In 2017 the Care and Support Workers Settlement Bill passed to redress the undervaluation of about 55,000 predominantly female aged-care and disability workers. Over a five year period, the bill seeks to support the principle that men and women should be paid the same for doing different jobs that are of equal value.

To support the transition of aged care facilities to achieve the principles of pay equality and improved elderly care, for 2019 we will focus our capital expenditure funding to assist the elderly.
