Bill Shorten and Labor.
We'll put people first.

What motivates me?

People.

Labor represents people, middle and working class people - people who otherwise would not have their voices properly heard.

People who aspire for a good education for their children, a secure job, decent health care and dignity in retirement

A Shorten Labor Government will stand up for middle and working class families across Australia.

Growing up in the suburbs, I watched as my mum made sacrifices.

She saved to put my twin brother and I through school and herself through university.

She made sacrifices to pay for the things that are important.

Things like health, education, and a good job.

That’s why I have spent my adult life standing up for working people, and I always will.

I won’t stand by while Mr Turnbull’s Liberals have policies that will cost families more while 1 in 5 big businesses pay zero tax.

Mr Turnbull has made a choice to cost families more and put big business first.

Labor has made a choice too.

We’ll Put People First.



Your Child, Our Future - Innovation through Education

When mum passed away - I remembered how hard she worked for me to have the best education. I want the same for my kids - and everyone else’s too.

Labor’s “Your Child. Our Future” will deliver the most significant improvement in school education in Australia for a generation

A strong focus on every single child’s needs;

More individual attention for students;

Better trained teachers.

More targeted resources and better equipped classrooms; and

More support for students with special learning needs.

Every school – and every child - will benefit - Government, Independent or Catholic

Bill Shorten husband and dad (and dog owner)

As much as I love my job, the best thing about my life is being a husband and being a dad.

I know that’s how it is for millions of other Australians too.

Chloe Shorten interviews Bill Shorten

I have been travelling around Australia conducting Town Hall Meetings - asking people about their lives, their communities and the issues that really matter to them.

When my wife Chloe was in Darwin with me recently attending a Town Hall meeting in Fannie Bay, Chloe turned the tables on me - asking me a series of questions.

I hope you enjoy the video.

A Shorten Labor Government will be about health, jobs and education.

A Shorten Labor Government will be about putting people first.
