     6   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.

Ms Henderson was granted leave to continue her speech when the debate is resumed.

Debate adjourned (Mr Marles), and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
