Australia is facing a huge unemployment crisis, which is feared to get worse next year. If big companies such as Optus (a telecommunications company) announced that they will let go of over a hundred employees, what will happen to small businesses like commercial collection agencies? Can the government provide a fallback for these people?
The public is clamoring for government assistance and an assurance that with the unemployment trend, Australian jobs will not go to overseas workers. And that’s another problem going against their favor.
