Just heard from the Department that over 100,000 people have dropped out of the #Jobactive program. They are not tracked and the Department “assumes” they have gone into employment 🤔🤔🤔

#Auspol #Estimates
45 minutes in #Estimates is not enough time to ask about #Jobactive, an employment programs which cost over $7billion & affects hundreds of thousands of Australians

#Estimates has revealed that 104,480 people on the #Jobactive program have not re-engaged with their job provider after having their payment cancelled.

The department is not tracking these people and they do not know their circumstances, they assume they are employed?

I’m at the Senate Inquiry into #ParentsNext today. Thread 👇🏽
Hearing from @CSMCVIC, @GoodShepANZ & @CFECFW. Their key issues w #ParentsNext:
1) miscategorises parents as ‘unemployed’ - parenting is work
2) should be voluntary, inappropriate to link parent support to TCF
3) undermines human rights obligations, targets single & ATSI mothers
Question from @SenatorSiewert about privacy prompts testimony about single mothers being fearful about disclosing info about kids schools etc when their abusive ex partners are stalking them. Getting family violence survivors exempted from #ParentsNext described as a “minefield”
