The Socialist Alliance has codified policy regarding paid parental leave in the Charter for Workers Rights and in previous conferences as follows:

From the Charter for Workers’ Rights:

To “Legislate 12 months' parenting leave fully paid by employer contributions to a publicly managed scheme; the right to return to the same job without losing seniority; and generous paid leave to allow parents to take time off work to care for sick children and attend school activities.”

From the 2004 Socialist Alliance Conference

The global refugee crisis has its roots in the wars waged by global powers for resources and territory. These conflicts have left millions of people displaced and driven hundreds of thousands to seek safety and protection in countries like Australia.

The 'taxed', the 'taxed nots' and Turnbull's class war.
