Labor has committed to leaving the public service jobs in the private sector to private firms.
However, there are some caveats.
First, the Government is not leaving public servants in the public hands.
As part of the budget, the Labor Government committed to bringing back the public employment sector.
This will include bringing back a national apprenticeship scheme, which will create more than 12,000 full-time jobs for young people.
Second, the public servants will be able to choose between their jobs and a private company.
Third, the government has agreed to pay a further $1.8 billion a year to the Commonwealth over the next 10 years to ensure it is able to keep spending money on services like health, education and the arts.
In the meantime, there is a new Labor Government that is promising to create more jobs, more funding for public servants, and greater efficiency.
