Anglicare Australia Submission on the Future of Work
Jan 23, 2018, 10:23 AM
This submission is to draw the Committee’s attention to our Jobs Availability Snapshots, completed in 2016 and 2017, as their findings and recommended policy approaches were directly relevant to the inquiry’s Terms of Reference. Our key points were that future employment strategies must be inclusionary and incorporate measures designed to ensure that people with significant barriers to work are not left behind, as they are now. Furthermore, the systematic and ongoing corrosion of job security and conditions needs urgent attention. Any future employment strategies must explicitly address the gender pay gap with concrete measures, including consideration of legislative measures to end it.
