With university workers cut off from JobKeeper, world-leading universities across the country are announcing thousands of job losses.

It’s one of our biggest national exports, contributing over $40 billion to our economy and supporting over 250,000 full time jobs.

University research and education is essential to our future and our recovery.

Unfortunately, the Morrison Government hasn’t caught on. Instead, the Minister for Education is making degrees more expensive.

If nothing changes, universities will be forced to massively cut their research and course offerings. That means tens of thousands more difficult redundancies in 2021 and beyond.

Join my call for a crisis support package to the university sector protect jobs and to make sure that student debt doesn’t become unaffordable.
