Hijack The Streets: What do you think of the Youth Jobs PaTH program?
This year's budget announced a $752 million initiative to help young people land jobs through the Youth Job PaTH (Prepare-Trial-Hire) program. The scheme aims to provide job seekers with “intensive pre-employment skills training”. Participants will be entitled to a $200 fortnightly payment on top of their usual income support.
The program has been met with both praise and criticism, but what do the students think? Hijacked went to Sydney universities to find out.
