Olivia Newton-John was a fierce and inspirational advocate for breast cancer research and early detection, while battling cancer of her own three times. Her legacy will continue through the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre, and through her music and films.

Yesterday was aged care worker day, a day to say thank you to our aged care workers. They should be recognised every day for the important work they do. That's why today we made a submission to the Fair Work Commission to support an increase in the pay of aged care workers.

Aged care workers are overworked and undervalued. That's why we're giving carers more time to care and backing a better pay for workers. Thanks to @UnitedWorkersOz workers for sharing their stories with me in Parliament today.
