Jobs reform 'beats UK model'
Sep 02, 2013 (The Australian - ABIX via COMTEX) --
Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has promised to remodel the current system of non-profit agencies managing placements for the unemployed, which is worth $A8.5bn. The creation of a new Jobs & Training Australia body and 42 local jobs boards is being welcomed by the sector, but the initial funding of $A34.4m is seen as too modest. The approach by the Australian Labor Party differs from that in the UK, where critics say the Government's initiatives have failed. Among the private providers facing penalties for under-performance in the UK is the Ingeus business of Rudd's spouse, Therese Rein.
