Bill Shorten's false claims about so-called insecure work lie in tatters today, following an analysis published by the independent Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO). 

The PBO’s independent analysis shows the proportion of Australian workers without paid leave entitlements - a common proxy for the size of the casual workforce - has remained steady at around 20 per cent for the last two decades. 

And the share of Australians who are self-employed has also declined over the same period.  

In other words, contrary to Bill Shorten’s frequent but ill-founded accusations, there is no evidence of growing casualisation in Australia’s jobs market.  

Bill Shorten and the ACTU should stop telling lies and frightening people about the labour market and let the Coalition Government get on with implementing its plan for a strong economy, which has already led to the creation of more than a million jobs in less than five years.
