Labor's focus getting wages 'moving again' as businesses raise concerns over IR bill

Business groups are waging open warfare against Labor’s plans to push through major workplace relations changes before Christmas.

Labor MP Josh Burns says businesses are entitled to raise concerns, but the government’s industrial relations bill will get wages moving again.

“What we’re going to do and what we’re focused on is getting the wages for Australians moving again,” he told Sky News Australia.

“It’s exactly what we were elected to do, it’s what Labor governments do, and for too long, we’ve had stagnant wages in this country.”
