2016–17 Budget handed down

Tuesday 3 May 2016

On Tuesday 3 May the Treasurer the Hon Scott Morrison handed down the 2016–17 Budget.

A key element of the Budget is a Youth Employment Package to help more Australians, especially young job seekers, to get into work and move off welfare.

The package includes the Youth Jobs PaTH (Prepare-Trial-Hire) that will boost young people's job prospects by helping them be better prepared for the workplace and encouraging more businesses to hire them.  The package also includes other employment measures to encourage entrepreneurship and self-employment.
