Secure Jobs. Better Future

The last two decades in Australia has seen a dramatic decline in permanent work, and corresponding growth of insecure forms of employment, such as casual, contract work and labour hire. Around 40% of Australian employees have insecure work and uncertain futures. Insecure work effects many industries including transport, manufacturing, agriculture, construction, education, health, hospitality, retail and administration.
