Download the SEP Swan How to Vote

Joe Lopez, 42, was born in Perth and raised in the working class suburb of Balga/Westminster. In 1984 he joined the Young Socialists and the Socialist Labour League, opposing from a young age the far-reaching attack on workers’ living standards carried out by the incoming Hawke Labor government. Between 1982 and 1989 Joe worked for the ANZ Bank in metropolitan and regional branches, experiencing first-hand the program of branch closures and “restructuring” enforced by Labor and the unions. Since 1990 Joe has worked as a nursing assistant at hospitals in both Sydney and Royal Perth Rehabilitation Hospital in Shenton Park.
