You know that thing about drug testing people on welfare? This afternoon, Labor met to decide whether to back the Turnbull Government’s plans.
Huge thanks to everyone who got in touch with Bill Shorten or their local Labor MP this morning to encourage them to opposed the legislation. The awesome news is… you did it!!! Labor just announced that they will oppose Schedules 12, 13 and 14 of the Welfare Reform Bill.
This is totally worth celebrating, and it’s also just the first step in an ongoing campaign. The next step will be to convince the cross-bench Senators to join Labor and the Greens in opposing the government’s plans.
For now, jump on this moment. It’s a great opportunity to convince a friend that punishing people with substance use disorders is not the way to go. On Ch10 this morning, Dr Alex Wodak did a great job of explaining what’s wrong with the government’s plans.
Go ahead and share it on social, and don’t forget to include a comment celebrating the progress of this campaign.
