Today I spoke to Margy Osmond, CEO of Tourism and Transport Forum, asking for an $854m JobKeeper-style scheme to support its worst-affected workers from tonight's budget. Listen below to our discussion.  

Tonight's federal budget will reveal all, however, the peak body for Australian tourism, transport, and aviation sectors, Tourism, and Transport Forum (TTF) said the government's confusing plan to reopen the country and keep to vaccination deadlines has been devastating. The peak body is now calling for an $854m JobKeeper-style scheme to support 71, 000 of the worst-hit workers. All will be revealed tonight but will it be what is desperately needed for the Australian tourism, transport, and aviation sectors?
