Greens leader Adam Bandt has called on the federal government to lead Australia out of the COVID-19 crisis with a bold economic plan. The Greens will outline the strategies it believes are needed for Australia to recover from COVID-19 on 18 May; its plans include the construction of 500,000 new public housing properties and $59 billion to be spent on sustainable infrastructure. The Greens would guarantee anyone under the age of 30 employment, a training place or free higher education, while they are calling for the current JobSeeker rate of $1,115 per fortnight to be retained.
