Recently released AUWU/Per Capita Report "WORKING IT OUT: Employment Services in Australia" condemns Jobactive system and the appalling state of employment services in Australia
"This report collected the voices of unemployed workers all across the country, who shared their experiences of the punitive and taxing Jobactive system.
Unsurprisingly, the report found that Jobactive's harsh compliance measures aren't making it any easier for unemployed workers to find work--in fact, most job seekers we consulted with said it made it harder.
This is a stirring condemnation of the employment service industry, from the people who understand it the best--and whose voices can no longer be ignored by those in power."
#jobactive needs a complete overhaul to meet its stated goal: getting more Australians into work. In partnership with @AusUnemployment and unemployed workers themselves, we're committed to #WorkingItOut. Here are some recommendations from our new report: https://t.co/M5wdtdFy9w pic.twitter.com/oclyeJD84H— Per Capita (@percapita) September 20, 2018
