Appointment as Shadow Minister - Terri Butler MP, Labor for Griffith

Appointment as Shadow Minister

It is an honour to be appointed as Shadow Minister for Young Australians and Youth Affairs, and Shadow Minister for Employment Services, Workforce Participation and Future of Work.
 
Young people deserve a voice in government, and I am grateful to Bill Shorten for elevating this portfolio. I am also very pleased to be succeeding my friend the Hon Ed Husic MP in the employment services, workforce participation and future of work portfolio. We are at a time of great change in the Australian economy, and coming to grips with the future of work is of crucial importance.
 
I congratulate my colleague, the Hon Linda Burney MP, on her appointment as Shadow Minister for Families and Social Services, and her elevation to Shadow Cabinet. She is a strong and empathetic leader, and our caucus is fortunate to have her.
 
I congratulate Ed on his appointment as Shadow Minister for Human Services and Shadow Minister for the Digital Economy, Senator Louise Pratt on taking up her new portfolios, and Senator Jenny McAllister on her appointment as a Shadow Assistant Minister. I look forward to continuing to work with all of them.
 
I am excited to be continuing the fight against Mr Turnbull and the LNP’s war on young people, and to be taking on new responsibilities in employment.
 
Australians are sick of Mr Turnbull’s arrogant and out-of-touch approach to employment services.
 
The PaTH program is broken, people are facing increasingly insecure work, and young people don’t know what the jobs landscape will look like for them.
 
I am pleased to be part of a strong, unified alternative government. Australians deserve better than the current government and I look forward to serving in a Shorten Labor Government.
