SHADOW MINISTER FOR THE NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME.
SHADOW MINISTER FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICES.
MEMBER FOR MARIBYRNONG.
We will fight for a fairer deal and better services for the most vulnerable Australians.
Bill Shorten and Labor.
A Fair Go For Australia.
What motivates me?
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.
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.
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.
