Prime Minister defends ‘bullish’ budget goals
The Morrison Government’s 2021-22 budget has outlined a goal to push unemployment down to 4.5 per cent from 5.8 per cent.
Business incentives and traineeships are tipped to achieve the figure.
“That is a low figure, that is a bullish number,” Neil Breen said to Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
“Well, it’s a bold goal,” Mr Morrison responded.
“That’s what we have to do, that’s what our plan has to seek to achieve.”
Mr Morrison said the lofty goal will be a significant factor in balancing the budget.
“That’s something we can’t let go, that’s something we can’t put at risk.”
