Welcome to the Job Show: Corporate Welfare $$$$$$


My name is Ian (taffy) Evans, I'm a 54 year old unemployed truck driver, who is on the federal government's Newstart allowance.

A few week's ago I was asked by the "Salvation Army Employment " plus here in Springvale to attend a (3) week full-time job search program via a COMPANY CALLED "THEJOBSHOW.COM.AU", run by (2) gentlemen by the name of "CHRIS BARTON, PLUS WAYNE VITNELL".


I had the feeling that this so-called job search training program, was not tendered as in a normal business way, maybe like just ask my good mate "KEVIN ANDREWS M.P.Federal Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.

Foreword to "The Job Show" Website

As Federal Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations, I welcome Wayne Vitnell and Chris Barton's launch of The Job Show website and their goal of helping more Australians into work.

The Coalition Government has a strong employment record, with more people in work now than at any time in Australia's history. Indeed, more than 1.6 million jobs have been created since the Government came to office in 1996, with over half of these being full-time positions.

This Government's economic management has led to low inflation and interest rates, which are necessary for jobs growth.

Strong jobs growth has also helped push the unemployment rate to its lowest level in about 28 years. We now have a labour market the likes of which we have not seen for a generation.

The Government's workplace reforms have also contributed to this, by creating a more flexible workplace relations system, which has led to more jobs and higher wages for more Australians. That is important because having a job is about much more than earning an income; it means a higher standard of living and peace of mind for Australian families.

Despite these achievements, the Government will not rest on its laurels. Some Australians continue to face real difficulties securing employment.

The Government is determined to create more jobs for more Australians and will continue to develop policies to ensure that disadvantaged job seekers in particular have the opportunity to secure employment. This includes improvements to the Job Network system and further workplace relations and welfare reform.

While the Government has an important role in helping Australians find employment, it cannot work alone, and welcomes the efforts of those in the private and community sectors.

The Job Show is an example of how independent organisations are seeking to provide services which help both job seekers find work and employers to hire quality staff.

I congratulate Wayne and Chris for their achievements to date and look forward to the ongoing development of The Job Show.

Kevin Andrews Federal Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.

The above is a good plug for some old mates from Adelaide eg Wayne vitelli to his old mate Kevin Andrews M.P Federal Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.

At first " did not have a working website, now they have got a working website that works.

When you delve deeper into this website you find at the just contact us area, all you get is mobile phone numbers of "Chris Barton, plus Wayne Vitnell, you would think that on the website there would be a full postal address, plus you also would like too see a "Australian business number (ABN).

We also heard on the grapevine that these (2) fellows will be sending a service fee into the federal government of over $1000 dollars per unemployed person on this so-called training program ???

Please can you look into this new area of jobsearch trainers via the "employment plus Springvale programs for us unemployed? I look forward to hear your opinion of the above issue, plus check out the website The Job Show.

It is hard enough being unemployed dealing with the job net work providers at the best of times, but when you come across a scam deal set up to make huge monies out of us unemployed dudes, you realize what a bunch of crooks in power are running our country.

On working behind the lies these parasites"wordsmiths"come up with, you see a pattern of getting paid over $1000 dollars per unemployed dude over (3) weeks course, when from day one on our attendance list we had over (25) dudes would should turn up for this course,$1000 x 25 dudes x 3 weeks course = nice money what ?

When you try to enter the website they assume that "macromedia flash player" is enabled on your computer, so I think most dudes don't click on their download link to make the web site work, so they can not even get a web site to work properly.

Pity Labor Couldn't be United over Social Services Cuts?
HoWARd/Costello (funny fellow) Big Mac and Small Fries. And Beazely's Kentucky Fried Two Piece Snack Box for those on minimum wages who should be enjoying - better Medicare Rebates, Public Housing, Hospitals, Education and Transport Infrastructure but instead get just $6.00.

Happy mothers day: Single mums forced to work!
AUSTRALIA can no longer sustain its warfare system, but can sustain the social dollar and that depends on where your priorities are? USA/Iraq or Australia?

HoWARd Gov't could be slued, community warns
Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) members will join a rally in Victoria Square today, protesting against the anticipated changes to workplace relations.

Work for the dole and prison industry slavery
Work for the dole certainly offers a lot of variety. The impression given by the government is that most unemployed do creative and helpful work assisting the community.

'Social Services cheats' may face election next time around
The Federal fascist HoWARd Government is attacking the poor and underprivileged again (on all fronts - now including social services, disabled, single mothers, Medicare rebate and IVF treatment.

Single parents deserve a living wage and not persecution
Being a single parent is hard work. It means a lot of responsibility. But you are not paid properly to do this work. You are paid way below what is recognised as the poverty line. StandUp! Believes that looking after a child is a job and should be paid for like any other job.

Labor sees problems in welfare proposals
The Federal Opposition says proposed changes to Australia's welfare system are a cost-cutting measure and will leave disability and sole parent pensioners worse off.

Dismantle the war machine, slash taxes, privatisation and keep social services The Centre for Independent Studies report says the flat-rate income tax of 10 per cent would ensure most Australians could afford to pay for essential services such as health and education, instead of relying on welfare [social service] payments.

Costello to force single mums to look for work?
SINGLE mothers would be forced to look for work once their children reached school age, under a draconian welfare package outlined last night by fascist Pastor Peter Costello to bolster funds to spend on military hardware and the ongoing illegal and degrading war in Iraq.

