Have the green shoots taken roots? The news today that job advertisements have stabilised is comforting to employees especially those who lost their jobs over the last 10 months or so. The Job Services Australia contract – established by the Australian government to help both long term unemployed and those people who have significant vocational and/or non-vocational barriers to employment, have in fact been inundated by people who have been unemployed for less than 4 months. This group of people far outweigh in numbers the more marginalised and disadvantaged members of the Australiansociety. They have a Centrelink job seeker id, are receiving benefits and are job ready. The news that the employment market may have turned will be good music to their ears. It will also be good for the Labour Hire and recruitment companies who have seen over half of their revenue and consultant staff disappear.
