Anglicare Australia’s annual Jobs Availability Snapshot has found that disadvantaged jobseekers are being left behind in the economic recovery.
The Snapshot looks at people who have barriers to work. They could be older workers who lost their jobs later in life, people who didn’t finish year 12, or people with disabilities.
The Snapshot shows that the jobs recovery is being driven by the most employable taking the most available vacancies. Unemployment has gone down since last year, but the number of people with barriers to work has not budged.
