If you are serious about jobs you don’t cut money from TAFE.
But that’s exactly what Scott Morrison did – cutting more than $3 billion from TAFE, apprenticeships and vocational education.
Since the Liberals came to government, Australia has lost almost 150,000 apprenticeships and traineeships.
TAFE cuts are hurting young workers who want to get their foot in the door, and workers who need to reskill.
Youth unemployment is now above 20 per cent in parts of the country and thousands of workers lost their jobs after the Liberals and Nationals abandoned the automotive manufacturing industry.
More people should get the opportunity to learn a trade and help workers to re-skill – the Liberal and National cuts to TAFE funding must stop.
It’s up to us to spread the word, so sign the petition and help us to fight for TAFE.
