Video Message by Anthony Albanese on Aged Care Employee Day
7 August 2020
On this Aged Care Employee Day, I want to say, on behalf of the Australian Labour Party, thank you for the tremendous work that you do.
We’ve known for some time, which has been exposed by the Royal Commission, just how tough your job is. We know that you’re underpaid, and you’re understaffed, and Labour knows that Australia needs to do much better.
But on this, your day, I just want to say simply: thank you for what you do for your fellow Australians at a time in their life where they’re vulnerable, where they need support, and where they need a little bit of love. And you do it through the work you do every single day. Thanks.