The HoWARd Government is simply robbing the disabled blind
KERRY O'BRIEN: Federal cabinet adjourned today still undecided about the final formula for what has become politically one of the toughest reform challenges the Government will face this term. For the past two decades, the disability support pension has been one of the fastest growing welfare payments [social security payments.]

Encouragement is the key to social-services-to-work programs
Corporate Welfare! I think we should start with Ingeus Company. Telling us what we already know for $$$$!

Peter Saunders shake-up is long overdue: Welfare Not Warfare
Peter Saunders: Many DSP claimants are older men with limited skills who have had difficulty finding work?

Welfare Reform for Warfare Expenditure?
John Howard: "Self-evidently we would have liked the major combat to have gone differently ... [but] coalition withdrawal or defeat is unimaginable."

Govt plots post-July strategy?
Fascist Prime Minister insists he is not on a mission to punish welfare recipients [social services.]

HoWARd 'determined' to make the disabled woRK?
The Federal Government is considering a system of "coercion" and incentive to force the disabled to work. But what happened to 6 billion-budget surpluses? Why do they need to force disabled people to work? Do they need more money and less disabled people? Or do would they rather spend the money on WAR?

Opposition pension claims valid
The Federal Governments secret agenda to cut pensions, including the disability and single parent payments while spending billions on military hardware is just too much for most disabled people to accept.

Thousands march for disability protest
"We are not prepared to go back to the dark ages. This has to be reversed," Mr Preston said. "We are hoping that the community sees that we shouldn't be taking money from people with disabilities. These people have had it tough all their lives (and) there is already more unmet need than we can cope with."

Howard's Job Network Bailout
Up to 670,000 people on disability support pensions will be encouraged to sign up to the Job Network under a radical new plan to get disabled people off welfare and into work.

THE HILLSONG'S ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF ' NEO-LIBERALISM' Only a bent mind would envisage the possibility or think of the concept that a '2nd Neo-Liberal 'front' promoted by the right and posing as a Church would enter politics under the flag of "Family First Party".

Costello, Howard's Disciple

JOHN HOWARD AND PETER Costello lost their vision for Australia from the time they were elected and embarked on a vision for the neo-Liberals.

Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel?
Well praise the Lord the light is Hell bent here on Peter Costello, treasurer of the Howard Government who now has his own "flock" of onward Christian Soldiers.

Corporate Welfare

Corporate welfare or how to steal social services?
Ever wondered why there are so many homeless, why we need a 10 pc GST, lack of services for mental disability, still paying off the Olympics, poor public transport planning etc etc etc?


Work for the dole is legal slavery
Work for the dole was originally sold to us by Howard as a warm and fuzzy light work project. We would be working for nothing but we would be enjoying giving back something to the community, so it was reckoned.

Peter Costello commended this result in his budget speech. Even if we were to believe this figure it still means more than half a million living at a level much lower than that is recognised as poverty.

Mark Latham's, token gestures for older unemployed
StandUp appreciates the fact that Mark Latham is concerned about older unemployed people. His specialist job network proposal aimed at older people might provide a bit of assistance.

Work for the dole failure for two thirds
THE Un-Australian: " MORE than a third of the people who completed the Howard Government's work-for-the-dole programs last year were in jobs or studying within three months of finishing.

Work for the dole? $10.00?
StandUp! Wishes to draw your attention to a serious attack on all of us--work for the dole. We were assured that unemployed would not be forced to work in areas where employed workers would normally be employed. This has shown to be a lie! Under work for the dole, unemployed have been forced to carry out; concreting, tiling, landscaping, repairs, renovation, painting, gardening, nurses and teachers aid work.

A major independent study commissioned by the Government and released today under Freedom of Information by The Australian newspaper indicates that the 'Work for the Dole' program actually reduces the job prospects of unemployed people.

Youth welfare system unfair: ACOSS
The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) is warning urgent action is needed to fix youth poverty and disincentives for the unemployed to improve their job prospects.

Bringing up children Can we afford it?
Peter Costello expects us to carry out our patriotic duty by going home and having more children. But for most people it is a struggle to bring up one child let alone two or three.

Federal Budget: Tax cuts for the rich!
For the Howard government, unemployed people are not even worth thinking about.

Private job network agency blues
Can you trust a private job network agency? No you can't! A friend of ours is registered at MTC Marrickville.

Centrelink puts the screws on prison debt
A 1999 study by the Brisbane Prisoners Legal Service revealed that on leaving prisoners had an average debt of $14,031. Almost one in five had a debt to Centrelink while in prison. This debt arose as a result inability to cancel things such as leases, Social Security payments, utilities and telephones.

Democrats approve tougher welfare penalties: But how does that pan out?
There used to be an old saying in Australia" if your hungry steal a sheep and leave the pelt on the fence.

Troop deployment not a deepening of effort: Hill
Deploying an extra 30 troops to Iraq was not a deepening of Australia's involvement because they were being sent to protect those already there, Defence Minister Robert Hill said yesterday.

Auditor Generals damning defence report
The Defence Department computer system upgrade has cost Australia tens of millions of dollars in a gigantic bungle, according to the Federal Opposition. The Commonwealth auditor-general has issued a damning report into the project.
