Support for jobless youth

Posted: 9th Apr

A report by a national anti-poverty group identified areas in Gippsland including Latrobe Valley as "hotspots" for youth unemployment.

The report, released by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, revealed 13.4 per cent of young people aged 15-24 years old were without a job in the Latrobe-Gippsland region as of December 2018. This figure was higher than the national unemployment rate of 11.2 per cent for all age groups.
