Private Motion: Promotion of Sustainable and Productive Employment

House of Representatives - 3rd Session - 9th Republican Parliament

WHEREAS the recent economic and financial crisis has led to a rise in joblessness and a continuing fear of rising unemployment in the public service and across several industrial sectors;

AND WHEREAS it is expected that such an unemployment crisis will lead to greater social dislocation, worker exploitation, poverty and economic hardship;

AND WHEREAS the government’s employment policy has been an utter failure and the government has further mismanaged the function of labour market planning;

BE IT RESOLVED that this House condemn the government on its failure to promote decent, sustainable and productive employment.
