Nothing we heard from the Employment Minister today offers any confidence to anyone looking for a job that this government is on their side.
If the best that the Morrison Government can come up with to address our unemployment and underemployment is a hotline for employers to report people who haven’t agreed to a job – regardless of the reason – they really are showing the hallmarks of a tired and empty eight-year-old government.
Of all the bizarre things to emerge from this clueless government, a hotline to report people for an interview has to be near the top of the list.
Where is the hotline for people who have been systematically underpaid?
This isn’t a plan for jobs, this is a bizarre hotline that will inevitably see the government hound people looking for work rather than help them into a job.
The Morrison Government has no real plan for the millions of Australians who have found themselves without a job through no fault of their own because of this pandemic.
