Working Future: The Australian Government’s White Paper on Jobs and Opportunities was released in September 2023.
It outlines the Government’s vision for a dynamic and inclusive labour market. One where everyone has the opportunity for secure, fairly paid work and people, businesses and communities can be beneficiaries of change and thrive.
Five ambitious objectives contribute to achieving the Government’s vision:
- Delivering sustained and inclusive full employment
- Promoting job security and strong, sustainable wage growth
- Reigniting productivity growth
- Filling skills needs and building our future workforce
- Overcoming barriers to employment and broadening opportunity
This White Paper provides a Roadmap to position the Australian labour market for the future. It outlines the practical actions being taken and the further reform directions required to achieve this potential.
A fact sheet in Easy Read format will be published shortly.
