Why the Greens are pushing for ‘billionaires’ to hand back JobKeeper payments
The Greens are calling on Australia’s big corporations who made profits during the pandemic to hand back the money they received in JobKeeper payments.
Adam Bandt told Neil Mitchell it wasn’t fair that “billionaires made out like bandits” while many Australians struggled.
“JobKeeper was designed to keep people in work and keep struggling businesses afloat,” he said.
“But companies and big corporations and billionaires that have made excessive profits and paid themselves bonuses clearly didn’t need it and we are saying they should pay it back.”
