Australians rely on an active public service to provide everyday support and protect our interests. Public servants invented wifi, staff Medicare and Centrelink offices and provide the weather forecast.
But our world-class public service is under threat.
Right now public servants are struggling to deal with billion dollar Budget reductions and thousands of job cuts and the Turnbull Government is determined to hack even deeper.
With the public sector already under pressure, cuts of this scale will severely damage public services in Australia.
