Our Agriculture and Rural Matters Team is well underway but looking for a couple of new members too.
Here’s the deal. Our policies are based on very sound principles but it’s now time to turn these principles into platforms, ie, a set of practical actions that should be taken by government.
Here’s what that involves
- Doing research on the current state of play
- Building an evidence base for the change that is needed
- Turning this into a platform for the next Federal election
- Writing posts for the website and other social media
We need people with knowledge and experience in these areas but there is also a place for people who are good at writing and research.
It’s a job with no pay but hey, we are all volunteers here at the Democrats.
Here is what those portfolios cover:
|Education||Schools, universities and TAFE, preschool, and childcare||Issues such as: school funding, overseas student income, tertiary fees|
|Social Services||Welfare, employment, services||Issues such as: RoboDebt, Covid-related JobSeeker/Keeper payments, NDIS, Centrelink|
