Seeking a fair go on Budget night

In this Eureka Street article by Frank Brennan SJ, CEO of Catholic Social Services Australia, he explains that Tuesday evening’s Budget announcement provides an opportunity for the government to “create a clear narrative as to how it will achieve equitable and sustainable growth”.
 
He goes on to say: “The federal Budget is not merely an economic statement. It is a social compact. It declares the government's priorities and displays its vision for Australia. Or at least, it should. … [the] government has a duty to ensure the means to enable people to live with dignity when through no fault of their own they cannot find a job or undertake training.
 
“This year's Budget is an opportunity for government to commit itself to mutual respect, equality and a fair go for the present generation of 'haves' and 'have nots', and for future generations whose financial burdens will be eased should the deficit be reduced and should growth be sustained.”
