Member for Barker Tony Pasin has welcomed an over $17 Million dollar package to entice job seekers to move to regional areas for employment.
The 'Relocation Assistance to Take Up a Job' program will see eligible job seekers receive up to $6,000 for Australians and $2,000 for eligible visa holders to help cover costs of relocation for employment from November the 1st this year.
This week Tony Pasin said that there is still several job vacancies in the local electorate.
The local member went on to say “Unfortunately, the reality is that displaced Aussie workers have been reluctant to leave the cities and suburbs to relocate to rural and regional Australia and this relocation payment seeks to help address this.”
