Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese has vowed under a Labor government there would be a “strong economy” which would focus on growing productivity.
He said the government was “treading water” – questioning its plans to “get better cooperation between unions and business” and to invest in infrastructure on the basis of boosting productivity.
“We will have a policy that will be about growth of our economy but will also be about sharing that growth as well. At the moment, we have an economy that isn’t working for people,” Mr Albanese said during a press conference on Sunday.
“We will have a strong economy. We will look at growing productivity because productivity is the way that you can grow both profits and wages.”
