New submission: Insecure work in the ACT

25 July 2017

In July this year, ACTCOSS made a submission to the Standing Committee on Education, Employment and Youth Affairs inquiry into the extent, nature and consequence of insecure work in the ACT.

ACTCOSS’ fundamental concern in addressing this issue is to ensure that work pays a living wage and offers basic entitlements. The submission identifies the need to invest in a whole-of-community response to insecure employment that involves government, community sector, employers, and education and training providers to address socioeconomic disadvantage and barriers to secure employment.
