As the economy continues to grow off the back of the release of the border lockdowns that have been occurring—we saw a 3.3 per cent growth in the economy in the figures that came forward last week—more people will go back into work and they will continue to be encouraged to do so by the measures unashamedly put in place by this government, measures that the opposition has criticised us for and measures that the opposition has opposed in this place. The youth measures that we put in place were criticised by the opposition and opposed in this place by the opposition, but we are proud to support younger Australians and employers of young Australians to bring young people back to work.
