GDP stats released today show that big business and employers are continuing to enjoy significant growth in their profit margins, while working people watch their wages go backwards.

Working people’s share of overall income has fallen 0.3% in the last year, and more than 2% over the last couple of years.

The Abbott/Turnbull/Morrison Government has served big business at every opportunity, at the expense of securing fair pay rises for working people.
