Australian businesses have wasted no time signing up to the federal government’s new stimulus measures.
It’s understood over 110,000 businesses have signed up since the announcement of the $130 billion plan yesterday afternoon.
The unprecedented measures mean employers will receive $1500 per fortnight for each employee they’re able to keep on.
It’ll apply to full and part time workers, as well as sole traders and casuals who’ve been on the books for 12 months or more.
New Zealanders on temporary working visas are also included.
