๐Ÿ‘‰ Subsidise half the wages of 117,000 apprentices in small businesses

๐Ÿ‘‰ Provide one-off $750 payments to more than six million Australians to spend in our economy now (almost two and a half million pensioners will receive this support)

๐Ÿ‘‰ Provide direct cash support of up to $25,000 for small and medium-sized businesses โ€“ which employ over seven million Australians โ€“ to boost their cash flow

๐Ÿ‘‰ Back businesses to keep investing by increasing tax incentives to help them buy new equipment now.
