Labor not for turning on super changes

Despite mounting evidence of the devastating impact Labor’s franking tax changes will have in slashing the income of nearly a million senior Australians, Bill Shorten has declared Labor is “not for turning” and his Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen has dismissively said “they’re entitled to vote against us”.
