From the local baker or plumber to the corner laundromat, small businesses together go to make something far more valuable than anything they do or sell. They help to build local communities.
Small businesses contribute to a third of our economic activity, keep millions of Australians in jobs and are responsible for paying wages to more than half of our workforce. They are vital to our everyday lives – especially now in our economic recovery.
This year has been tough for Australia’s small businesses, and they need our support. This could be as simple as eating at or getting takeaway from a local restaurant or café, buying your mum’s next birthday gift from a local shop, or liking and leaving positive reviews on their social media pages.
There are countless small ways to support local businesses. Let’s get Australia going again. Let’s GO LOCAL FIRST.
