The Business Council of Australia and the Council of Small Business of Australia support Labor’s proposal for changes to the Jobactive system if it wins the 2019 federal election. Amongst other things, Labor will relax the requirement that unemployed people must apply for up to 20 jobs a month. The BCA argues that this creates an unnecessary cost for both businesses and job-seekers, as employers receive many application from people who are not qualified for a job. Labor may also make changes to the ‘Work for the Dole’ scheme.
