Hume region youth employment
03 September 2015
Ms RYAN (Euroa) — There has been an alarming rise in youth unemployment across the Hume region, which includes my electorate of Euroa. Youth unemployment has increased to 18.7 per cent in Hume since Labor was elected, which is an increase of an astounding 5.5 per cent. This government is making life harder for young people who are struggling to find work. You only have to look at its crazy decision to create a new public holiday on the grand final parade day, which will see thousands of casual workers, many of them young people, lose their shifts.
