Today the Morrison Government has been forced to admit it has again seriously stuffed-up the roll out of the JobKeeper program.
This is a humiliating confession that the PM and Treasurer were wrong by 3 million workers and $60 billion dollars.
This just shows that you can’t trust a hopeless Government with a good idea like wage subsidies for workers.
For weeks the Morrison Government has been telling casuals and other excluded workers that the JobKeeper program was full when in reality it was three million workers short.
After all the lectures about fiscal responsibility, Scott Morrison and Josh Frydenberg have admitted to getting their numbers wrong by $60 billion.
If they can’t get this basic maths right how can we expect them to get the recovery right?
Millions of Australians are being deliberately left out and left behind by this Morrison Government.
This kind of serious economic incompetence is a threat to jobs, the economy and the recovery.
