National Meeting on Employment and Job Security

Wednesday 10th March 12pm-1.30pm AEDST

We would like to hear your perspectives on the impact of insecure work and precarious employment for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
RSVP here
MYAN is hosting a national consultation on Wednesday 10th March 12pm -1.30pm AEDST to hear from the sector about the impact of insecure work on young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

This meeting will inform MYAN’s submission to the Select Committee on Job Security, a committee established to inquire into and report on: the impact of insecure or precarious employment on the economy, wages, social cohesion and workplace rights and conditions.

We know that employment is a critical issue for the young people we work with.
Young people aged 15-24 in Australia are three times more likely to be unemployed or underemployed than adults aged 25 and over, representing a significant underutilisation of this group. The national unemployment rates for those aged 15 to 24 years are consistently double that of the average national rate for 15 to 64-year-olds.

With many in the casualised labour force, the ‘gig’ economy, and other precarious employment situations, young people have also been affected disproportionately by COVID-19-related job losses and reductions in hours, and many have had apprenticeships, work placements, or pending job offers withdrawn indefinitely.
We will also be hosting consultations with young people including our  Youth Ambassador Network and the Youth Disability Reference Group to ensure young people’ can contribute directly to our submission. 

We welcome your valuable input and look forward to engaging with the sector on this important topic on Wednesday 10th March 12pm -1.30pm AEDST.

Prior to the consultation, MYAN will share an agenda with key questions to guide the discussion.
We look forward to connecting with you.
