Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen has defended Labor’s proposal to provide early childhood educators with a taxpayer-funded pay rise, saying the policy has been costed by the Parliamentary Budget Office. Treasury Josh Frydenberg in turn has argued that the policy has been costed on giving a pay rise to 100,000 child care workers, whereas the sector employs 195,000 people. He has claimed that the policy is merely aimed at increasing union membership.
