I've passed historic legislation in the Queensland Parliament to help ensure construction small businesses are paid in full and on time, every time.
Non-payment has plagued the industry for far too long. It's destroyed lives and businesses and torn families apart.
Only the Palaszczuk Labor Government has had the determination to make change a reality.
But those who oppose fairness in the industry won't let these new laws continue without a fight.
Tim Nicholls and the LNP have said that they are unworkable, or too complex. They have run a scare campaign about our historic reforms pushing up costs.
Everyone knows that non-payment is pushing up costs. The current system is too complex and completely unworkable if you are a subbie looking to chase what you are owed.
