Aug 08, 2014 Response to the Interim Report of the Reference Group on Welfare Reform

Jobs Australia welcomes the opportunity to contribute to this important discussion. The Interim report of the Reference Group on Welfare Reform raises many important issues. Unemployment – and, particularly, long-term unemployment – is a complex economic and social problem, with many different factors affecting the success or otherwise of interventions that aim to assist more people into work. The breadth of issues covered by the report reflects that complexity.

In this submission, we will offer some general remarks (Part 1) and then provide more detailed responses to specific questions (Part 2).
