Listen to Sally Sinclair, CEO NESA speak with NewsRadio’s Glen Lauder. 

We’ve been hearing a lot about the number of job seekers increasing under the pandemic with around 800 thousand people forced out of work in March and April.

But last week’s budget revealed there’s also been a drop in funding to support people looking for work.

Close to a billion dollars has been removed from from employment services programs.

Sally Sinclair is the CEO of the National Employment Services Association. She told ABC NewsRadio’s Glen Lauder the funding drop could lead to an increase in the long-term unemployed.

High expectations and long wish-lists on Budget day 

Small and big businesses are hoping the budget will boost confidence and encourage consumer spending. There are calls for small business to benefit from targetted local infrastructure projects that will provide training and work for unemployment workers. Community and welfare groups are critical of tax cuts for high income earners. And there’s concern that women could be left further behind unless the budget does more to boost workforce participation.

Listen to Sally Sinclair, CEO NESA speak with Fran Kelly on RN Breakfast.

There’s concern about the Federal Government’s new online employment support service for the unemployed.

The digital platform was originally meant to be rolled out in 2022 but was fast-tracked in response to the avalanche of jobless Australians due to COVID-19.

But the network of private agencies paid to help people find work warn the online system could create a new class of long term unemployed.
