158 MORE CEP JOBS FOR VICTORIA

New Jobs for 158 unemployed Victorians have been approved through

the latest projects funded under the Federal Government's

Community Employment Program (CEP).

The 39 projects - worth $3.3 million - will receive $2.9 million

organisations.

This was announced today by the Federal Minister for Employment

and Industrial Relations, Mr Ralph W i l l i s , and the Victorian

Minister for Employment and Training, Mr Jim Simmonds.

The Ministers said CEP was aimed at creating work on worthwhile

community projects for people disadvantaged in the labour market,

such as the long-term unemployed, Aborigines, women, the disabled,

and migrants with English language d i f f i c u l t i e s .

Recruitment for people to work on the projects will be undertaken

by the Commonwealth Employment Service.

Among the latest projects to be funded are:

. Aborigines Advancement League: $501,932 - to employ 14 people

for 12 months on earthmoving and labouring on the f i r s t stage

of the Thornbury Sports Complex.
