Australia’s insecure work shame

28 April, 2022

With more than one in four workers now in insecure work, the current federal government has failed to address job insecurity for hundreds of thousands of Australians – including many IEU members.

Job insecurity didn’t happen by accident.

“Australia used to have the most secure jobs in the world,” said IEU-QNT Assistant Secretary Brad Hayes.

“Whether it’s term-time employment, casualised jobs with less rights, labour hire that underpays for the same job, part-time work without meaningful guaranteed hours, or years of low pay growth, insecure work is a serious problem for our community,” Brad said.
