The ABC reports Ted Quinlan’s identified the source of all the ACT Budget’s problems.
ACT Treasurer Ted Quinlan says public servants taking early retirement have contributed to the parlous state of the territory’s Budget.
Mr Quinlan predicts the Budget will return to surplus in coming years but concedes superannuation will be a growing impost.
So all you public servants out there reading this, on behalf of the Treasurer and whoever takes over his job I beg you please do not take early retirement. Just keeping working until you drop dead at your desk, ok? Otherwise your payouts and superannuation are going to bankrupt our beloved city and then where will we all be?
