Episode 47 – Youth and Diversity with Alex mclean
One in three young people (26 and under) are either unemployed or underemployed in Australia.
Our youth rate for unemployment is at its highest in 40 years, and the Newstart allowance for young job seekers has not increased in over 25 years, even though our cost of living has gone up.
To top it all off, a recent study found there are only two rental properties currently on the market that a person on income allowance from the government can afford.
How’s a young person to catch a break? Especially if they don’t have the privilege of living with their parents, doing unpaid internships or volunteer work or living free from financial pressure to meet basic needs?
Caspar speaks with 26 year old, Co-Executive Officer of the National Youth Commission Australia (NYC), Alex McLean who is working to uncover and solve some of these big challenges for young people in Australia.
