The Australian Council of Trade Unions has launched a new series of TV ads ahead of the federal election featuring a cross section of society.
The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) has launched a new series of TV ads ahead of the federal election featuring working people.
The people in the campaign, who came from a cross section of society and ranged in age from 20 to 60, responded to a casting call to be interviewed about how their lives are affected by the current rules of work.
While some were actors, some were not. They all had other work and some were juggling up to five jobs.
They were asked the question: how are things going right now?
This campaign was designed to showcase the reality that many working Australians face and what the future will look if there isn't a change to the current government.
ACTU secretary Sally McManus says the campaign highlights a "truth" that the Morrison government does not appear to care about.
"The campaign shows that we have a choice about the future for working people in Australia," McManus says.
"We can continue down the low-pay, insecure American path, or we can change the Government and change the rules to win a fair go for working people."
