The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) estimates there are 1.4 million full-time job vacancies, which means an average job vacancy rate of 6.5 per cent.
You can find a detailed breakdown of the unemployment rate here.
The ABS has also estimated there are over 4 million part-time jobs available in Australia, and that the unemployment level for those jobs is close to 10 per cent, or around 16 per cent of the total workforce.
2/6 What is the unemployment benefit?
The unemployment benefit is available to unemployed Australians and to unemployed people in other parts of the country.
It is paid when someone who is not actively looking for work applies for the benefit.
It starts at a maximum of $200 a fortnight and increases with time spent unemployed, and is capped at $500 a fortnight for the first two months.
It will increase by $500 every week for a maximum total of $1,600 per fortnight for a person who is unemployed for 12 months or more.
A fortnight’s pay is calculated based on the fortnightly rate for the fortnight, but it is indexed to the Australian dollar.
The unemployment benefits are paid directly to the unemployed person.
The total amount available for the unemployed is $1.5 billion per year.
However, the amount available is capped on a per-person basis at $750 per fortnight.
3/6 Who can claim the unemployment benefits?
The unemployed person must have been unemployed for at least 12 months, have been actively looking or have been on benefits for 12 weeks.
If you were on benefits from January 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020, you can claim unemployment benefits.
If the person who was on benefits was not employed, you must be unemployed for less than 12 months.
If on unemployment benefits you have been self-employed for more than 12 weeks, you are eligible to claim the jobseekers allowance, which pays up to $250 a fortnight per employee.
It can be claimed up to two times, and you will only be entitled to the full amount once.
The jobseekers’ allowance is paid by the ABS.
The maximum amount of the jobseeker’s allowance is $300 a fortnight, which is capped by $1 a fortnight at $250.
If someone is eligible for the Jobseekers’ Allowance, they will only receive the maximum amount, and will not be able to claim more than $500 per fortnight, unless they are working full- or part- time.
The Jobseekers Allowance is paid to people aged between 25 and 64, and for unemployed people aged 25 to 64.
If your jobseeking activity has ended or you have stopped looking for a job, you should call 1800 751 800.
4/6 ‘I was looking for an income-generating job, but this guy offered me $700 a fortnight’ This is what former teacher Sarah McNeil told a story to a TV interviewer about her life as a student in New South Wales.
She says she was looking to find an income generating job, and she was offered $700 an hour by a guy who said he could do the same.
Sarah’s story was featured in the ABC’s Q&A program, ‘The Job’, and was followed by a segment with a panel of people, including former prime minister Tony Abbott.
The ABC’s program was titled ‘Jobseekers’, and featured an interview with Sarah’s former school teacher, who had been the primary school teacher for more a decade.
Listen to the interview below: 5/6 In her interview with the ABC, Sarah described how her first job, at a children’s home, was not very lucrative.
She said: “I had to take some kids who had to go to school with me for a year, so it was a very hard job.”
She also described how she was paid a $70 salary as a teacher, but was still unable to live on her own.
She was also concerned that her children would lose out to the men who were able to find jobs, but did not want to lose them.
“They [the men] are the ones that are paid so much more,” she said.
“The kids are the one group that is getting nothing.”
The story is told in the book ‘The Story of Sarah McNeill’, and follows a number of similar stories.
