Anti-Poverty Week Research (2014)

ACT Council of Social Services (ACTCOSS) and WCHM released data during Anti-Poverty Week in October 2014 showing that—outside of public sector employment—the industries with growing employment opportunities in the ACT that do not require degree-level qualifications are those where women are significantly over-represented, have comparatively low (full-time) wages and part-time employment is the norm. This suggests that many workers struggle to earn enough to cover their costs of living, which is concerning when we consider that getting and keeping a full time job is the critical factor in getting out and staying out of poverty.
