A new Federal Government incentive is now available to help local businesses hire additional staff.
Federal Member for Forde Bert van Manen MP said the changes introduced through the Coalition Government’s jobactive PaTH Program would help local business hire young people in the community.
New wage subsidies are a key component of the Government’s new jobactive PaTH Program, which will be fully rolled out in April and will help up to 120,000 vulnerable young Australians through pre-employment training, internships and these new wage subsidies.
“A financial incentive of up to $10,000 is available to encourage businesses to employ new staff,” Mr van Manen said.
“This will in turn help our local economy and create more jobs.”
Mr van Manen said there was no higher priority for the community and for the Government than creating jobs.
“This incentive is not only about growing our economy, but also helping young people in our community become job ready.
“Our jobactive PaTH Program is all about getting young people ready, giving them a go and getting them a job.
“I strongly encourage more local business owners to take advantage of this program, including new wage subsidies, to take on extra staff and grow their business.”
