Wesfarmers CEO, Rob Scott, has called on governments to cut payroll taxes in place of extending JobKeeper:
“It [JobKeeper] is a very expensive program for taxpayers, so longer-term we need to look at what we can do to encourage job growth and stimulate investment”…
Explaining his opposition to the payroll tax, he argued that “to have a tax that is levied against jobs seems to be working against what we’re trying to achieve, which is creating jobs for Australians.
