1. Aged care pay rise axed
Thousands of aged care workers will miss out on an expected pay rise after the Federal Government dumped a $1.2 billion fund set up by Labor.
The Workforce Compact would have given workers a 1 per cent pay rise on top of award increases.
The Government halted the scheme in September and yesterday dumped the fund altogether.
It comes days after a $300 million fund to give pay rises to childcare workers was axed.
