   14   Social Security Legislation Amendment (Youth Jobs Path: Prepare, Trial, Hire) Bill 2016

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the bill be now read a second time— And on the amendment moved thereto by Mr Husic, viz.— That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House notes that the Turnbull Government cannot guarantee that, under Youth Jobs PaTH (Prepare, Trial, Hire):

(1)        jobs will not be displaced by cheaper labour;

(2)        wages will not be undercut and some participants will be paid below minimum award wages;

(3)        participants’ safety will not be compromised and that adequate insurance arrangements will be provided;

(4)        participants won’t be used to help businesses sidestep unfair dismissal protections; and

(5)        it will prioritise using small to medium enterprises in PaTH because they have a demonstrated track record of employing more job seekers through the jobactive programme.”—

Debate resumed.
