New faces, old challenges: The Abbott government and youth employment

    Research output: Other contributionOther

    Abstract

    With the arrival of a Coalition federal government, a key challenge lies in the youth job market. By Lucas Walsh

    The Coalition has promised to generate one million new jobs over the next five years (1.7 per cent a year) and two million new jobs over the next decade (1.6 per cent increase per year). Data included in this year’s edition of How Young People are Faring, authored by The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) and published by the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA), provides some indication of the scope and scale of these challenges in relation to the casualisation of work, youth unemployment and broader changes to youth transitions.
