Could this be extended to older job seekers? I always wanted to do this, especially during past periods of prolonged unemployment, but by the time it was introduced i was just too old by a tiny bit for the cutoff and have been ever since. I always thought it was rather short sighted restricting it to only young people.

Isn’t this the Abbott programme where participants are paid half the minimum wage and aren’t protected by the standard workplace protections that everyone else in Australia gets? Super tempting.

Do you have a problem with that?
