COTA Australia welcomed the establishment of the Senate Select Committee on Job Security and appreciates the opportunity to present this submission, with a specific focus on mature age and older workers
Older Australians need a comprehensive plan from the Australian Government, demonstrating that all areas of Government are thinking and acting in a coordinated fashion to improve the lives of mature age and older Australians.
COTA Australia commends the delivery of stimulus measures designed to incentivise employment. COTA Australia does wish to express a number of concerns. No older workers should be displaced due to JobMaker. Wait times and the rate of JobMaker eligibility should be reconsidered.
