The Senate Inquiry into jobactive has heard from stakeholders at three hearings. You can read the transcripts here.
ABC Radio Brisbane Focus with Emma Griffiths discusses why jobactive and employment services deserve a Senate Inquiry, with AUWU’s Jeremy Poxon, Greens Senator Rachel Siewert, ACOSS CEO Cassandra Goldie, and some great radio talkback.
We did it!
Back in May, the AUWU asked Greens Senator Rachel Siewert to investigate the government’s punitive and dysfunctional jobactive system. On Wednesday, the Senate agreed to the inquiry. Thank you Senator Rachel Siewert!
Years of hard work by AUWU volunteers have paid off. This is a high-level investigation into the abuses and wastefulness of jobactive – a $7 billion privatised employment services system.
