do his homework in the family's living area.

"We're in a cost of living crisis," the narrator says.  "Under Scott Morrison, real wages have flat-lined and last year, for the average worker, real wages actually went backwards – over $800.  "But the cost of living is skyrocketing.

"When it comes to wages, Scott Morrison has been missing in action.  "We can't afford three more years of Scott Morrison – it's time to change the government."

The television advertising will be run in areas that have been hit particularly hard by insecure work and low-wage growth, including central Queensland and northern Tasmania.
