An analysis of Scott Morrison’s pledge to create 1.25 million jobs over the next five years has found that the vast majority of those roles will be as Prime Minister of Australia, not full time permanent positions as first expected.
800,000 Australians are expected to take on the role of Prime Minister over the next five years.
But with Prime Ministerial positions usually being temporary – lasting just a few weeks on average – critics say the jobs promise is misleading.
“These are not permanent positions. What Australians need are long-term jobs that offer certainty and security, not something that you just try out for for a couple of weeks,” employment advocate Samantha Reed said today. “It’s another example of the gig economy taking over”.
