"Job Network fiasco exposed
Disabled people, parents and older workers are unwittingly being used to prop up a flawed $2.5 billion federal government jobs program that has already received a $670 million-a-year bail-out. By Laura Tingle Chief, political correspondent (Feb 18) "
Unfortunately I can't link to the actual report since I'm not a member of this website.. I just read the article over lunch and thought I'd make reference to it.
When I went to my job seeking course at Job Network I was one of 8 people in my 15 person class who already had a job. plus two of the people who didn't have jobs were studying. 4 people in that class actually needed work and were unable to get it.. the rest of us just needed more hours so we could not rely on benefits. She actually wanted me to skip work so I could attend her course. How absolutely deranged is that?
I should have written that paper on the inadequacies of Job Network agences years ago when they opened. I was going to.. I don't know what happenned.
