The Liberal Nationals have released a blueprint to get the Southern Metropolitan Region businesses back to work and back in business.
The new plan is centred on four pillars that will be critical to Victoria’s recovery and the survival of jobs and small businesses by helping Victorians to secure their family finances, rebuild local business, invest in health and education, and support our communities.
Victoria has been the hardest hit state in the country due to the Andrews Labor Government’s failures in hotel quarantine which caused the state’s second wave.
Small business is on its knees, with many forced to walk away from their once-thriving businesses. This is not a plan for the next election. Victorians can’t afford to wait that long.
The Liberal Nationals’ Back to Work and Back in Business is an economic recovery plan for immediate action by the Andrews Labor Government so that Victoria can rebuild from the damage done by COVID-19 to our jobs, our communities and our lives.
With Victorian Treasury forecasting that up to 325,000 jobs will be lost this year, there is no time to wait to implement these bold measures designed to reclaim our way of life and get Victoria operating as the engine-room of Australia’s economy, like it used to.
The Liberal Nationals’ Plan to get Victorians back to work includes cutting payroll tax until 30 June 2022, would establish a $1 billion fund to bring manufacturing home to Victoria, and fund ‘Road Trip for Victoria’ vouchers to stimulate Victorian tourism. Read more here.
