"The gender gap is currently 17 per cent which means Australian women are effectively working two months of every year for free. The Liberals have ignored the gender pay gap, supported cuts to penalty rates that disproportionately harm women and refused to support increases to the minimum wage. If elected, in a Shorten Labor Government I will be a part of national push to help close the gender pay gap."
