A basic wage paid to every Australian. If you choose to work, you keep the basic wage and the money you earn is additional. Finally producing true equality for all.

The universal wage would mean there would be no need for centrelink or reporting or the over complicated payment systems. It would transform the tax system and help to remove some of the governments red tape.By encouraging more people to enter the work force as they will not lose the basic wage just be topping it up, it will kickstart the Australian economy. The basic wage would allow every Australia to be finally equal.
