Low skilled jobs in Australia are “disappearing” says government minister
The Australian government says low-skilled jobs are disappearing from the economy and that the workforce will need to adapt quickly.
A new government agency, launched on Thursday by Skills Minister Chris Evans , will work with industry to lift the level of skills among Australia’s workforce.”We have enormous opportunities in Australia as a result of the growth in the economy,” Senator Evans told reporters in Canberra on Thursday.
That economic growth would create enormous opportunities for people to move into high-skilled and well-paid jobs.
“Low-skilled jobs are disappearing from the economy as a result of technology (and) structural changes,” he said. The new Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency replaces Skills Australia and will work to identify and end skills shortages within Australia’s workforce.
