I move:

That the Senate—

(a) acknowledges the success of the Wage Connect program in helping long term unemployed back into the workforce;

(b) expresses concern that this program has been suspended due to a high level of demand for this service; and

(c) calls on the Government to re-commence the scheme and increase the number of places available through it, particularly for older workers who face significant discrimination in the labour market.
