ACOSS Policy Webinar Series: Experiences of migrant workers in low and underpaid jobs

Thursday 1 July | 12PM – 1:30PM AEST

There are growing calls for unemployed people to take up jobs previously filled by temporary migrants. Employers complain they can’t find workers, workers complain of underpayment and ill treatment, and temporary migrants have been forgotten during the COVID-19 recovery including being denied income support.

This installment of the ACOSS Policy Webinar Series will focus on:

  • The role and experience of temporary migrants in low-paid employment in Australia
  • Policy options to end wage theft and exploitation and grow entry level jobs that are worth having

Our speakers include (with more to be announced):

  • Mohammad Al-Khafaji, CEO, FECCA – Chairing
  • Dr Joanna Howe, Associate Professor, University of Adelaide
  • Sherry Huang, Community Organiser, Migrant Workers Centre
  • Jannette Armstrong, United Workers Union
