The fund of insurance of unemployed is composed of (a) payments from all enterprises, establishments, and persons exploiting labour against remuneration; (b) fines imposed for delay of payments; (c) casual payments.

In other words, the fund from which those who are temporarily unemployed are paid, is made up from contributions of employers or the State-owned works on a percentage basis of the total salaries. An unemployment fund is thereby created which provides for those compulsorily out of work. Everybody under the age exemption is compelled to work, and the honorable member for Denison (Mr. Laird Smith) nods his head in agreement.

Mr Laird Smith - I agree that every one should work.
