You did this.
For years, ASU members campaigned to get super working for women. And overnight the Federal Government abolished the $450 earning threshold for super!
It is because of union members Scott Morrison finally fulfilled his promise.
What this means:
Anyone earning less than $450 per month from a single employer will now receive superannuation. For casual, young, lower-income and part-time workers, this makes a huge difference to their futures.
But it isn’t over yet.
Women in Australia have been failed by our super system with 1 in 3 retiring in poverty.
To get super working for women and low paid workers, the government needs to:
- Implement the planned increase to 12%super immediately
- Close the gender super gap by paying super on paid parental leave, Government Carer and family payments.
- Enforce structures that encourage superannuation contribution sharing for single working parents.
- Fund government co-contribution top-ups for workers who are not on track for a decent retirement.
Together we can ensure working people are able to have a decent retirement,
