All they want for us is to give credit to them for what they do, the contribution they make to our economy and community. And we want to encourage them to be proud of what they do as they should be.
The more Labor talks about the important role they play in the economy, and how important their jobs are to their own financial security and the financial security of their families, then the better we will do out there in the electorate and in the marketplace.
